    Will these rims fit?

    I'm a noob when it comes to offsets(i still dont know what it really means) and how to figure them out, and what kind of bolts i need and if anything will rub.

    So if any of you can help that would be awesome!

    My question is will these rims & tires fit my 2006 cts 3.6L without any modification or problems? I have the stock 18inch rims on there now and they are VERY close to the struts(and might even be rubbing, but that's another issue) I could put a penny in between and it would be held there.

    What size tires out of these options would fit best?
    225/30/20 - 235/30/20 - 225/35/20 - 245/35/20 - 255/35/20 - 245/40/20

    Also do you guys think 20" is too big look wise? 22 is ugly and ghetto looking(to me) and im worried 18" will look to small
    Thanks for your guys help!

    We need more info. Is your car lowered? And I may have missed it but it didn't say what the offset was. The offset is the big factor!

    My car is not lowered, i just checked the manufacturer website and they say the offset is 45

    EDIT: oops it looks like they have different option 20,35, or 45 then there is pcd1 and pcd2?

    I would go with the 35 offset with the 225/35/20. Those are a pretty standard size for our cars and even if you lower it you will be fine.

    If you are going with the 225's, then get the 8.5" rim. The tires will "fit" better.

    I wouldn't go higher than 20", that's what I have on mine. As for offset, anything lower than +35 runs the risk of hitting your fender going over a bump or dip in the road, and slicing up your tire(s). I run +45 on the front, and +35 on the rear with no issues.

    Personally I have 20" rims on mine and they look small also so I'm thinking 22's. I don't know what "ghetto" standards are but I think 22's would be a nice tight fit.

    I should take the "ghetto" part out. After looking at more cadillacs i've seen with 22's it can actually look really good. I guess the first few i saw just looked bad.

    I agree with you. .. take "ghetto" out. Some rims are too big but 22's are nice.

    I have a 98 Deville with 22"s... No lifts or cuts...

    Often people say they're proportionate to the car... I'm gonna go one size bigger with my next Tire Purchase tho... Need a ill more cushion on those size rims
    It's murder hitn a pot hole but Still a smooth ride overall

    24"s are pushing the limits bc that's when lifting and cutting takes place

    Hate performing surgery on these cars
