2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods Discussion, V2 wheels in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Has anyone done this? Obviously it will require a 5 lug conversion but I've searched for 30 minutes and haven't ...
I like the way they look....I'm a sucker for factory wheels and think these would be a nice upgrade without being a "big deal". Experience has taught me that factory wheels tend to hold up well to everyday use and polishing anything on a regular basis isn't what i want to do in my spare time. I don't baby cars anymore and I need something tough.
I also like the factory V1 wheels but the V2 wheels are a bit bigger and I would think they would have about the same offsets making for a fairly easy swap if you go 5 lug. Plus we already know they clear the V2 calipers if I ever decide to move in that direction.
Somebody somewhere has got to have tried this.....
Shady has it right, aftermarket rim manufacturers make rims to sell not for each individual car. That's why putting Cadillac wheels on a Cadillac makes sense to me but it looks like spacers will be needed.
If my information and math are right, the v2 fronts are 9" wide and have a 51mm offset which would push the inner lip of the wheel inboard on a v1 by roughly 15 or 16mm? Wonder if a 1/4" spacer would be enough here and if so, what size tires are you guys running on a 19 inch wheel?
Again, if my info and math are right, the v2 rears are 9.5" with a 56mm offset which would push the inner lip of the wheel inboard by close to an inch. Searching the forum, it would seem there's about 3/4" to play with in the rear wheel house using stock rim and tires sizes so this is going to be a tight squeeze with just a 1/4" spacer.
