How do you think these would work on my 06 STS?

I feel like they are Caddi's attempt at a BMW style wheel.

Anyone ever buy rims off amazon? Or more specifically "EUROTECH"?

Ah thanks for the sizing clarification, what model caddy do those wheels normally go on?

New CTS is 5x120 and so was the XLR.

I haven't found a wheel I like any better than OEM

I have the 9 spokes too I like them but dented one on a pot hole. Dealer cost is 1200 so thinking of stepping up to 19".

Go out to tire rack. They have a very good tool to show you differect wheels on your car and your color. I just started but going to get rid of the stock rivet wheels soon.

If you want to sell the rivet wheels please let me know.

Yeah i seen the one rim on ebay. I dont know though the pic is bad and to be honest dont want to buy one new wheel then my other 3 have normal wear. Plus the rivets over time build up corrosion and collect brake dust which are impossible to clean and only noticeable up close but it still bothers me. So probably just get new 19" nothing flashy because i want to keep them on all year or too big because dont want to compromise ride and those bigger rims will be more likely to dent in my pot hole infested area.
These are what im probably going to go with.

The back one looks a lil goofy because the car is at an angle and i tried to keep them the same size as the old rim because i dont think you will be able to visually notice too much difference between stock 18 and the aftermarket 19's but i could be wrong. The damn tires i want dont fit the backs though kinda pissed. Trying to get 255/40zr19 michellin pilot sport A/S but the rims are only 8" wide and the specs on the tires say rim width should be 8.5-10

Check the junkyard
I had the same issue and bought one from a junkyard for about $250
