    the V guys are the one's who are having issues with hitting the control arms because they are extending their factory wheels to 18x10 and trying to throw extra wide tires (285/295/305) on them. so they are having to buy new control arms that are specifically built to resolve that issue. as far as recommendations go for tire size, i already suggested some in a few post earlier in this thread

    you go with what you feel comfortable with. i am just trying to let you know that you have way more options than what some clowns at a wheel and tire shop are trying to tell you. i am just giving you my personal experiences because i have had multiple rim setups on my CTS

    Re: Wheel Fitment

    This is to anyone who is wondering what size tires you need to run if you plan on slamming your CTS on 20"s. I run a staggered set up of 225/35/20s on a 20x8.5 in the front and 245/35/20s on a 20x10 in the back. The back tire is slightly stretched, but it gives you enough clearance to ride with 4 people in the car without rubbing. Just a side note, if you plan on slamming anything you haft to roll/shave your fenders. There really isn't any other alternative that will give you the peace of mind you want with your tires/fenders.

    Re: Wheel Fitment

    I finally made the switch to 20".
    Here is the setup on my 07 3.6L Performance / Appearance Pkg

    20 x 8.5 on all corners
    Acilies ATR Sport 245/35/20

    Verdict:
    No rubbing
    No noticeable difference in ride comfort (my FE5 suspension was already very stiff, so maybe I'm accustom to stiff suspension feel)
    Slower acceleration off the line (can't break away the rear tires anymore )

    Re: Wheel Fitment

    its crazy that 3mm will make a difference. im trying to fit 22's but the ones i tried on were 8.5" rim with +38 offset 245/30 tires and they hit the two pushpins on the fender liner to the bumper.for 38 offset i think you need an 8" rim or 235/30 tires to stretch the tires but then youll have even less tire
    someone on here said that 40 offset is what you need
    Fiero and Fiero like this.
