Default 2001 Deville Want To Put 22x9.5 For the Summer!

Hi Everyone,

I just signed up for the cadillac forum and I need some friendly advice.

I have a 2001 Deville and want to put 22 on it for the summer. The Rims picked out are the Dropstar 03 and I want to go with a 22x9.5 (255 30 22) tire.

I need know to know what modifications if any will make this work.
Do they need spacers? If so What Size? (I heard is was a 5/16)
Do I need to roll the fenders?
What Kind of probelems you ran into driving?
Can the suspension handle the 22's?

Anyone that has this will size please reply with your feedback!

here is an fyi if your going to put 22s on a deville you need a 22x8.5 rim and you can use a 255/30/22 tire. you will need to roll the rear fenders out of the way and it may rub on the inner feners in the front where there is a section that sticks out.. but thats it..

if u go any wider on the wheel with you will need to lift the car and it will look corny (in my opinion) the tires will be streatched on the rims also and that is not good for the tires, 9+ inches is too wide for that size tire. not to mention it will not have the LAC ride either..

you can fit 24s under these cars also but its realy realy not worth it. you will need a 8.5 rim and its way to skinny
