    2012 CTS-V Coupe 21" DPE Wheels KW V3

    Hey guys, had the wheels and the drop on the car for sometime now, never had a chance to share with you guys.

    Running 21" DPE SP5, 21x9 fronts 21x11 rears wrapped in Toyo T1R 255/30/21 and 295/25/21, lowered on KW V3. Blacked out trims, Lambo orange brakes with Brembo stickers.










    I took it for alignment, but they could not really do much, do I need a camber kit, or try another shop? So currently running a negative camber in the front, almost 2degrees, very little in the rear. Currently I am playing around with colors on the brakes and center caps seeing what I like.

    I personally feel a black brake and black center cap would look great with the black grill/vent look you have going.
    Unless, you were wanting to keep the more unique color scheme going with the brakes/caps
    The car looks great with those rims and lowered

    Looks great. I've been thinking about getting some DPE CS5s.V1 in the same size.

    Rides great, very smooth. The damping is adjustable, I put it on a soft setting.

    Wow that looks great, is there any suspension noise with those coil overs?

    I love the wheels, but I think the car is a little too low.

    No way! I want mine that low sooooo bad! My last V had a terrible suspension noise though, I tried to buy coil overs at least a dozen times and could NEVER get a strait answer if they would make noise when slammed like this. If I can get a car this low without making noise I'm all over whatever coil overs he is on!!!

    Never!! When I do track the car I raise it, for cruising around I like it as low as I can for daily driving.
