    Here's the dual-drilled 17x7" version. The extra 5 bolt holes really ruins it for me.

    The higher the "window line" side of the car, the worse it looks on the car are the wheels. It is important to catch the thin edge of "transparency" wheels depending on the window line. I think the ideal CTS-V-18-inch STOCK.

    I don't quite get that statement? The 18" v's do look good though. Eventhough I saw a first gen srx today with what looked to be 28's. Looked like a truck coming down the road...people these days..lol

    New system and old system (both linked at the very top of the page). The link from this CTS forum page takes you to the old system, which (as of almost a year ago) was supposedly going to be phased out.
