    "Instead of you being a douche bag, (I know it's real hard, but try!) Do some research on "offsets" of the coupe rear wheels. Now, this may be harder, take the "offset" of the sedan rears, plus the spacer, and do simple math. It's actually 1st grade math, but I think you can do it. The offset is very very close to the coupe rear wheels. And there is no spacer, no wasted money on spacers. No worrying about longer studs, or hubcentric spacers. It's amazing what one can do with some simple homework and math. And just remember, if you search the forums, I am the first, the one & only to put coupe rears on the front of a sedan. And it works. They stick out a little, but all the under-steer magically vanishes."

    Really?

    Try not to be a douche bag, (I know it’s real hard, but try). The Coupe rear wheels fit on the front of a sedan perfectly fine. No spacer or longer studs required. They bolt right on. Do some simple internet research and you’ll see the coupe rears are 40mm offset. Yes, 40 mm offset, so they do stick out a tad, but they are 10” and they fit up front.

    Now, take your sedan rears, plus your 11mm spacers. Can you do simple math ??? You created a 45mm offset. How much money did you waste on spacers and labor ??? And you only got an extra ½” of width. Do you know the failure rate & tensile strength loading of a stud, with a monster spacer, under enormous side loading. It’s a failure waiting to happen, with your kids in the car. I know, you’re a super genius, and did all the calculations.

    Even better, the 10” wheels up front take all the push out of the car. The car handles amazingly well. And just remember, I am the 1st to put coupe rears on the front of a sedan. The one and only who has done it to date.
    There is a 5mm difference between your setup and mine, and I’m way ahead in saving money, and in handling.

    Guys, as soon as I realized my mistake I edited my original post to say that I did not intend to be in the CTS-V forum and ask that it be removed. I then started this thread in the CTS forum.

    Please comment here: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...-v-wheels.html

    Moderator: Please remove this thread. Thanks
