    I actually like the custom paint on the wheels...nice find! I had those same balloon sts-v tires on mine when I first got my wheels, went down a couple sizes and I think it looks and handles a lot better...good stuff!

    Re: CTS-V to STS-V rims before and after

    Well, sure enough, adjusted the air pressure and the readings didn't change. Last night while on a cruise all the pressures changed to --- . So will be doing the relearn now, though it didn't trigger any TPMS lights. Which is cool because I've found if that's on then you can't enable Competitive Driving Mode.

    Finally cleaned up the rims and absolutely love the silver/black contrast. But the sidewall is hugely annoying... But they're staying for now. Anyone know a good way to sell these CTS-V wheels? ... Not a huge market out there for 6 lug car wheels.

    Agreed... seems like people are always looking for wheels...whether it's for winters, track setup or spare singles.

    Powder coat those things with the money you saved on the purchase price.

    Those would look SICK on a Black V.....I have always liked black faced wheels with another color inset.

    Typically, white or red....with a black face.

    The crowd around here hates more than anything. Don't sweat it. Much more love on LS1Tech.

    The front sidewall is less than stock. The problem is the black paint on the wheels causing no visual separation to the tire.

    I usually like STS-V wheels on CTS-Vs, just not painted like that. And I'd still much prefer widened stockers...
