What's up guys/gals, first post but V owner since July 2012. It has escaped hurricane sandy, and made the unfortunate experience a little more tolerable. Between custom one-off design, to natures way of saying F-you, and hurdles of locating tires to work, myself and Joe Medina from rennen were able to finally get these wheels made (only 4 months later lol, thanks Joe). I hear D3 had some input on the sizing as this is the only V of our knowledge to wear a 21/22" combo with a 22x12 rear. The wheels are custom designed monobloks of the 3 piece RM-10 to achieve more concavity. Next up is a mild drop, a few bits for the body and interior, and perhaps a few added hundred horses. 6 speed of course with recaros. This is purely a street look, factory wheels for more serious driving. Enjoy the sneak peak, photoshoot to follow soon after a few mods.

No, not all about appearance, it's something you do for fun when the money is there to spend it. Would it make you feel better when I apply that approach to the performance mods? Then you can photoshop a rocket on the hood being that you have a lot of spare time on your hands :). Or, if that isnt fun enough you can photoshop a big vagina on your personal car to better demonstrate its owner. FYI, when I want more performance I just jump in one of my other cars that doesn't have 22" rears, I'm fortunate to have a few nice options.

Oh yeah the rears only weigh 25 lbs. each. Just sayin' bud :). If you don't like the "concept car" look, then don't pay attention to it. We don't criticize you for being a load now do we?

I think personalizing these cars is a good thing, if they all looked the same it would be no fun. Some people hated my pinstripes on mine, but i like them, that's all that counts. I like those wheels btw, definatley different.

I like the design of the wheels, but my personal preference would be for smaller wheels and more tire sidewall. Of course, everyone is different.

I'm confused. You take a performance car, then you put huge wheels on it and say it's purely for the street. Then you say it's not all about appearance right after saying it is all about appearance coupled with your plans to do more appearance-only modifications, and finish by saying when you want performance you drive a different car that doesn't have oversized wheels on it, even though you're the one who took a performance car and made it all about appearance in the first place.

Is that about right? Look, you may be better off posting stuff like this in the appearance mods section. And if you're just going to drive other cars for performance anyway, you could save a lot of money by trading your V in on a normal CTS and blinging that out instead. It'll look pretty much the same, right?

Ok, I guess I was very confusing to the two members who probably at one time wished 15" cragars came on a V. The others understood me just fine. High 5 to education. My V is one wheel swap away from having more access to more performance tires as 22s don't offer summer tire options. The point is that the wheels are a street look/ appearance mod only. I'm pretty certain that only a few here take their car to the track. That being said, the V is a great car for what it is, however not exactly the quintessential track car given its size/ weight. A lotus/ Ferrari/etc make for better track cars. Cts V is a very capable car that is more of a highway monster than auto X.

I own one, so I obviously know what it is and isn't. Stop taking cars so seriously, and if you saw the car in person you would appreciate the "look" in three dimension as we also know these cars look better in real life. As for the 2 guys on here that think they are such performance purists, I really hope your cars are 6 speeds.. If not, stfu :)

Oh, who are those guys? I was hoping you could point them out to me.


The others understood me just fine. High 5 to education.

What makes you think I didn't understand you? Was there something about me quoting what you said back to you that makes you think I didn't understand what you were saying? You do things purely for looks, or as you put it, "street". And then you tried to say you didn't do things just for looks. And then you went on to mention all the other things you're going to do just for looks. Seems pretty clear to me. The only thing I don't actually understand is why you're unable to admit you do things just for looks.

Like I said, if you're going to do things just for looks, just get a regular CTS. It's a lot cheaper and you won't have to bother with that bothersome performance aspect. Bling bling yo! I mean don't even bother getting lowering springs, just cut those sons of bitches! That way you can destroy the handling with impunity and it'll be awesome for the street look, which is, after all, what you're going for. Right? Looks at the specific expense of performance?


I own one, so I obviously know what it is and isn't.

Unlike the rest of the people on this forum.


I really hope your cars are 6 speeds.. If not, stfu :)

If you were better at paying attention, you could look right there below my name and see that I have a 6MT, and save yourself the embarrassment of assuming I don't have one.

Anyway, the point is that you are only interested in doing appearance mods on your V, which begs the question "why did you get a V in the first place"? A regular CTS could easily serve the same purpose. You keep making the point that there are other, better performance cars, so why even bother with a V? I'm just asking a question here, the problem seems to be your inability to answer it. I get it, you're being defensive because not everybody here is fawning over your "appearance only" mods. Well put on your big boy pants and suck it up. Not everybody is going to agree with the choices you've made, and you should probably learn to deal with that.

But don't try to pretend you bought this car for performance. You've said more than once that this car is not a quintessential racer, it's not an autox champ, and there are other cars that have better performance. That's all true, but you're making my point for me. If the car isn't about performance, why did you buy it? To put crappy lowering springs and oversized wheels on it for the street look? You can get that with a Honda Civic. Just saying.

And don't forget the giant ricer wing.

Come on guys what's with the pissing contest. Individuals are free to purchase whatever vehicle they so choose and are free to do whatever hair brained mods they desire. It's about personal choices. There's no need to get all wrapped around the axle over mods people choose to do to THEIR vehicles. Life is too short and I don't think the spirit of this forum is about throwing each other under the bus over mods. We may not always agree with what an individual decides to do to their V but guess what., its their V, not mine, not yours so please keep the negative derogatory comments off the damn forums.

Ok, you still don't get it, you still seem like you are suffering mild retardation, and I wouldn't be surprised if you are the corny 60 year old science teacher who bought a V to pick up middle school chicks. You are grasping here trying to make "fun" of wheels your wife won't let you finance on the credit card. Now that you have my attention, I did not buy the V as my sole performance vehicle. I own several cars, and a couple are dedicated toward performance only. See this is the beauty of America, you work and earn money. You spend it on what you can afford and enjoy however the hell you want to. Some spend it on cars, real estate, or gadgets like I do, and some spend it on Asian kiddy porn sites like you.

Lets hear about your V and why you feel you represent the car better than all else on here :). Lets see what mods you were able to do after all the credit card purchases for animal porn and hotel excursions with underage boys. Shoooo fly.


To all else, I'm glad you guys can appreciate the effort even if the tire profile isn't your taste. Look forward to some positive posts.

Vendetta,

I was studying out of this thread because I don't care how stupid you make your car look but when you start insulting other forum members because their opinion differs from yours I will.

Those wheels look absolutely stupid and I think you are an childish a-hole because you post your pic and then insult people who don't like it. You are correct, you have the right to make your car look as asinine as possible. We have the right not to like it. You mentioned a couple times that its an appearance mod. That's fine but it detracts (takes away from I case your IQ isn't that high) performance. The question here is, why buy a high performance car then do something to take away from the performance of that car? If you have the money to waste good for you. I don't care if I was a billionaire, those ridiculous wheels would never be in my possession
If there is a retard in this conversation I say it's you... F'n idiot .

Look, quite a lot of us in here are older or mature guys that would never add those wheels to our cars. But he came in the forum and asked, so when he asked for options he got the good and the bad. I'm not a 60 year old science teacher but a 50 year old engineer. When I see cars with ghetto wheels I laugh but it's his car. Maybe there is a forum for younger guys that are into that sort of mod, in here not so much. Giant wheels are heavy and adding rotational mass test far out messes up braking, turning, and acceleration. I think we all know that, I guess he is fine with it.

I agree 100%. When people post mods and ask for opinions, they should let people provide them without getting defensive. The problem I have here is that HE NEVER ASKED FOR OPINIONS. Please re read his original post.

"What's up guys/gals, first post but V owner since July 2012. It has escaped hurricane sandy, and made the unfortunate experience a little more tolerable. Between custom one-off design, to natures way of saying F-you, and hurdles of locating tires to work, myself and Joe Medina from rennen were able to finally get these wheels made (only 4 months later lol, thanks Joe). I hear D3 had some input on the sizing as this is the only V of our knowledge to wear a 21/22" combo with a 22x12 rear.

Next up is a mild drop, a few bits for the body and interior, and perhaps a few added hundred horses. 6 speed of course with recaros. This is purely a street look, factory wheels for more serious driving. Enjoy the sneak peak, photoshoot to follow soon after a few mods. "

Where is he asking for feedback in that post? I NEVER ask for feedback on my mods. I simply post what I have done and will say "I know it's not for everyone" people will take it upon themselves to comment but I tend to have a thick skin and really don't care what anyone else thinks except me. Some of the feedback here has just been plain mean. The OP has not helped by jumping in and trying to respond. I'll go back to, if he likes his mods that is all that matters, if he asks, by all means provide your input. If he does not ask and you HATE that look, why not just move on? As far as I can tell he NEVER asked for opinions.

This kind of reaction is also a great way to ensure he never posts again. I thought we would want new members here? Am I wrong?

Many of these posts make members look like children. Including some of the OP's responses. Don't we all have the same passion for our cars? Is this really worth arguing about? Thought this was supposed to be fun? Guess I was mistaken. I think some members need to grow up. Just my opinion.

I kid you not, There is a Black Coupe in my area that has a wing that looks exactly like the one posted below ecept in silver. If he asked me if I liked it I'd tell him "No, makes the V look ricey and provides no performance gains". When I see it I laugh. I live in a fairly small town so I expect I will run into him somewhere. I won't offer my opinion unless he asks and I sure hope he dosen't :D

If his posts are going to be insulting to other members then I, for one, don't want him posting here anymore. Wether you ask for opinions or not you will get them when you post mods or ideas that might seem 'out of the norm'. If you can't take it then don't post what you are doing. Most of the posts that were negative started out by saying if he is happy with it then it's fine. Some posts might have questioned why he did it but no one insulted him until he started insulting another forum member. He fired the first shot and I would be happy if we never heard from him again.

You are right Pat. He was doing fine until he posted this...

"No, not all about appearance, it's something you do for fun when the money is there to spend it. Would it make you feel better when I apply that approach to the performance mods?

My comment was only that he didn't ask your opinions when another member said he had. Yes, he is wrong for responding like this and then re posting with the kiddie porn comment but what good is someone doing by posting a poor photoshop of a caprice (Or whatever it is)? I think they are baiting him. Not saying in any way that his responses are mature responses or appropriate but when we respond back in kind, we are no better. I've been here long enough to see people post their custom mods and members here trash them. "Not my cup of Tea" or "As long as you like them" is really all that is needed. Some members try and bait people and that is just not right. Here is my litmus test, would you say it to the person if you met them face to face? If so, go right ahead. If not, why not take the high road and keep this a friendly place?

Some people get off on baiting others and enjoy getting into it on the forums. I say we don't give them the satisfaction of replying to inappropriate posts with more inappropriate posts. Of course, that is just my opinion. If we stop posting he will more than likely go away since no one is stooping to that level.

As far as what you do with your car have a ball. Some might say why add mods to a heavy car if performance could be had much easier on a lighter platform. We all do stupid mods for our personal benefit. Simple. End. Go out and drive your car.

I don't know why people hate on others rides. You pimp your shit out how ever you wish. It's your money, do whatever the hell you want.

SOMEONE has to look out for the poor defensless car who has no voice of its own. How'd you like to go through life getting laughed at, even by the jalopy in the Wal-Mart parking lot?

Hmm..Doesn't look like you even have a CTS-V LOL
Look at your own truck..Your wheels are not BIG but god damn they are ghetto..One of V_for_Vendetta's monoblock wheels can probably buy you a set of pepboy wheels for each of your cars.

WHEN I get my V next summer, it will be sharing space with:

My wife's 2010 Camaro (only a V6, but still fun to drive)

My '04 Avalanche

AND my 09 HD CVO Road Glide

Never been stuck on one brand and I've swapped between trucks and cars. First new car was a Dodge Daytona (don't laugh... lol), traded that in for a 93 Camaro when the 4th gen came out... was pretty cool having one of the first ones in Missouri, got lots of attention. Traded that for an Isuzu Rodeo when I got stationed in Montana and the Camaro wasn't so much fun to drive in the 9 months of winter there lol. Also had a Acura Integra GSR at that time... a hoot to drive in Montana's "reasonable & prudent" speed limit days! Ex got the Integra in the divorce and I traded the Rodeo in for a Dodge Durango. Kept that for 6 years and traded it in for my Avalanche in '04. Keeping the Av when I get my V, so I'll be able to get around in Colorado when the V is tucked away in the garage.

If you post on a message board, you better be thick skinned. Unfortunately, the message board world is suffering the same political correctness that the rest if this country is doomed by.

In my opinion, those wheels are awful. That's MY opinion and its my right to say what I want. If you can't handle it, tough shit.

Yeah, I don't think anyone is threatening to repo the car or jack the wheels and throw them in the ocean. The OP has the right to decorate his car however he chooses. We have the right to mock or praise or whatever...

The really funny part is I just photoshopped the huge wheels under the vagon as a joke. Totally not serious. But then captain defensive-pants took it seriously and got his panties all twisted up about it. If you're going to get that worked up over any perceived criticism of your choices, real or not, maybe you should consider not posting in a public forum where your post could be subject to opinions that don't line up with yours. :thumbsup:
