    Factory wheel upgrade?

    Has anyone out there replaced their original Allante wheels with newer Cadillac wheels? If so, any pics? Mine are a little dingey and tired looking, and I am thinking it would be a cheap aesthetic boost.

    Bill... the CTS wheels look seriously nice on your car, I really like the look! I also thought about those, but finally decided a set of aftermarket 19" DUB Shorlines, with Cadillac center caps.

    Peace,

    Chief

    Chief, a good looking ride. Pains me that my Pearl white did not pan out. I shall own another (a good one ) in my lifetime.

    Don't really need this wheel quickly so just keep me in mind if you find one.

    Man, those aren't Palm trees are they? May 11th and we had frost here in Beaaauuutiful Northeast Ohio.

    Re: Factory wheel upgrade?

    Thank you Bill, most appreciated! Sorry to hear about your Pearl White, it's such a beautiful color. But I am happy that you just happen to have a spare Allante!

    Those palm trees are in the front and the back of my house, they always look so peaceful and definitely a part of SoCal. Today it's 79 degrees and absolutely beautiful here. Our LA and Orange Chapters (Allante Club of America) went up to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library last Sunday and it was 82 degrees; we also had a 16 Allante turn out, so not too bad!

    hi guys,

    newbie here, my dad finally gave me the keys to his 88. I have been lusting after this car for 22 years!!!! Anyway, I purchased some '05 CTS wheels and they fit great, but the center cap won't fit....did you trim down a bolt to make them fit? Will that cause issues down the road?

    thanks, sorry to bring up this old thread

    nevermind, I figured it out myself...the Allante has a 45 offset whereas the CTS has a 38 offset, so if I get an 8mm wheel space...I will have a 46 offset and the wheels will fit like a glove!!!!!

    I was ready to do surgery, but this is a much better option and only $20 off of ebay!!!!



    boooooooo--YAH!

    The wire wheels don't really compliment the styling of the Allante. The CTS wheels are a much better looking option.
