Help! How do I put these rims on???????

I have a 1978 Cutlass Supreme, and I have recently aquired 20 inch, 150 Spoke rims. I want to put these on my car but I have no idea how . I know of course I will need tires so if you guys have any suggestions that would be great. I was planning on just takeing the rims to the tire shop and them telling me what to do because I dont even know what kind of rims they are. I think there Luxor or something. But Ill worry about that later. What I need to know is how to lift this car up so theyll fit. Im only 17 so Ill need to know the cheapest way possible. What do I need to put these rims on. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

i beleive their actually is a standard frame, what alot of people do is get the lift blocks from a auto parts store, and just insert them betweem the frame and chassis, be carfull with brake lines , gas lines etc etc

well, have you figured it out yet?

personally I dont know the dimensions on said vehicle, so I can only tell you how to get there

you might want an air ride adjustable suspension

you might need some lift, you might even have to cut into the body to fit them, try finding some people that actually do the bodywork, you should probably send this kind of work to a shop because they will be able to cut your body so it'll look good ( the job anyways, cant talk about how good the car will look)

Another classic thread. Where do these people come from?
