    Sorry d00d, wheels sticking out make it look like a toy car or dragster wannabe.

    I appreciate you pioneering this and I'm not trying to be mean as you've been a member of the community for a long time. It's just this is a peeve of mine. If it was an 11" wheel with 325s, I think it would be perfect.

    Did you say you have a spacer in the back? Could you bring them in?

    I would not have posted it here if I wasn't looking for feedback, both positive and negative. And for the record, I absolutely agree with you. There are no spacers. Its all wheel.

    I plan to have an alignment and add a degree of camber to gain a few mm's and then, if I absolutely have to, have the fenders pulled out several mm's.

    Spacers are like stuffing your pants, hahaha. A reason for custom ordering wheels and spending big $$ is to get the perfect offsets for a nice stance that an off the shelf wheel just can't offer, taking full advantage of the wheel wells.
    the aggressive stance trend isn't for everyone, but it really makes a statement, $$ well spent.

    I'd trade my HRE for something with lower offsets like that!

    Still, kudos for taking this on. I'll be eagerly watching...

    Very nice. What do I need to make these work on my coupe and how much total does this setup cost?

    As soon as my 8th Day brushed aluminum V caliper decals arrive I'll be painting all rotor hats and calipers black.

    I love the wide stance. Looks awesome just the way it is and I bet looks even better in person.

    Unless I'm missing something in the photos the stance looks pretty right to me.

    All you need is a slight fender pull on both sides and it'll look great. The rears look like steamrollers LOL!

    Hello everyone,

    Firstly and most importantly, I would like to thank LV_V for bringing this challenge to us. He has been incredibly patient while we worked out some of the issues that comes with fitting a setup like this. We have all of the "bugs" worked out thanks to LV_V's excellent feedback.

    We are now taking orders for this setup for the CTS-V Coupe. If anyone has any questions you can contact me by phone at 1-888-554-7755 or by email at paul@howeyindustries.com

    Paul
