    Rims.

    Just got myself a new cts coupe.

    Looking to get some rims on it... Want to use the same tires since there brand spanking new still, ha.

    as of now i got the cts in silver, tints, and looking for black rims.

    i got 18" wheels.. and i know nothing about the spacers or whatever else i need to know. Can someone help me?? ha.


    I was looking at Drag dr-37 rims. any suggestions would be amazing. =].

    Those are cooll..but they probably won't be that much of an overall upgrade from stock if you keep them as 18's

    my suggestion is to go bigger on wheels and keep your others for back up/spare...or just sale them.

    Coupes can have deeper wheels than the sedan, so I'd suggest a concave rim.(which are extremely popular right now)
    you should try researching "concave rims cts coupe" in google image search.

    aftermarket 18's can looks really small on the coupe.


    http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ur-wheels.html this post has a bunch of us posting wheels also...
    most are 20's and 21's

    Remember that the coupe wheels are staggered (slightly wider in back). I had a tough time finding an 18" staggered set that retained the exact same specs as the OEM. I ended up going with Lorenzo WL 28s.



    Here they are on the car...

    Go to Discount Tire's website. They have a feature where you can see the rims on your car and color.
