    Just FYI, they are not oem V wheels then. Oem ones are 19 in diameter. But there plenty of threads on here for people who have 20s so dig a little bit and you should find your answer

    That's what I was dicking around with. Found these that fit the OP's description.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/20inch-Cadil...c5315f&vxp=mtr

    But the bore size is too small and the bolt pattern is off too.

    Cts is 5x120 and 70.something bore. That listing shows 5x112 and 67 bore.


    So I hope he didn't buy these or the listing is wrong

    I didn't even read the specs. Lol

    They look legit. Hope the text is wrong. I'd buy those. I really like the chrome 18s v style. But I'm broke.

    You should jack up the car on jack stands and test fit before buying tires to make sure

    Re: base cts w/ V wheels....

    ...yeah, definitely jack up the car and test fit them CAREFULLY before mounting them to tires b/c the seller will not take back a mounted wheel...most wheel companies will not. And the knock off wheels are considerably cheaper b/c they are not made of the same material as OEM or even some after market wheel manufacturers. You will find the knock-offs bend much easier so avoid pot holes at all costs and breaks/separations in the road. Good tires (tires with a strong sidewall) will help you avoid bending them as well.

    yeah no doubt.. made a few phone calls and 245/35 was suggested for front wheels and 275/30s for the rears..said theyd be perfect fits.

    You are correct about the bolt pattern. The hub size on a 2009-2013 CTS-V is 67.1 mm. I have three sets of wheels and two sets of hubcentric rings.
