    IMHO D3 has been more than kind in trying to help out on generic questions not directly related to their product. If/when I purchase exhaust or intake options they will be first on my list. They are also a forum sponsor.
    All it takes is a couple people who have wheels to post the offset they have and than it's no big secret. Go on any other forum and I can damn near gurantee someone will tell you the offset to fit that car. Search the corvette forum for any gen and you'll find out within minutes.

    I also agree that D3 has helped and ton and developed lots of exciting parts but they should be afraid to hide their technical data. I understand there are lots of pirates out there who copy others but like I said once the info is out, everyone and anyone can find it. How will D3's sales guys know if they are selling you the correct part if only the engineers have the correct info. His answer was a cop out.

    If it is so easy to get, then provide the information to the forum. I'm getting tired of you being so secretive.

    I'm glad you have nothing else to do besides provoke people. Get a life.

    Re: Nice 20" Staggered Wheel Setup - need your opinion

    Hello,
    Thank you for the comments. Although providing everyone with the offsets would be helpful, it typically isnít required if someone is interested in buying our wheels. Unfortunately we have had "situations" in the past that has made us rather reluctant to provide too much information. Thatís the reason we post images of the wheels on the car. Hopefully you will notice that they are a nice tight fit. Providing you with the offset measurements isnít going to show you that. We are more than happy to help educate the forum members, but giving out our data shouldnít be expected of us.

    Sorry if some of you donít agree, but we canít pay our engineers and technicians to gather this data just to give it away for free on the internet. We just want to assure all of you that if you purchase wheels through D3, they will be correct the first time and you will not have any fitment issues, guaranteed! If the wheel company you are dealing with cannot guarantee that, then you might want to look somewhere else for your wheels. Please let us know if there are any questions.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Design

    I have 2 more people to search. If I find any info from the other 2, I'll post it up.

    There is no difference. We (D3 Cadillac) just will not post that information. If someone buys wheels from us and wants to post the information, then they are free to do so. There are a lot of companies that will "borrow" offset measurements based on other companies research not knowing why the measurement was the way it was. If you want to run big brakes at a later date (i.e. D3 Big Brake Kit or the 09 CTSV Big Brake System) we have all the measurements for it.

    Sorry if you guys think we are dancing around the question....

    Thanks,
