    Aren't the 2nd gen all 6 lugs ? Other people here would have them if they fit, wouldn't they ? The 2nd gens have some nice wheels.

    Right.

    Only thing fitting our first gen non-V's are 5 x 115 and 5 x 114.3. Offsets vary, but mostly fall into the +30 to +50 range, from what I've seen.

    What size tires are you running? How wide is the rim?

    Thanks, Joe

    I'm in - I got these because they look a lot like the V2 wheels, which I love. They're 19s, though - you can get them in 17", 18", or 19". The model is XXR 518.



    They're available in black, gold, or "machined" (black with the face polished metal) for around $600US a set.

    I just ordered a set of the 9 spoke, OEM 18" sport wheels that went on the 06-07 sport models. Paid $800 for them, great condition, shipping included, plus 4 tires on them.
    They're seem to be the rarest wheel to go on the CTS and I'm siked to receive them.

    Almost went aftermarket (those CV7s are beautiful as are those black Ford OEMs) but I figured many aftermarket wheels are very heavy, sometimes lower quality, or if they're not then they're just really expensive... and I got a great deal on these so I'm happy.

    Anyone got a pic of their CTS with the 18" 9 spoke OEMs? I've seen very few pics of them actually on the CTS.

    Wow, pic from the dead, lol!

    Answered your PMs Joe - forgot to mention the rims are 8.5" wide.

    In that pic I used VHT Nite Shades to tint everything. I have since had to strip all of that off *grumble* and re-did them by cutting clear plastic templates, then tinting the plastic and using 3M tape to stick them on.

    dont waste time with small rims.
    in Canada we slap 20" rims on the Caddys and lower it...then drive in the winter.

    I love the look of 20" wheels but I hate having to watch the road like a hawk for every bump and Ohio pot hole. In the end, I took my 20" wheels off and will keep a look out for a nice set of 18" wheels.
