I am 98% sure that this is a pic of the custom wheel that was made for the "V" in Florida. I am wating on 100% verification but I thought you guys might like to see it. In a polished finish this wheel could almost pass as a factory wheel (Same pattern minus one spoke). The guy who had them made had them powder coated.

Yeah, had a slight malfunction there:rolleyes: . I think I actually like this wheel better than the 505. This wheel looks almost factory. Fully polished I think this would look very good on the "V".

Wheels look good. I agree on the near factory look. Any idea on prices?

That wheel looks awesome. If only it were a 3 piece and you could powdercoat just the centers :(

Had about a 45 minute coversation with John the owner today. They will be posting some polished pics of that wheel and another prototype tomorrow.
I'm still about 95% sure I'll be ordering the 505's by Thursday. Should have the wheels on by the middle of next week. I'll keep everyone posted.

Basically they will be posting up some pics of the polished version of the wheel above and another pic of a different cut wheel. Just got off the phone with John a little while ago and he said it would be tomorrow before they are posted. At this time they are only offering a 8.5x19 for the front and a 10x19 for the rear. The fronts will have about a 1" lip and the backs a 2" lip all backspaced to about 42mm. I have talked to a lot of vendors in my day and John seems to be top notch. Getting on a plane for Mexico:) until Monday in a couple of hours so if you guys want to see pics tomorrow you will have to go to www.ccwheel.com (http://www.ccwheel.com) and go to the forum section. In the wheel fitting forum there is a CTS-V thread started by TNT-V. That's were the pics will be posted. Talk to you guys on Monday.

John indicated that all his wheels are now available in a 6-lug...
I believe that means all these wheels:

$2495.00 for wheels, $220.00 or so for air pressure sensors, and about $1,100.00 for tires. My 505's were $3490.00 shipped with tires and air sensors installed (Bought sensors myself). I hope they are here tomorrow but more than likely it will be Monday. John is awsome to deal with.

I got Bridgestone S0-3 Pole positions. I wanted the Goodyear GS-D3's, but the 275 35 19's are on national back order. Had a set of S-03's on my Lexus and they are okay. Tire specs are 245 40 front, 275 35 rear.
