Thats my Corvette you posted the picture of. I was very pleased with the CCW wheels, you guys are going to love them. I was planning on getting the SP16A's if I ended up getting a V. Stiff1- you are going to have to post some pictures once you get them on!
This is going to sound like a stupid question(s) but I will ask them anyway:
1) Is the CTS-V six lug pattern the same as a suburban 1500?
2) Is the offset different?
3) Will the CTS-V wheels accomodate conventional (non-runflat) tires?
I suspect the answers to 2 and 3 are "yes" and "no" respectively, which makes the answer to 1 irrelevant, but I thought this might be the easiest way to get the answers. If they will work on suburbans (denalis, escalades, etc), then the market for the used wheels increases quite a bit.....and gives those of us with both vehicles the option of customizing both cars by buying one set of wheels.....
I think the stock V wheels are so good lookiong why replace them? Non runflats may be a thought though. Is this jacking the thread if I ask what a soultion might be for carring a spare tire? The tire well does not hold a spare.
The plastic storage tub in the spare tire well does indeed come out without too much heartburn. Mine has been out and I've been forming some fiberglass inserts for both sides. One side is done which has been glued in creating a sealed subwoofer enclosure of about .7 cu. ft. net. The second side I've elected to make into a custom storage bin to hold: small compressor; tire goop/sealant; first aid kit. The entire thing will upholster in black vinyl or possible trunk carpet to match the V when finished.
My apologies for not posting pics yet. I keep forgetting to bring the digital camera home from the shop.
So, the solution for me will likely be another set of tires on the factory wheels because I like their looks enough, but probably not run flats - hence the reason for installing the aforementioned items.
Sorry, no thread hijack intended here. If you do pull the plastic tub out and could find an idiot spare to fit, I don't think there would be much weight gain. The tub has a steel tube running through it to aid in rear impact situations, much the same way a spare tire located in the same position would absorb some of the force from a rear impact. In other words, the tub isn't just plastic, and isn't all that light either.
Yeah, the tray was a whole lot heavier than I thought it would be.
I did get the part number for the air sensor for the wheels. It is: 25763677
Dealer cost is around 52.00 a piece. It only works on the V and Eldorado.
Just got off the phone with Chip at CCW and they are waiting on the customer to send a pic of the wheels they made for him. It is actually a six spoke design instead of the five spoke of the 505's. They said it lines up better since we have six lug wheels. As soon as they can post a pic I will be ordering. Sending the air sensors Fed EX to them sometime this week. I'll keep everyone posted.
