    Do they stick out beyond the fender? What size tire? No rubbing? If so that's great!

    Not sure I'm on the same sheet with the OP's question. Really, you can't discuss fit without diameter, width, offset and tire size. Does the Coupe and the CTS-V Coupe run the same wheel? My 19X10 +40 CTS-V Coupe wheels with Michelin 285/35 19 pictured below. I measured with a strait edge on the sidewall, 1/2" to the top edge of the finder. The tread is inside the finder. If anything hits it will be 1" - 2" down on the sidewall. I have had no rubbing yet but I know it will sometime. I wish they made this wheel in 19X10 +50 but I have not checked if there is room in the back.

    How about a picture of yours lowered?

    They do look good though and I'm not taking them off. I'm seriously considering flaring the finders. If I were in LA it would not be a problem but Houston doesn't have a lot of shops doing that kind of work. The flare would have to include the rear door.

    So you think it would hit on a road course, with high lateral loading?
    I wonder if more -camber in the rear would alleviate any clearance issues.

    Not sure if this was directed to me but if it was, my car is a 3.6L and will never see a road course. I'm going for the look and flared finders would look cool, wide butt. I have never seen any wheel on a CTS that I like as much as these and thats a first for any OEM wheel. I once (1998) ask an engineer at the Corvette factory if it cost the same to cast those ugly wheels as to do nice ones. Change in 2000 made the wheels acceptable.

    To answer your question, yes, IMHO it would hit and yes -camber would help along with modifying or removing the finder liner. Also, anything to cut down wheel travel, big hard springs.
