Here are a few pictures of my CTS-V Coupe with Fikse Wheels and new Michelin pilot super sport tires. Front wheels are 19" x 9.5" with 275/35 tires and rears are 19" x 11" with 325/30 tires. Car is not lowered yet but still looks pretty good.

Car looks awesome! Something about the back end of the coupe that really benefits from the 305+ tires. I bet it will look even better once its lowered.

That looks really good. If you don't mind me asking where did you get them and how much were the wheels?

I got the wheels directly from Fikse Wheels, www.fikse.com/ they are the Profil 10s style. Very high quality wheels at about $1k each.

You guys aren't kidding about the Super Sports having a lot more rim protection.

I was going to scold you on the narrow rim to tire ratio, but those are fine. Just looks bulbuous...

A little bulbuous but overall a great improvement.

Bulbous bouffant all the way! I love the way those 325s look under a V!!!

Very Nice!

Profil 10s are awesome. I had the same wheels on my recently sold GT500. I have the older style FM5 wheels on my Z06. They are light, look great, and much more affordable than HRE's and the like.

Great choice!

Yeah, I have Fikse Mark 5's on my Z06, and had the FM5 on my 93 ZR-1. Fikse makes great wheels and I prefer them over HRE's.

Can you give some feedback on how long the wheels took to build, from the time they were ordered? I've had duration issues with them in the past, hope they have things turned around now.

I originally order 20" wheels and after about 6 months they told me that the 20" tooling was or back order, and didn't know when they could make them. They said 19" would be no problem and I would receive in about 4 weeks, it took 5. They seem to be working on problems they've had for the past 2 years. As I'm sure you know Fikse makes only custom wheels as ordered and don't keep wheel in stock. :hmm:

I honestly think it looks perfect. Love the wide stance in the back, and I think it looks great not being lowered.

Does anyone know if this combo (with different rear wheel offset, of course) would fit on a sedan?
