    Suspension on a cts

    Im going to be purchesing a cts in the next couple of weeks and i was wondering if i were to get the luxury model, and put 20's on it would i have a problem with the tires rubbing, i was just wondering since the luxury model has the auto leveling on it, if that would cause a problem?, any feedback would be great, thanks in advance.

    Okay, I just want to make sure I understand. First, the 1SB Luxury model does not have the Sport Suspension (including the rear leveling) unless it features the PDX Sport Package option. The 1SC Luxury Sport model does have the Sport Package standard.

    Now also keep in mind that the loadleveling suspension in the CTS is not automatic/compressor driven. It's a rear Nivomat (Sachs/Boge) self-leveling shock (internally loadleveling) and it's not *all powerful* in it's loadleveling capability. But it still works.

    The 20" tire size is usually 245/35R20, and on a luxury model without the PDX Sport Package, it will rub with people in back most likely. with a 1SC or PDX package, you should have no problem.

    thanks for the info, i was thinking that it had the compressor like the caddys from the lat 80's, at least thats the last model year that i really seen up close. so i just need to get the sports package to be safe... its really hard to find the cts's with the sports package around here....
