    20" Vossen CV1's on 20X9 all the away around. The Coupe can have them staggered with 20X10.5" in the back. However, on the four door cts the wheels will poke out 3/4" in the rear if you go 10.5

    Tires: ATR SPORT 245/35 ZR 20 95 W






    Here you go man. Thanks!

    Sorry, not offsets between from and rear wheels.

    The wheel offset is the measurement from the center of the width of the wheel to the mounting flange of the wheel. Zero offset means the mounting flange is in the middle of the width of the wheel. A CTS has a high positive offset. Stock 17x8 CTS wheel is +48 mm offset.

    ok sorry about that..i forgot, Vossen told me all of that information when i bought the wheels years ago. Just call the manufacturer and they probably can just look up what model cts you have.

    I actually have 20x11 in the back with no issues and no poking out. On the other hand I have 20x10 in front and it pokes out maybe an 8th of an inch.

    Great man, actually not worried at all about it lasting...its been over a year and it looks the same. There was like 1 tiny chip the size of a pebble in the mesh but just used a dot of touch up paint and it was gone easy.

    I think those Vossen are one of the BEST aftermarket wheels for the CTS ever! Absolutely hot looking wheels! I bought something similar, a 'DUB' wheel and they have been a nightmare! 3 months later and they can't be balanced as every technician wants to put the absurd amount of lead required to balance them behind the spokes to hide it... I had the first set of rims replaced under warranty, and the tire shop has tried 2 complete sets of rubber... my 2012 CTS is AWD, came with 19" wheels on 245/45/19 but I upsized to 255/35/20 - complete shmozzle... I just took them off, put on my OEM wheels - problem solved and rides like glass once again... is my problem the fact I tried to get quality for a lower price? Should I have gone straight for the best?

    Are the factory tire sizes the same at all 4 corners on the AWD sedans? With the coupe they are staggered and you have to get the sizes with in 4 revolutions per kilometer of each other between the front and rear to placate the driveline algorithm.
