It just occurred to me that the wood section doesn't have a single sticky. I would like this compilation thread to be one... but first we need contributions.

The reason i ask for only larger than stock is because if you want to see smaller you can just go to cusstom.com and look at about a billion spoked lowriders. That and i'm sure we've all seen stockers. I don't care how long this takes, i do realize traffic here is slow but it's all us fleetwood lovers got! So even if you've already posted your pics, post em again here and make this a good sticky! and no links that are going to be dead in the near future damnit lol

ready set go. and please atleast put a number referring to the wheel diameter. if u want to list the wheel/tire specs even better.

Some tech info: You can go pretty big on a fleetwood as long as you arent scared to modify your skirt retention hardware, and keep your offsets between +10 and +18 for up to 10" wide wheels.

Not uncommon to see 22's and 24's tuck right under a 'wood. It's late tonight, but I'll go through and pull some fleetwoods out of the rockford thread in the wheel section later.

Unless someone wants to beat me to it.

The last three are all 22's. The sammed white one is what makes me want a fleetwood. Too much sexy.

The black car with engraved wheels looks like 24's, and the first one has...Get this... 6 lug 22's from a late model Escalade. They're either running adapters (unlikely do to offset) or they've had them filled and drilled (see redrill sticky in wheel section.)

Not every FW on Cusstom is lowrider style, I found most of those pix there.

It's much faster to use the search :D

saved this from a while back. a guy in british columbia bot offset 18/20's I think. I just loved how it came out. So i saved it.


with 20" AMG monoblock rims I got for a steal on ebay. Needed an adapter, so I took em off till I beef up all the **** that holds the wheels on. heh

dropped 1.5" in the rear with cargo springs and Bilsteins. Haven't done much more for some years, other than routine maint. Has a nice comfy ride with police duty shocks up front.


everyone gotta love the impy rim. That's how it sits now.


some photochops I did dun.

too much work to post em all, check out the rest here pics

edit: Oh, hey Will ! I think we crossed paths on one of the Jeep forums.

I found the big 20" amg rims I had on with 245's much more sprightly, aka quicker steering response, and did not follow road ruts as much as the 255 bridestones I have on the impy rim. The larger profile on the 17's definietly soak up the bumps better too.
