Yea. Crest Cadillac-Hummer-Saab. We have a body shop behind the Hummer building. I work at the Service center next to the Body Shop. Engine/Trans tech.

One shot of your poor car. Rims look awesome. Love the center caps.

Do you know the lug pattern? If cadillac has a matching pattern, I am sure we have some take offs that the parts manager would sell pretty cheap.

Did the insurance company total the car? It doesn't really look like it would cost much to fix it. Granted, there may be more to the damage than the eye can see?

I don't think we have anything in that pattern. I can check though. I will let you know if I come up with something. Heck, if this doesn't pan out, I would go to pullapart and get a set from them. Last I checked it was like 11 per wheel/tire.

I think all we have is 5x115. That's the only lug pattern the Cadillacs have been using for a while. Sorry man.
