    Nice 20" Staggered Wheel Setup - need your opinion

    Wow - today was a good day, I went to a fantastic car show and won a raffle for a serious discount on a set of DPE Engineering Wheels. They had a vairety of Porsche and BMW's on display showing off their wheels. DPE makes some very nice 2 and 3 piece wheels for many cars and can build to any offset including the 08 CTS. I assume that I will need a 120 bolt pattern with a 34 offset...

    I am planning to go with a 20 inch wheel with a 10" rear (provides a 4 inch rear lip) with an 8 or 8.5 in the front.

    Here are the two choices that I would love your feedback on. It would be great to try and PhotoShop these onto a Thunder Grey CTS if any of you are pros?

    OPTION #1
    2-Piece
    Model# R07S










    OPTION #2
    3-Piece
    Model# S10










    Which ones do you think will look best on an 08 CTS?

    WoW! Congrats on the win! I think the second set on the black 3 series look great. I'm not great with photoshop so you'll want to wait for someone else to do it If no one does, just post your rides pic and I'll be happy to give it a go.

    Cheers

    Thanks Hemo....Yeah I was pleasantly surprised! It is so hard to choose wheels without seeing them on the CTS itself .

    You'll need a 40mm offset for 10" wheels. I like the twin 7 spokes.

    40mm offset?? Are you sure? The people that I have spoken with all tell me 34mm offset. Does anyone have further thoughts on this?

    I also agree that the seven spoke looks better on the cts. I went with a similar style as well. Nice choice!

    Great chop, but the proportions are off. They look like 22-24 inch rims!

    Let's apply some pressure, I have had multiple PMs from members who want to order staggered wheel setups with me. Can you PM me your info and I will give you a call?

    Also, can anyone confirm what offset I need so I can maximize my rear lip w/o rubbing?
