2008-2013 Cadillac CTS Appearance Mods Discussion, 22 inch rim question in Cadillac CTS Second Generation Forum - 2008-2013; I want to get some 22 inch rims for my CTS but the shop I went to said they will ...
I want to get some 22 inch rims for my CTS but the shop I went to said they will not fit unless some customizing is done to it. For everyone with 22 inch rims, did you have an problems installing the rims and what tires size do you have? Was there any issues with rubbing and/or not fitting right? Can you also post pictures of your non-lowered car with 22 inch rims? Thanks
I have had zero problems, no rubbing at all. Actually it raised the car up about a half inch and I can get out of my driveway without scraping. I am running a 22x9 with a 245/30/22. I called falken and they recommended a 255 though for load issues. A 245 is about 17lbs under which is not a huge issue for me. If I were to do it again I would get the 255's. 22's are the only way to go if you want that look. 20's look WAY to small for me.
I would be a little concerned they said they cant have 22's on the car without modifications. 22's have been many times over. Even lowered, there are no issues if you do everything correctly.
Sorry for the blurry pic..
Dr.Design, did you have anything to do with the car you posted a picture of? I want my car to sit and look exactly like that car. Was wondering if you knew how much of a drop that car has, what offset the rims are and if that car has any driving issues being that low? Thanks for your time.
I see lots of beemers locally that drive around at that ride height but no has done a CTS properly yet with the right stance and wheel combo. I want to be the first
Yes that was one of our cars. That vehicle was lowered with a set of our prototype springs. The rims were from Zenetti for the 07 SEMA Show. I dont know what the offset was on those as they were pre-production wheels. Again this looks is VERY doable without major or even minor modifications.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
OK, thanks. Do you think I would be safe then getting a set of 22x8.5 MHT rims with 245 tires and stock offset and be able to drive it at that ride height? Thats probably a 1.5inch drop front, correct? Thanks.
Yes, that is a relatively safe combo. Are you getting 2-piece wheels?
I'm going to get a set of the MHT Forged line wich I believe is a 3 piece rim??
I guess the question I should be asking you is if I get a 22x8.5 inch rim with the stock offset, do you think I will be able to slam the car as low as the white car and still use it as a daily driver? Sorry for the million questions, don't want to spend $6500 on wheels and tires and get something that doesn't fit! Thanks bud. Did you ever start making those drop springs that are on that white car?
