    I have a 99 Cadillac Catera as my new daily driver...and I want to know what kind of wheels I should get. There arent many different options out there and I was wondering if anyone has any idea on other options I could get.


    Just a stock pic for those who don't know what it is.

    find out the bolt pattern and backspacing you need, then search based on that

    Keep in mind that bigger wheels will make the handling rougher. Not that a Caddy doesn't have lots of mush to spare, but even so, it could just end up making more noise with no real benefit. And given that it's a FWD sedan, the only reason to change out the wheels is to improve handling -- it's still gonna look like a Camry no matter how blingy the rims are.
