(RJP) 225/35ZR19 front and 225/30ZR19 rear, Y-rated, summer performance tires, LPO
That has to be a typo. Overall wheel/tire diameter in the back is...smaller???!!!
Those 19's will ride like a tank.Quote:

It is. On the caddy site it even lists the premium with 225s in the rear, way wrong.Quote:

Now it looks as though 19" wheels will be available from the factory? Stylistically, I have felt that the ATS has looked a little "under-tired" even with the 18" wheels, but I hope that the larger wheels won't compromise the ATS's excellent dynamics.
My reading of the above post suggests to me that the TSQ package refers to interior accent lighting and not to the exterior LED accents that are so cool looking. Also the TSQ package is apparently standard on all 2013 ATS trim levels. This would also exclude the exterior LED accents which we know are not included on the base level ATS. Still unclear is exactly what dropping TSQ really means. Perhaps the designation was dropped because it is standard on all trim levels? Or perhaps they are slightly changing the interior lighting?
Where is the 8-speed auto? Damn! Are they going to make we wait another year? I guess the Aisin transmissions are too expensive and they are waiting for the GM-sourced one after all? I can't believe they got rid of the Crystal Red. That's the color they used in nearly all of the ads. Not to mention, it's by far my favorite color!
Crystal Red has been around for a long time, albeit only a year on the ATS. Maybe Cadillac decided it was time to retire it. It was starting to seem pretty overused in all the Cadillac promotional materials (IMO).
I agree that the red was probably overused in the ads.
Has anybody seen the new red in person? The rep at the Austin auto show said it had a lot of orange in it, which I'm not sure I would like.
