    2012 CTS Coupe - Eibach Pro Kit / TSW 20x9.5 - 20x10.5 / Toyo 245 - 305

    I am really happy with the Finished look. The Eibach springs were just enough to get the stance and ride well, the TSW 20" wheel offsets could not be more perfect and the Toyo Proxes T1R tires rounded out the package perfectly. I still cant get over the 305/25ZR20 in the back .. they just look mean!

    I am completing a full write up on the Eibach installation and Spec comparison for the OEM wheel and tire combo as compared to the TSW / Toyo Package.

    I have been wanting to lower my coupe as well. I have read many threads on here saying that the back settles lower then the front. Have you experienced that with your's?

    Other then that I love the wheels and colour of your coupe. From the angles the drop looks great!

    Your car looks awesome. Hey man I am creating a site of just cars and their wheel setups with all the specs. Check out www.customoffsets.com. It would be awesome if you could add yours to the gallery. The whole site is just to help people find great fitments like yours!

    I have not noticed a "settling effect" however do take in consideration that the kit lowers the back more than the front to level the car. The observed effect is one that the rear appears lower but the body lines and wheel arches play into that. The measured fender gap would suggest that the advertised drop is right on spec. I did do the installation myself and am meticulous with my installations. With regards to spring and perch alignment, I am scrupulous ensuring proper initial fitment so I am not expecting any issues. Eibach makes a quality product with sound engineering.

    Thanks for the compliments. I will be posting a "How to" step by step spring install with details.

    They are TSW Interlago Rotary Forged 9 (http://www.tsw.com/alloy_wheels_interlagos.php)

    Fronts: 20 x 9.5 (+35mm offset)
    Rears: 20 x 10.5 (+25mm offset)

    As you can see they make the RIGHT offsets for the CTS and make fitting the 305 Rear tire a NON-ISSUE. If you are not familiar with the Rotary forged technology you will be surprised by the weight, or more correctly the lack there of. The rear 20 x 10.5 weighs in just over 25 lbs!
