Finally got my Rims on last week and I couldnt be happier. These Vossen Wheels look too dope on this car. I also had my lights painted black and the rim shop painted my caliper without me even asking which was nice. I had ordered some Black DNP Caliper Covers that didnt make it in time so now I may try to return them since I am happy with the look now.

For your questions;

It cost me $150 out the door to get my lights painted. I had them only do two coats where they typically do 3 because I didnt want to be too dark. I decided to make it a permanent decision so I did have them clear coat it after to give it the nice glossy look.

The wheels and tires were $3,490 out the door with all labor included.

And now for the pics hot off the press

Looks awesome!!

Do you know the details on the wheel specs? 20x9's in the front and 20x10's in the rear? What offsets in front and rear? And if the suspension completely bottomed out would your wheels clear the inner fenders or do they look flush with the fenders and would rub?

The reason I'm asking is because I want to run 20x9's and 20x10's also but... http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2008-2013-cadillac-cts-general-discussion/288844-bagged-2cd-gen-cts-need-second.html

Who painted your lights? What product did you use?

I can't believe they did the tail lights without taking them out of the car... pretty bold. I took mine off and used nightshade

You got the best wheels for the coupe that's for sure :-P

My opinion might be a bit bias haha

A buddy referred me to a small body shop that did the lights. I don't know what type of paint they used. I believe the wheels are 20 x 10.5" in the back and I think they would barely clear if the suspension bottomed out. They had the car jacked up at one point and dropped it pretty fast and the car bounced but still had plenty of room. I definitely would look into it more though before you make any moves.
