    Will Buy Your 09 CTS V Wheels

    I have the 08 CTS (with the boring 17" OEM wheels), and I'm in love with the 09 CTS-V wheels. If anyone decided to switch out their OEM wheels then I'd love the opportunity to make a competitive offer for them. At this point, finding these wheels has been difficult.

    He had a set of the 19" Polished Wheels for sale, and I don't know if he ever sold them or not.

    Thank you for the recommendation - I have actually been in contact with him. I think there are a few members ahead of me for his wheels though, so I'm still on the market. Willing to make an extremely competitive offer to anyone else interested...

    I'm the guy ahead of you......sorry.

    Last I heard he found scratches on his wheels from when the dealer switched tires. The dealer was going to fix them....last I heard. I assume that is happening and we will hear from him when they are done.

    Haha, that's quite allright - I can appreciate a fellow admirer of those wheels. It's only fair that I wait my turn. Are you also putting them on a CTS? I'd love to see pics when you do.

    Re: Will Buy Your 09 CTS V Wheels

    I was going to use them to mount "cold weather" tires for my V, not necessarily snow tires. I don't run the car in snow, but even in the cold the PS2s are like hockey pucks on ice. If you drive in the winter at all, you need different tires than stock.

    Oh, and had you seen my signature on my post, you would have seen I have an 09 V

    So you own an 09 V and you're buying another set of 09 wheels before little ol' me can have just one beautiful set of angular raised 5-V spoke wheels?! The wheel-lovin' fool in me thinks that's selfish, but you were here first so what can I say... Hope it's not too long before another set comes my way - I'm going through several sources so I'm optimistic.

    Re: Will Buy Your 09 CTS V Wheels

    I'll chime in with a little info,
    Service department said my wheels are ready. BUT he said they didn't get a full re-finish . Some nonesense about pre-existing scratches and the labor involved in the complete re-work. This is the complete opposite of the agreement/impression he gave me when I dropped them off.
    I'm planning a trip by tomorrow, I'm not optimistic.

    GM polished aluminum wheels are clearcoated, just like your paint. The scratches should come out with a wet sand and buff, and possibly a new application of clear. Unless they gouged the wheels that is, in which case they need professional refinishing.

    First come, first served bro. Do you know how much hassle it is each year to unmount, remount, unmount remount winter/summer tires? Too much hassle.

    Thanks Tony. I'm sure the wheel guy they out-source to has prolly made the wheels look really good. It was hard to tell if some of the scratches were only clearcoat deep. It's amazing what a good detail guy can do.
    My real beef is a change of tone from the service writer. He made it clear when it happened he would take care of me. It gave me confidence in the whole dealership, I came away feeling very positive about the whole deal. Today's conversation and excuses made me wary, I don't want to feel that way about my Caddy service. I'm sure it will all work out though.

    For every crappy vehicle service you get from one dealer there will be another dealer willing to go the extra mile. Especially in these rough times.

    No I understand what you're saying - of course, you could always get a nice set of aftermarket 18s, maybe some 17s...something more suitable for winter driving. that way you can leave the actual 19" summer tires to us crazy fools who use them for...summer tires.
