    Are you able to have 2 or 3 other 160LB + passengers ride in the car with you when it is that low, or will the rear tires hit at all?

    Yeah, I have had the car full with 4 people and trunk full with bags on a 120mile trip, no problems at all. Correct offset wheels do wonders!

    Cool, thanks for the info. Do you know if when the KW V3's were installed if a spring compressor was needed to remove the old springs to reuse the factory hardware?

    I don't think anyone makes camber kits for the V?
    Can the front take a spacer?
    IMO love the orange do the wheel centers in gloss black, super mean look.

    I will do suspension when someone makes an edfc type module to adjust dampening from iPhone or ashtray mounted device.
    One of the few low offset slammed Vs I've seen so far!

    "big Jim why"
    Because it's his ride, just because you think it's low, he might think it's perfect.
    Your ride looks sweet brother, now I wouldn't lower mine that low because I love the big girls, after dinner that baby would scrape every man hole cover and pot hole! My girls are thick

    On dpe website it has your car listed as 20" wheels.. Is the company misrepresenting the car? It seems you know too much about it yourself to be wrong. Please give offsets if you can. Im going 11 in the rear of my v.. And would like to give my shop a reference point to start with in fitment.. I also must ride Hellaflush style... Your v looks great.. But you must be from cali.. Or Miami like me to love it! Go heat!

    21" wheels look stupid on there and totally disproportionate. Car must ride like crap. Did you disable the magnetic ride control for the coilovers. How does that work? I can't imagine well.... just my opinion.

    Could not disagree with you more. 21" is the perfect wheel size for the CTS-V, in my opinion. It's a big car. The stock 19's are too small (and yes, I still have stock 19's... and I think they look ridiculous on my wagon).

    I have the sedan and was wondering if the rims would fit on a 4 door. Those rims look great.
