    The factory offset is 42 I believe. If you go lower, the wheels will stick out further and you run the risk of rubbing on the fenders. If you go higher the wheels will be in further towards the engine and the wheels may rub on the frame when you turn lock to lock. It's a pricey venture to "try" and see if it fits. I used a 35 offset on mine. They stuck out a touch more than factory. But I was fine with that. They look good. If I wouldn't have lowered it.....no problems. But, I dropped it a out 2". So I had to roll the fenders. If you do 20's with a 35-42 offset and just do lowering springs for a 1" drop then all will be fine.

    ----------

    Here is a link to my build, you can see in the last pics the rims on the car at the current ride height. There is shots from front and back also where you can see the offset. This will give you a bit of an idea.

    Dayumm Oxnard!! That's my car color but yours looks like my cars big brother! I like the rear window louvre.. never seen that on a CTS before. I remember those on the back windows of Saab's all the way down like shutters. When my CTS is no longer mostly stock.. I will take the glamour shots!

    Re: 22 inch rims for cts

    I had 22 inch rims on my 05 cts since I got it in 08 235/30/22 by 9 I never had any problems and only replaced the breaks twice. I recently put 24 inch rims on it 245/30/24 by 9 I did not do any mods but take out the front inter wheel we'll splash gaurd. No lift no problems so yes you can definitely put 22 inch rims on it. The car rides just as good as stock. The only problem with the 24s is you can't turn the wheel fully when doing a uturn n it's only about a inch so really no a problem. I think the bigger the rim the better. And about the weight I seen someone they addressed that they were too heavy you can buy a 20 inch rim that weighs more then a 22 it's all about the style NAND brand

    Re: 22 inch rims for cts

    i almost got 22's a couple years ago but decided against it. really the cts can fit them.
    i have 245/35/20 and was on eibach pro kit (hated how the front shocks react with the springs, but loved the springs) and i useto drive the hellou of my car on country unpaved roads no problems.
    ive since switched o all cts-v suspension which rides nicer, no bounce and blowing shocks every year.
