    slowdriver,

    Thanks for the information but those wheels most likely won't fit. You can't just go by the bolt pattern. You must look at offsets and hubcentricity for proper fitment. For 8" wheel widths we are looking for offsets of about ET 42. We have odd ball size wheels like hood indicated in post #2, that requires sticking to OEM ATS wheels or custom wheels. Tirerack has some available, but most of them are ugly and not much to choose from.

    This drives me nuts. Why did they choose an odd bolt pattern? Make it so European owners can easily pop their custom wheels off and fit them on the ATS. That's how you take their market share.

    A word of warning. Without knowing the offsets on rims made for other cars you run the risk of the fronts hitting your brake calipers if you have the Brembos. The hub diameter also comes into play. You may need to get hub centric rings to avoid high speed wobble.

    Re: ATS aftermarket wheels and sizing help.

    I'm gonna get shot for this on this forum I'm sure but....

    114.7 bolt pattern is extremely popular, and shouldn't cause issue

    Its actually 114.3 and no its not a good idea to ever use these on a 115 car unless you use an adapter.

    Your right I had it backwards, it's .7mm difference.

    .7mm is small, like pencil lead small. In fact I'd be willing to bet most wheels are the same, just depends on if they started with standard measurement and converted to metric, or they started with metric in the first place.

    Either way any mod you do is at your own risk, but I have done it, and using hub centric spacers places the load of the wheel where it belongs and not on the lugs themselves.

    I liked when the CTS-V had 6-bolt pattern. No ghetto plus sizing.

    Can I ask how much is to replace all the chrome trims (such as the grille) front and back with your black pieces?

    All I can find is 19" and up wheels. Don't you have any lightweight 18" wheels? Don't want to have to replace those larger tires.

    TSW has a ton of wheels available in the correct bolt pattern for the ATS. It sounds stupid, but you have to look them up as a 2006 Cadillac DTS, but all of the fitments are correct.

    Re: ATS aftermarket wheels and sizing help.

    a question on aftermarket wheels :

    tire pressure sensors (TPMS), is it OK to just ignore them? (if I only use the aftermarket wheels for weekend fun driving)

    I'm leasing the car, will this (using wheels without tire pressure sensor) have any report on onstar, and will that be reported to bank/dealer?
    don't want bother getting a set of TPMS and a trigger to program/reset them while I do need another set of wheels with limited budget
