I am looking for a set of wheels to purchase for my car. I have the H&R springs to lower the ride height, but have not installed them yet. I would like to put as much meat in the rear as possible without having to do any major modifications (fender roll excluded). I am also leaning towards a 19" wheel, as the roads here completely suck with the amount of oil field semi trucks that use them. So I want a little more sidewall then what the 20" wheels will allow.

The over all look I am trying to achieve for the vehicle can be seen in the photo below. I fell asleep in the offset portion of wheel class, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I've got stock ctsv wheels with a 5 mm spacer up front and SS springs

I think h&r springs go lower

Ctsv coupe rear wheels stick out a little farther, I don't know if this fitment is as aggressive as you're looking for.

see the post below by s13remi on here, he's got z06 wheels and probably the wildest fitment on this site

edit: got his name right

They're slp tips p/n 310301618 and 310301617

And for offsets I did a little more reading and the ctsv wheels are 19x9 +51up front and 19x9.5 +55 in the rear (coupes are 19x10 +40 rear) some G8 guys have run the coupe rears without much trouble, probably with a 295/30 tire. This provides a pretty aggressive fit, so if you like the v wheels you can find a set of those easy enough, or find an aftermarket wheel with the same specs (some companies will custom do offsets iirc)

IndianaJoe, where did you get this info for the CTS-V wheels. The site that I look at has a completely different offset. at Wheel-size.com I show. front at 9.5 x 19 with a 23mm offset and the Rears at 10 x 19 with a 39mm offset. for a 2016 CTS-V I want to make sure my calculations are correct. I have been studying, measuring and even as of today added some 20mm spacers to my PPV ( 2010 equinox wheels with 46mm offset ) to make sure all of my calculations are as what I want. So far I am looking at a 9x20 with 35mm offset both front and back. But again, I want to make sure that what I am pulling from this site is correct.

The numbers I posted are for v2 wheels, v3 wheels have very different offsets
