I am interested in seeing that too. Might be a better way to get a wider rim.

Where did you get your wheel spacers and how much did they cost?

I went with Wheeladapter.com. Talked with Fred, very nice guy. I think I paid about $150 shipped for a pair...I have 5mm spacers all around.

I believe the back wheel is 19x9.5 ...I was thinking of doing that, but I like the staggered look. I think the black car that kciaccio posted has 19's all around...

do you ever rub with only 5mm spacers on the front? im doing my own mod to the rear trailing arm to clear a big wheel so no need for a spacer for me in the rear.

OK last question lol did you need longer wheel studs with the 5mm spacers?

Is it me, or does it looks like the rear 19" wheel needs more tire sidewall?

WakikiVee
01-31-13, 10:23 PM
Yes, I did and you should just to be safe...

Nah, the back is fine...if anything I am going with a lower profile for the fronts next time...

I had the chance to pull the trigger on some sts v wheels on eBay but were warehoused in Tampa so no shipping.$650..biggest mistake letting those slip away.

So, read this thread and others regarding the STS-V wheels on a CTS-V. I want to be clear, does one need spacers for both the fronts and rears. I managed to pickup a set of wheels with almost new tires this week for no cash out.

Thanks

BTW....any chance to ever open it up on the island? Would drive me crazy just to do "highway" speeds.

I've had friends over there....and all they've said is that is miserable to have a quick car there.

Thoughts?

Rusty, you're gonna need spacers for the front so the wheel will clear the suspension parts...for the rear, you can get away without the spacers if you run negative camber or if you get modified trailing arms.

Mberisha - Yeah, living on an island can be tricky, but you can still find spots to get the ol' V up to a 120 or so...the shitty part is, people remember your car after awhile...lol

So if I don't plan on modified arms, I just run a 5mm spacer in back also?

And I agree having a car people remember can be problematic. Seems people don't forget my lil coupe, "The SpeakEasy Special"

Haha...I can see how that car could be memorable! Yeah, I initally only had spacers on the front because they are required for clearance. I also had longer wheel studs installed to compensate for the spacer width. When I tried to do an alignment, the rear wheels just barely hit the trailing arms with slight negative camber. I decided to run the same spacers in the back and it gave me enough clearance from the arms. I didn't change the studs on the back and they seem to be fine.

That's perfect information thanks. So I will get four 5mm thick spacers and all will be good in the world.

I'll send the info off to my friend that built me the spacers for the coupe. We needed them a larger diam than everyone offered to support the 40 Ford wheels I was running with the Buick brake drums. You can see in the photo where the rim sits on the spacer.

Start mixing parts and you have to do interesting things eh?
