You can get staggered 19" wheels (19x8F 19x9R) on the ATS regardless of which package you choose. Except 19" are not available on any AWD ATS Model (see page 9 in PDF below). That means you could buy a standard model or any RWD model ATS and still get the 19" Wheels.

Still deciding on which model I want but the 2.0T Standard 6spd Manual with Sunroof and 19x8F 19x9R is sounding really good to me and my wallet!

For $4k, you can some nice rims. Sorry I just don't see the value.

Wow I did not realize they were that expensive. They look nice but not worth 4k.

Take it from someone who had a blowout of a 19 in on a WV Turnpike - They are hard to find a replacement. A nightmare of a story - and OnStar was on the moon and NOOOOO help at all.

Need taller tires. BMW learned it the hard way, the new 3 series has taller tires.

If these are LPO wheels,caddy needs to get more sidewall on them.
I've got 245/35-19s on the front of my GTO and wish that I still had my 245/40-18s.

There was a red ATS 2.0T with these wheels at the NAIAS and I saw it. It was HOT!!!

Those bigger wheels do look good, but boy do they make tire replacement an expensive proposition!

The Morello Red Carbon fiber interior pieces are over $1K. Hope that is actual C-F and not peel and stick.

I think the Cadillac tires are run flats and will not leave you stranded but you are right the 19" inch wheels cost way to much.

For $4k I can get some nice wheels along with a nice set of Pirelli tires.

I had 19's on my 2010 Mustang and went down to 18's. Tires were a PITA to find and when you did, they were very expensive.

However, these Cadillac wheels are very nice.

Wonder what the suede (hope its really alcantera) steering wheel will cost. Or what any of the accessories will cost at a discount GM dealer parts (if accessories are even sold by parts departments). There was a GMC Buick dealer in the midwest that sold GM parts for dirt cheap, some not much more than 50% MSRP. It dried up when the guy who created the department retired and the General Manager closed it down. I know of a Ford dealer like that now (Tousley). Sure would like to find a GM dealer like that again now that I'll be driving a GM product for the 1st time since the late '90s.

Wow, this is the EXACT ATS I was looking at buying, 2.0T manual, black, manual, sunroof with 19s. If you get this car let us know what you think!

Try gmpartsdirect.com. They have a nice discount. Just bought a new T-B to have ported/polished for the turbo and a Caddy rear wing through them.

You'll also need the tires for the rims. So... easily double the price.

When i looked into mine, the MSRP that the dealer had was close to $6k.

So is it even worth it to go with 19s on this car or are you better off sticking with 18s max?

mikesul

The 18" will always handle better. The 19" are more for show.

I'm thinking the ride quality is going to take a big step backwards. The issue is that the ats has. 25" tall tires.

roll it into your deal, you pay a percentage of it the rest is residualized, and its covered under your 4/50,000 bumper to bumper

I read that these wheels are not compatible with AWD ATS. I'd assume that is because of the staggered width and offsets. Do you suppose if you bought all 4 wheels of the same type (ie:, all 4 wheels in 19" x 8 or all 4 wheels in 19" x 9" it would be OK to use them in that config on an AWD ATS? I haven't been able to find the data to compare them completely to the 18" wheel that is compatible with AWD.

You can run these wheels with no issues on your AWD offset is fine , what you need to make sure is to keep the your front to back diameters as close as possible (225F 255R) to keep ride quality on 19s the best thing you can do is get rid of the run flats first second is to upsize your tires 235F 265R

That being said a staggered setup is for show only and you'll have better handling keeping all rim same size , the best thing you could do is to get 4 19x8s and put some 235/35/19s all around

and by the way they're now at $395 each with free shipping at http://gmpartscenter.net

Thanks for the info Jakb. I expected what you said to be likely but just haven't had any luck getting a good answer. I'd want to keep all 4 corners the same anyway. Have you tried this setup on an AWD ATS, or know of someone who has?

Jakb
10-27-13, 09:35 AM
I'm new to the ATS world as I just got my car (RWD,Turbo) this week , however I have had and still have various AWD vehicles From BMW, Subaru and AUdi and have ran everything from square (4 equal corners) 16s in winter on the Audi to staggered 19s with aggressive offset on my 2 335xi

My Plan for the ATS is 215/50/17 Michelin X-Ice on the OEM rims in winter and 245/40/18 Non Runflats on 18x8.5 or 18X9 rims for summer

Where are they 4k? They are no more than $400 a wheel everywhere I've found them....so more like $2400 for a factory warrantied wheel sounds pretty good. Assuming there a cast forged, that's pretty average. And like that you can get staggered, and 19....20 is too big, 18 too small in my opinion...rear offset is pretty decent as well.

I'm currently working on a deal for a 14 ATS AWD Performance in Tri-black Diamond with red morello interior and would love to put a set of the 19's in black gloss on it.

Does anybody have any info as to why gm is stating that they aren't compatible with the AWD? Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated. My dealer is currently looking into it but I'd figure I'd post the question here.

Thanks all.

Edit: a letter

Cadillac is being probably being overly cautious and are not recommending them because they are staggered (I don't blame them when you read some of the .... complaints I see on this forum )

Running staggered is not a problem as long as you keep the overall diameter as close as possible and they should be able to order them anyway if you really want them or at worst order 4 fronts
or if they really don't want to just order them online

Edit: a letter Because they are designed as a staggered set-up, which in time would put stress on differential and transfer case. As mentioned, 4 fronts would work, but almost all AWD cars must have 4 equal corners.

Got mine from Luke, was good price, just don't forget if you get black u will need center caps, (aren't cheap through dealer) and tires recommended are a 225/35-19 & 255/30-19. There aren't a lot of offerings in rear size. I went Michelin PSS, whole set-up bout $3500 when mounted balanced, sensors, and center caps. Dealer will hit you for much more, but Luke at Lindsay makes it happen for a solid pricehttp://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f20/jerzeyboy730/image-6.jpg

no they don't
they need front to back overall height and circumference to be the same but you can run wider rears
