    i am in the process of buying a 1956 cadillac. It has a set gold colored aluminum rims kinda look like a hurricane style. i think that they are factory but not for sure. would like to know if anyone else has seen these and who made them. i dont have any pics at this time.

    What you discribe may be Cadilac Eldorado wheels. A gold colored wheel that was really neat looking.

    That's great, Richard D gets a photo from a website and thinks he knows what he's talking about, when a few posts before he says it would be hard to do without a photo.

    Those wheels were known as Sabre wheels, standard on Eldorado, optional on other Cadillacs. They came polished (silver) or gold. They are also now reproduced.

    Dude I am an asshole, and you're a pain in the ass, nobody has an opinion on everything but you seem to, you just ramble on and on and on about nothing, you might be bored but on top of it all, you're boring.
    Trust me, I'm not the only one who sees your post count proliferating like bacteria in a petri dish as the possible work of a deranged mind.

    Can't you sit back and listen?

    And I don't hunt down your posts, they virtually unavoidable, like fatasses in sweatpants at Wal Mart, and just as worthless.

    Get a life dude.

    Grab em up! Theyre pretty valuable. We got two at Hershey for $20 from a guy who didnt know what they were worth. Meanwhile I saw multiple sets for over $400!

    They're worth a shit load, probably $1000 or more depending on condition. I kick myself in the ass for not buying three of 'em for $150 many years ago at a garage sale, I was thinking he's only got 3.
