What is the rear offset on the sedan fitment? Very nice looking wheels!

Forged? cast? weight???

Paul@HoweyIndustries
05-16-13, 04:10 PM
These are low pressure cast wheels. Weights are F: 20x9 - 27lbs / R: 20x10.5 28lbs

Pricing is very reasonable and they ship within 1-2 business days.

Do any of the vendors make a +55 rear wheel? All of these lower offsets don't lend themselves to wider tires whch is a bummer for a higher horsepower car. I'm guessing the 285 is about the limit with these wheels without rubbing on a sedan.

Paul@HoweyIndustries
05-16-13, 05:03 PM
You will only achieve a +55 with a custom wheel.

This particular setup went with the 285 due to the drop. If you are not lowered, a 295 should be doable but it has not been tested yet.

Hey guys, thats my car on the velgens.
The wheels fit and ride great on the car. I went with a 285 in the back because I wanted to be low and I didn't find many people on the forum that went with 295 on their 20's but im sure a 295 would've worked too. Overall i'm really happy with the wheels, I think they look great!

Looks good but they are heavy. However, whttaya expect for cast wheels? Should be perfect for a V primarily used as a cruiser rather than a racer.

It is all relative to what you are looking for. We have great lightweight options from our Forged and Flow Formed brands (at a different price point).

Velgen puts out a great looking wheel with extremely high quality construction and finishes. They are backed by a 5 year warranty.

Yes, you would need a 20mm rear spacer for a "flush" fitment.

CTS-V Coupe direct fitment is coming soon for those that don't wish to run spacers.

Will these work on a V Coupe?

Hoping - Seriously hoping.

Sorry - just saw other posts regarding V Coupe fitment - so what is the time frame (ETA) for V coupes without a spacer?

There currently isn't a set time frame but we estimate that there may be coupe specific fitment available by the end of the summer. The concavity of the wheel will not be different. The only difference will be that you will not need a spacer.

Paul,

Is there any chance of a V-Coupe photo shoot with the spacers? It will give us Coupe owners a peek at what's to come.

As soon as I have a V Coupe owner order these :D These are very new wheels and we still have quite a few vehicles we would like to see them on with full shoots. I can speak with Velgen, but I'm sure we would be willing to heavily discount a set for the first Coupe owner that purchases a set and commits to some pictures of the new setup.

I am led to believe the sedan and vagon use the same rims. I have been proved wrong in the past, but that was in '83, once.

Yes, the V Wagon shares the same offsets.

Any idea if a 295/30/20 would fit on a lowered sedan (eibach coupe springs) ??

Paul@HoweyIndustries
06-27-13, 08:15 PM
Yes, the 295 will work. A 285 was used on the V in this thread due to the KW Coilovers.

Deenasty83
06-27-13, 08:22 PM
Paul and they won't rub?

Paul@HoweyIndustries
06-27-13, 08:28 PM
As long as your Eibach drop is as stated by Eibach (no additional drop from settling), there will be no issue.

The problem with springs is that they can settle differently and either lower more or less than stated.

I hope this makes sense.

Deenasty83

In this picture the 285 Hankook looks like on a decent bump it would make contact with the quarter panel. That's why I'm skeptical running the 295. 120889

Paul@HoweyIndustries
06-28-13, 06:27 AM
There is no rub and the 285 was chosen due to how low the vehicle was adjusted on the KW Coilovers. The is CTSV21's car and I would suggest contacting him directly to confirm. He even stated that he feels a 295 would have worked without issue, even with his current drop.

I would personally recommend 285 if you are lowered that far. A 295 will be no problem if you have the standard Eibach drop.

Edit: I attempted to reply to your PM but your inbox is full. Please let me know when space is cleared and I will resend. Thanks!

I just purchased these, and I am wondering whether to go with the 285 or 295 rear. My sedan is lowered on Eibach Coupe springs (un-cut). Any suggestions? They look great!

06-28-13, 04:13 PM
I am lowered on the V3 with a 285-30-20 V12 , When i first installed i couldnt drive because i was tucking tire , so after adjusting the height in the pictures above there is no rubbing.
If your lowered on the Eibachs , you for sure can run the 295 / as eibach's sit higher than the D3 Suspension. I had the D3 spring and i wanted to go lower, so thats why i purchased the V3.[COLOR="Silver"]

What tire did you end up going with on rear?? 285 or 295? Getting ready to pull the trigger on exact same setup (wheels, eibach uncut coupe springs on Sedan). Was curious with what you
went with and if you had any issues.

Thanks!

How close are the spokes to the calipers? I'd like to run 305s but I know it will rub with these offsets. Is there room on the back spacing to machine Down thus increasing the offset? I'd like to be able to machine down to end with an offset of around 50-52 in the rear.

If you machine down the offset to 50-52 there will be two issues:

1) You center caps will not fit and the spindle/dust cap will protrude.
2) Your lug studs will over extend and normal lug nuts will crack when you tighten them down. You will need open ended lug nuts.

As far as caliper clearance, you should have not problem with the extra 5 to 7mm.
