    I will take a few and post them. Looking at the car, you really don't even notice the 12mm offset on the front. If I go 5 on the rear, that leave 7mm. I'm not so sure that fine a difference is noticeable without a tape measure.

    I am considering two more hubs and a set of studs though, just in case.... let's see how the budget holds out!

    Just scored a set of take offs V Rotors and Calipers for my 3.6 Wagon. I'm having the Calipers painted now. (Also installing a Procharger as well)

    So how did you make out? Still loving my '11 Coupe with the conversion. Stops like a champ.

    Re: [DIY] Install CTS-V Brembo Brakes on CTS (Part 1, GETTING STARTED)

    Don't mean to bring an old thread back to life but I really want bigger brakes on my 08 CTS. My question is if I use Camaro SS wheels would I still need spacers and longer wheel studs to make the brakes clear the wheels?

    I have all my parts. The only thing I need is to figure out the offset of the wheels I need to get. MiNe will not fit. Any ideas of offset to clear the calipers ?

    Re: [DIY] Install CTS-V Brembo Brakes on CTS (Part 1, GETTING STARTED)

    It's not the offset you have to worry about, it's the center pad height/spoke configuration needed to clear the caliper.
    Just check the fitment guide on aftermarket wheels for fitment on a CTS-V. Seems like only about 1/3 of the wheels out there actually fit without a spacer.

    As for the Camaro SS wheels, I can't help you there as the SS did not have the 6 piston Brembos, only the ZL1 had those along with different wheels.
