According to the net the 09 CTS-V has the following wheel dimensions:

19 x 9-inch; forged alloy, 5-lug (front)
19 x 9.5-inch, forged alloy, 5-lug (rear)

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Found a really nice rim made by CCW:

I think these rims would look sick in a black chrome. What do you guys think black rims or just regular chrome? My car is black.

If they weight less than stock than i'm for it. I wonder if you could stretch the rim out by half an inch and fit bigger meats on w/out rolling fenders.

In the 19" it looks like the CCW's are 24lbs. I am having problems finding the weight for the stock rims though.

I read in another thread where d3 is saying they got a 295 tire in the back.

I like the black, but thats just my option. You have to make that choice and either way they will look good. Cecil..........

Not a V, but you get the idea. Keep in mind this is with a 19" wheel. But the same thing can be done with a V. No fender rolling, cutting or trimming was done to this car.
