i was just wondering if any one did this, and any modification required and what size front and rear tires did they put on?

The 09V is a 5 lug wheel, while a 2004-2007 is a 6 lug wheel. Not possible without hub replacement something similar.

And another dreamer shot down by the infamous 6 lugs.

Why were they able to go back to a 5 lug with the 09? I know they used the larger 6 hubs because of the weight of the V and considering the loads that were going to be put thru the hubs. Did GM find some magic 5 lug hub to work now?

I don't buy that at all. There are much heavier cars making much more power that have been around forever without incident running 5 bolt wheels.

I hate that they used some oddball bolt pattern/backspacing compared to every other GM vehicle out there.

I should correct myself and saying that I am assuming. Not that I know. It might just be what you just said.

GM used the rest of their engineering salary on the hubs instead of the diff :lol:

No shit, hubs capable of handling 1000hp+, with a diff that can handle 200hp! lol

I think the V 6lug where just run offs for the SRX. It just happened to fit so they used it :) the brakes even bolt right up from one to the other.
