Im posting this thread to get some helpful information. If you never put 22's on a Cadillac please stay off my thread. First I actually own a 2006 STS but when I posted questions about this in the STS forum all I got were a bunch of OLD GEEZERS with smart ass comments. I just wanted to get offset and fitment tips from some CTS owners. I was considering a giovanna Martuni but it only comes with a 22x9 width and a 38 offset. Im not sure if this will tuck nicely or not. I know a higher offset with a 8.5 width will work better. I just posted the pics so people could see how this could look on a CTS V. I thought these pics were the best looking Caddys I have ever seen!!

You're likely to get similar comments here. V owners are performance oriented and most wouldn't DREAM of putting "twankie deuces" on our cars.

Why not hit up one of your local wheel stores?

PS the D3 car with the grey wheels looks sick.

the D3 car with gray wheels is probably rocking 22x12's out back + low offsets, stretched tires, and its got coilovers to slam it. To the untrained eye you dont see the ~$10k that went into just the stance!

I dont think STS can take that aggressive of a wheel. Wide and low offsets are what make the concave pronounced.
Hard to find off the shelf wheels like you mention above that will give you that fitment for the exact limitations you listed above.

to each there own. i dont care for that large of a rim, i am not sure what the correct term for it is but its similar to the feeling of ricer. its a performance negative so most wont like it here. if you like it, thats all that matters. there is a wheel expert on here phil howsley on here that i am sure can hook you up with offset and tucking.

And what a gorgeous stance it is. I saw that pic the other night and looked around for so long to find more. I couldn't even see what wheels - look like adv.1's of some sort.

I think those are 21's and not 22's...

Here's some info for you. Don't care about 22s per se but you can work with these numbers. You can tuck a 9" rim in the front with a +35 offset and an overall tire diameter of 27.2" (275 width) with the car lowered 1.4" on Eibachs with about 4" cut off the front springs. The rear offset on a coupe 10" wheel is 43. I think same offset for a 9.5" sedan wheel.

So depending on the tire choice and lowering option you can defintely squeeze something on.

Ordinarily, I would think 22's on this car are too donk-like, but that Coupe actually looks badass with those wheels.
