    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess they have 255/45-18 tires on them, since he quite clearly stated that in his post.
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...

    I have similar STS rims installed on my 07CTS. However installed Conti 245/40-18 to eliminate any rubbing issues. I believe if you go any larger tires it will hit the top knuckle the clearance is minimal. There was another member that had issues.

    I would be more interested in the bolt pattern. 1st generation had 5 x 115 and 2nd generation have 5 x 120 . You really should find out bolt pattern and offset. Should be stamped on inside of rims . Should also tell you what width the rims are. Once you have that info then you will be able to find out if they will fit your car.2003 CTS run with a + 35 to +42 offset.

    Hi my rims are 115 mm 5 lug with an offset of 51 the rims are from an 06 STS. The tires Installed are the max size I can install on my car with these rims without rubbing. Other rims with different offsets may allow you to put on larger and wider tires. Trust me there is hardly any room left between the suspension knuckle and the top of the tire. Discount tire helped me work this out.
