Considering the purchase of a new 2013 awd coupe Premium which comes with the unsightly 18' polished wheels. Will the 19" f/b OEM wheels (not the V wheels) from the rwd coupe fit with no rev/mile or other issues?

I recall seeing on here that the awd coupes with the 19s don't work out well. But hopefully someone with first hand experience can help out

.... or what about alternative 18" wheels to replace the crappy ones that come with the AWD?

I stayed with the OEM measurements.

Katie (the former Cadillac Rep on this site) promised to check with GM engineers to see what could be swapped but I never heard back from her. I just didn't want to take a chance with the AWD system.

There aren't a lot of options for the OEM measurements (diameter, width and offset).

Here is a link to an album. These are Lorenzo WL28s.

Not the best pictures. I need to snap some with my digital SLR. They were all taken on an iPhone. A couple were taken the night I got the wheels while the car was still dirty. The others were taken a couple of days later when I was able to wash it.

I guess I should have said for a white car :)

I have a 2009 CTS4 and went with 245/45/19 front and 275/40/19 rear, 2 years ago and no issues. I put snow tires on the stock 18" rims for winter driving and that worked out great.

Is that a coupe or sedan?

The coupe was released as a 2011 so it must be a sedan
