    18" RIMs CTS

    Hi Guys and greeting from Sunny London,(NOT) it has been raining here for almost two weeks. So my CTS has not seen the light of day much, tucked up in her garage.

    Anyway to the point, I think the one thing that lets down my car is the 17" Rims don't get me wrong nice looking wheels but I think 18" rims would make her look a bit more beefy, I know some of your guys like to keep your CTS in standard trim, and I too like it standard and for me 18" is big enough . To my surprise the is a site here with loads of styles for CTS rims , Is the CTS offset the same as the BMW 5, at 35/45, below is a link to the wheel which i am thinking of, not too flashy a simple Five spoke.

    Well at least you don't have to shovel rain,haha. Some places are still getting snow.

    Here is a pic of mine with stock 18's, one of the best looking wheels for the CTS.

    Very nice, all I would like to do to my CTS is very similar, 18" rims, do the same rear spoiler, and I have a V style grill , once UK customs let it go.

    Best part is, it came this way, all factory stock.
    I'm not really a big fan of the V grille.

    Those are nice,jc, but I still like my 12 spokes best. At least OP is getting some ideas, which is good.
    Let's see some more,Folks.

    A chance to show off the wheels?

    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.

    Now that’s a tasty looking motor, looks a bit of a beast, like the tints. I said I was going to keep mine standard bar the 18”rims ,V style grill, rear spoiler, and now thinking of tints. Bar that standard.

    Hi what do you think of this Rim, seen them in 19" cheaper then the 18", 5 spoke, that i was thinking of.

    I like em... but that's just my opinion. I'm a big fan of the split-spoke thing, I think they look good on these cars.
