So I am about 95% certian my next vehicle will be a 04 - 07 ctsv soon after I sell my cobra and truck....

One of the few things I really dont dig about these cars is the room out back for a tire, or lack there of.

I am looking at getting CCW 505a's and really want 18X8.5 in front and 18.10.5/18x11 out back... Is this possible on these cars without spending a ton of money to mini tub or get a wide body?

I want to at least be able to run a 305, preferably a 315+.

Car wont be slammed but will be lowered a little (getting either H&R or Eibach springs)

I know rolling the venders will be a must but what else? If it is too much work guess I will just get a 18X10...

I can fit a 18x10 w/ 305/30/18 MT Drag radials. You need to modify the trailing arms.

Is this with stock setup or do you have trailing arms to be able to run those tires/wheels.

Thanks

285's on 10's just come to the edge of the wheel well, maybe just a tad past. I think anything wider than that wouldn't look all that great IMO.
