With the weather warming up I am getting ready to throw the PS2s back on. Tirerack and others still not showing much for wheel options. I would like to get an extra set so as not to keep pulling tires off an on OE rims.

Anyone know of any? (I know about Forgeline but I missed that sale)

I'm looking for the same thing. I'm looking for new wheels to go with summer rubber. We've had nice weather here in Wisconsin and I want to leave the Blizzak's on the OEM wheels.

Let's see...
360 Forged, HRE, D2 Forged, modular-concepts, COR, CCW....

Just search for "forged wheels" on the internet. Lots of options. To get it right, it needs to be a quality manufacturer and they are going to custom make them for your application. Wheels definitely will not be cheap on this car to fit the brakes and have them fit and look right.

Ordered mine yesterday, and should have them in approx 3 - 4 weeks.

Spill it Mark, whatcha gettin'?


If you guys aren't in a real big hurry, you might keep an eye out over at the Lat-G forums. Lot's of vendors post there, offering more wheels than you can pick from. They specialize in getting the backspacing and big-brake clearance. Custom finishes, you name it. I didn't see an active sale posted today, but one of the shops almost always has one going.

Don't want to spill the beans quite yest, but if it comesout how I'm anticipating, it should be pretty sick...
20 x 9 and 20 x 11, should have a 2 and 3 inch lip respectively.

Check out this thread... that's my Z and if it comes out that good, I'll be ecstatic.

I don't know if these will fit a CTS, or even who makes them, but I absolutely love the wheels on this Brabham racing M3:

20x11 will be too wide. Think 10.5 is the biggest you can go.

It might be possible to modify the inner liner slightly, it is veeery close with my new Forgelines. Or just go ahead and mini tub it! Better yet, skateboard that beotch!
Either way, can't wait to see what Mark comes up with.
