    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    Just put 20's on my new ats. Looks bad ass and the ride is great. Went with 245/30/r20. I'll be adding the D3 body kit and pfadt parts in the near future. Would look better with a slight lowering kit to fill the bit of gap but still looks amazing.

    I also went with 245/30/20. Do you get any rubbing. Looks good. I really like the 20s on the ats. People dont like it on here but I do.they say they are to big .whatever. people stop me everyday. 1 guy yesterday followed me just to look at the car. Good for you man. Looks good. Keep Rollin. And I'm the most hated here. Look at my infractions.:-D.UOTE=turbo_ats;11194225]Just put 20's on my new ats. Looks bad ass and the ride is great. Went with 245/30/r20.

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    Thanks man. No rubbing at all. I got the correct offset so the wheels don't stick out. Yeah I like the 20's also. 19's would look good but anything smaller looks funny to me. The car suits 20's. Everybody's different though I guess and unfortunately some of those who don't share the same taste like to run their mouths instead of keeping their opinions to themselves. I plan on doing more to it. I want more power for sure but a subtle body kit and a bit of a lowering kit with some power upgrades would make it perfect.

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    what is the offset of those rims? And mine only stick out a half an inch. But I made something out of nothing with my rims being old. I need to sell some sets of rims before I buy new ones. I even have a set from my 745li that are brand new with nitto tires. But I want to look at different off sets to see what I want to go with after winter. Along with other things. I just put leds on last weekend.they look pretty good. Luxury models needs more light up front. But hey like the ride. Hope you don't keep them on through winter. I'm sure its right around the corner for you.e i[. QUOTE=turbo_ats;11197169]Thanks man. No rubbing at all. I got the correct offset so the wheels don't stick out.

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    Thanks, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I still have the factory wheels and tires that I will be swapping over soon because there will be snow on the roads pretty soon for sure. I have a silverado I drive also so I use that most of the winter. The wheels I went with for the ATS are Niche M-137. http://www.mhtwheels.com/mht-luxury-...el.cfm?id=9314 I can't remember the offset but the shop I got them from here made sure that they were correct so there wouldn't be any rubbing or sticking out. I plan on swapping my headlights out to the LED ones later. I'm not sure why Cadillac didn't just make them all that way. Because I wanted a 6 speed manual I had to sacrifice the AWD and the LED lights as they were not available with the Manual Transmission. I'm not a fan of sport shift automatic. I prefer to shift myself in a car like that. It makes you feel more connected to the car and adds some fun to driving.

    Looks good man! I'm getting anxious about purchasing some wheels myself. I've been looking at few different brands waiting for the correct bolt pattern and offsets to be offered. I want to keep them staggered so I may have to stick with 19s, not sure. Also I want the concave look. It is good to see more examples like yours though. I really did not think 20s would fit. My ATS looks like it sits lower than most others. Maybe it is just me. Again, looking good!

    Mine with 20's raised the car maybe 2 inches or less. Looks like his did the same. But like he said the ride is really good. I thought I would feel alot more with 30 series tires but the car is really light so it doesnt mess with the ride. Kinda like on rails now. I like the feel isntead of the 17 inch donuts on. I like 19's as well but hard to get tires. If you do most times an arm an a leg for a tire. With no spare in the trunk sucks. Unless you are going with run flats again.

    Thanks. It probably raised it no more than a 1/2". not noticeable

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    Really? I see and feel a big difference when I swap. Different feel getting in the car. Seems higher but I never measured.

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    I put the stock wheel next to my new one and there was about a 1/2" difference. It may be your tire size that made the difference. Mine are 245/30/r20

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    I have the same tire size as you. IvI've had mine on for a couple jnths now though. I could be mistaken. But everyone says the car is a little higher and it looks it to me. But there is still room for a drop anyway. The gap isn't that much but I have went ove big bumps and no bottom out. Not a lot of trwve comared to most cars when compressed. They will be coming off in a couple days. Getting cold. I don't want to get stuck swapping in the snow. 2 years now we had early snow storms. Ill be driving my wrangler but still I like to take it out for dinner and such on the weekend's you know.

    Just curious, is there a chance that the models with MRC sit lower than the rest? I really don't see much of a gap in the wheel wells. Especially in the rear. Going to look at some 19s and 20 inch wheels next weekend.

    Re: 20's on ATS. Gap diffrence

    Maybe. I think he has a luxury like mine. The gap is small with 20's. I haven't seen any one with 20's on a performance model. Or even premium. Is there anyone out there with that set up? If so let us know. Or am I wrong on just those models having the MRC?

    I have a Turbo RWD Performance and have been considering 20s so long as it doesn't look ridiculous...

    There are a couple people with them on here. To me they fit the car. Others don't think so. All depends on what you like. I the 20's on mine. I'll get different 20's in the spring. I have to get rid of a brand new pair of 5x120 20inch first I had on my 745li.
