    Yes please can we get the full description one more time? Wheel manufacturer, diameter, width, offset; tire manufacturer, size and profile. And is that all on stock suspension components? Thanks in advance!

    Okay guys, here we go. CCW 505 wheels

    Front: 19X8.5 255/ 35 Michelin PS2

    Rear: 19X10 295/ 30 Michelin PS2

    Don't know the offsets, you will have to contact John at CCW. No spacers.

    This is the only thing stopping me. Does anyone else w/ this set-up have this problem?

    Nick,

    I don't think the problem is with the new tires and wheels. I've had this problem when I had factory tires and wheels along with when I replaced the wheels and tires before chroming. It doesn't do it all the time and fortunately for me, my car rarely sees 60MPH There are numerous threads about this same problem on other cars.

    Thanks Shane for providing the details. Maybe this should be posted on the FAQ?

    I think you get the award for fattest rubber on stock running gear and fenders!

    Oooops... one more question. What about your pressure sensors? Do the CCW's accomodate stock location or did you band them on? Thanks again.

    As Shane said... definitely not the wheels/tires... wish i knew what was causing this.

    Dreamin,

    Yeah, it's a funny situation. Sometimes I have it, sometimes I don't. Sometimes during braking it will do it, sometimes not. Oh well. I think the powdercoating job I had done on my rotors may be the cause of some of it. As soon as the cross drilled come out for the front I'm going to paint the hats and change them out. I drove a new Infiniti M45 yesterday. Talk about a luxury sedan with some pep. Problem is I would be doing the same "modifications" to it that I've done to the V. My Cadillac now seems more like a "race car" than a luxury sedan now. The new beef on the rear didn't help.
