    Eek! 25 profile just sounds terrifying.

    Re: Please post your aftermarket wheels on your ATS

    I have 245/30/20 tires that have an overall diameter of 25.1 They were supposed to be bigger according to the chart I looked at. Closer to 25.6 or so. Some tires are different I guess depending on brand. The chart could have been wrong. I really don't know why my tires are smaller than the chart says.

    Not counting the fact that they will look way too big on this car IMHO (check the Lexani on page 3 the vossen would look bigger because of their design) they won't work without spacers and some major rolling the problem is not outside which would be real flush at 20mm further out then stock but on the inside which would be 30mm closer to the strut and there is simply not that much space so you would need spacers of at least 10mm which would poke too much

    The thing to realize is that this car does not have a lot of play like for example a first generation BMW E90 so we are limited if you do not want to roll fenders and 9.5 ET35 is about the limit , the good thing however is that the way the fenders are designed they are very easy to roll so if you really like these wheels I would recommend 19x10 ET 38 (you may still need 3-5mm spacers) and an Eastwood fender roller.

    Or if you're really set on the 20s you could get the 5/112 20x10 ET55 with 20mm spacers adapters 5/112 to 5/115 wich would give you final offset of +35 ( you would still need to roll)

    Re: Please post your aftermarket wheels on your ATS

    I run a 20 on most cars I buy. I just like bigger wheels. I am going to get another set of 20s in the spring. I'm looking at TSW willows with the black lip. But I agree the lexanis look really big on that car. My gold ones that people hate here don't look that big. Lexanis almost look like a 22.Tires are real thin looking.

    assuming spacers were not used the lexani rear is probably +42. i really wish someone at vossen would do a test fitment for me.

    How can you assume +42 ? Unless I'm mistaken all Lexani wheels are custom offsets

    Re: Please post your aftermarket wheels on your ATS

    After speaking with my guy this morning about what I'm really looking for combined with my driving habits, I'm pretty sure I've decided to go with 19x8.5 all the way around instead of 20s. I know 20s would really turn heads but 19s just makes the most sense from a pure functionality standpoint.

    If we went 20x8.5" all around, the max sidewall/profile we'd be able/want to do with the tire for THIS CAR is a 30 profile, which is pretty low. Taking into account my love for driving as a whole along with my propensity to "have fun" in my car the 19s just make more sense for me from a pure functionality perspective. It wouldn't be uncommon for me to go up onto Mulholland Drive (twisty mountain road here in LA), throw it into Sport Mode and see how the car handles. Plus we could go with a 35 profile tire on a 19 giving me some more sidewall to work with.

    If I only used this car to get from Point A to Point B, casually cruised around town, and didn't care about having "fun" in the car, then the 20s make sense (with a drop). But I like to have fun in my cars.

    Only problem is the wheel I want is not available in 19s yet and neither are lowering springs for the car. Although, the wheels should be available in the next month or so and with me traveling a bit over the holidays I'm totally cool with waiting. The car is getting dropped regardless in order to make it look just right.

    Anyone got an idea of when lowering springs will be available? I definitely have zero intention of dropping 4 grand for the D3 coilovers.

    u said ur looking to go canyon and u wanna get wheels appropriate for that, id say 18s would b better. tires would b cheaper (19 is most expensive out of the 3 good sizes, 18, 19, 20) and 18 would b much lighter. also, try angeles crest instead. mullholand is allright, but angeles crest is where its at. id be happy to join you, mullholand or angeles. would b fun to drive with another ATS. i go to angeles crest quite often.

    Yeah the tire i want isn't available in 245 yet, it runs pretty tall for a 235/35 though at over 25.5" so should be ok. My other choice was 245/35R19 Proxes 4Plus but they are 25.8" which just seemed too tall.

    Thanks for your feedback. I'm familiar with angeles crest but I always thought it was typically only frequented by moto riders. Was simply referencing Mulholland as an example because while I like canyon here and there, I wouldn't be doing it on a regular basis.

    I totally hear where you're coming from regarding the 18s but, based on my own driving habits, I feel like 19s would provide a nice full wheel well to complement the car while also allowing me to have "fun" whenever I wish (not necessarily canyon but more like "spirited" street/highway driving in general). As for tires, I'm right there with you about 19" pricing, but I should be able to get a nice set at discount through another source so I'm not TOO concerned about that.

    Plus, the wheel I'm dead set on doesn't even come in 18s...

    P.S. - Totally down for a cruise one day! Used to have a Mustang before my ATS and a bunch of us used to go cruising in the LA area.

    I got my Nittos for $23 more per tire than the same one in 18" so the cost wasn't too much different, i actually wanted 18's but got a great deal on the Niche's and their 18's were all close to stock offset and i wanted something wider. If you want me to get you a quote on anything send me a message.
