Just picked up the car today. Traded off my 2005 F-250 Harley Edition for this:

Better pictures to come. Darn weather and the rain. Soon to have some new rims, tint and shifter. What was Cadillac thinking with the semi truck throws? :rant2:

I am not sure yet. I want Black 19" but I have just started looking.

Any good tips?

A lot of guys are rolling on CCWs. There is a member on here (type911, i believe), he sells True Forged rims. There was recently a group that inspired a company to make some Rota wheels that fit our cars.

When looking for rims for the V just have to make sure that you are looking ones that have our unique 6 bolt pattern. That usually means at minimum $100 more a rim compared to a 5 bolter.

Good luck and as always, post pics.

welcome.

I also have been starting my search for a set of rims... its kinda slim pickings and/or expensive pickings.

Welcome!

Be prepared to be on a first name basis with your UPS/DHL/FED EX driver. :histeric:

The V is a hoot.

:thumbsup: Already am. I had a 2003 Cobra, before I had the truck.

Needless to say. I saw him about every week.
