10 YEAR OLD RIMS with 20x8.5 5x115 bolt and +40 offset off my Jeep wrangler. Will fit perfect.Some don't like gold but I do.Not to mention I am bringing back the old school with this on a new caddy. Just waiting to buy tires.141897

have any other pics like from the rear of the car. Would like to see what the 40 offset looks like. What size tire are you planning on running? I think with 20's your looking at a 30 series tire

Yeah looking at a 30 tire. Maybe 225 30 20. I have to get measurements for tires because as you know there isn't alot of room. But even a 245 that I have looks to fit fine. Those rims will stick out from the wheel well close to an inch. Less offset would be better for most. But I like the wider stance. Ill try and get more pics from the rear but really need the tires first to see how it sits.[COLOR="Silver"]

Kill it! Kill it with fire!!!Kill it with fire huh? That's what it will look like flying down the road. Remember Cadillac is a luxury brand and they always did it big. I'm not into huge wheels. 20 is great. If you like 17 in that's great also. But I don't like ridding on donuts. Post a pic of yours . I like my car to stick out. Look at my 745li pic I posted in what are you coming from post. That's who I am.

If YOU like it that's all that matters! I have the 18" chrome tires that highlight my door handles and other chrome trimmings on my 2014 2.0T ATS Performance. Are you gonna dip your handles and other trimmings in gold? That would really be hot! Below is a pic of my rims. DO YOU BABY! :D

are you sure that is a 40 offset? so 35 should fit even with the wheel well. Does anyone know the stock wheel offset

Never that. I just like up to 20 inch rims. I'm into more sport side of cars that's why I bought this car. I got away from BMW's. Depending on how the rims sit I want to drop it. I don't like wheel well gap. WILL NOT SEE A DONK WITH THIS CAR. I dont like that look. That should only be for old oldsmobiles and cars like that.

As I remember years ago it was a 40+ offset. I could be wrong. Nothing on the back of the rim to confirm it. I like your wheels if mine had those when I bought it I would stay with those. I have a real problem with wheels and sneakers. I can't have to many. The handle I'll probably get dipped to match. First I just need to get the tires and find out if the ride will be ok. As you know the car is already stiff.
I have a spare 245-35-20 in the garage and it looks to fit when I line it up with the wheel wheel and off set. I will probably get a 245-30-20 to be safe. But it would be nice to have the extra tire for a better ride. Everything I look at for the ATS is 35 to 40+ offset. Unless all those were wrong I was looking at.

Like you said it's what you like to put on your car. I like all the ATS's on this forum. I just don't like my 17's. I always swap out my stock rims. And they last longer putting them back on for winter

09-06-13, 02:22 PM
Depends on what you're going for. If you want to stick out (more) and have people point and give their opinion then go for it. Just be willing to accept the bad with the good as I'm sure you will be getting a lot of both.

Me personally? Not my taste. I agree the stock rims you have look bad but I'm not sure if I would (personally) go gold, 20's with them sticking out that far as it would take away from the sexiness of the car (IMO) and make it look...well....less sexy.

Those wheels do not fit. The rim is past the fender. That's going to rub like crazy and look like crap doing it. Put a stack of wood under the wheel and then slowly lower the car onto it so you can see how the wheel travels through the suspension range.

09-07-13, 10:25 AM
The rims do fit. Yesterday I took my old 245-30-20 tire and test fit it on. Tire mounted and put on front and then back. Turned the wheels drove car up and down my driveway.not once did it rub. Matter of fact when I sat It down and looked at it the rim is only outside of the fender like a half an inch. Looks more when lifted because the car is so small and the jack is pushing the car over and rim looks like it sticks out more. When its all said and done its only 1 inch bigger than the 19s you can get. And the . When they are on I will post pics. I am not the conventional person with an ats. I also have a fifteen inch sub in my trunk pushing 1600 what's. I used to work at an install and rim shop before I had to grow up.I am 39 but I'm still young. But really this isn't my first rodeo.

Everyone has their own opinion. That's what we all want to here. Not something out of the box and off subject like what was said. It's cool though.

No update on me because tires are not mounted yet. You said they will rub like crazy and ugly while doing it. Why would I post anything anyway. You don't like it so just wondering why you want updates. Unless your talking about peoples general posts. In that case disregard that. If so it takes about 5 days for tires to come. And on the other hand I am not rich either. Things take a little time. I do have the tires now and they will be mounted soon. I live at work now and there isn't a lot of time.

Should be by the end of the week. Getting them mounted in the morning but won't have time to put them on until the day after. No TPMS for now. It's getting cold here and they won't be on that long until spring.

09-24-13, 12:08 PM
20's are just too big for this car in my opinion. I'm not a fan of the gold with the chrome lip but I bet a darker bronze color on some 18's would look killer. I had some bronze Tenzo's on my old Mazdaspeed 3 and they looked killer on black.

Like you said it's all what you like. 18 is just to small for me. 19's are just to much to deal with, buying tires. I never go bigger than 20's on any car I have. The color is really copper. Just in some light it looks different. Those pics were in a real bright and sunny day.

If your intention was to stand out and be noticed then mission accomplished. Those rims will get attention and some comments for sure. I don't like them because they don't look like they are part of the car. They look like an after thought that went bad. The good news for both of us is its not my car and what I think matters not.

People here seem to like plain and stock straight out the box. If they were black some people here would say oh they are to big. They don't look right. Once again same people that don't touch their cars just drive em. But what do I know. And how do you get an after thought anyways. I knew what color my rims were going to be the first day I bought. I'm far from done with the car but thanks for the comment I always like to hear what people think.

These rims were chrome. They were in my garage pitted and peeled. I painted them copper and the black lip while leaving the lip chrome.

I was not saying that he was old. That was not my intention at all. I know a man here with a hooked up old caddy. He does all his one work also. He is 65 years old. generally people from a different era like different things. But when people just comment on other people and never post what they have done to their car. None of it really makes any sense to me. Put pics up of their car then. And not just a stock car because that is a dime a dozen. Once again Rspitler I am sorry that was not what I meant. You are not old and I will be your age soon enough. As for wheel sticking out. I always liked that look. They are out from the fender no more than a half an inch. Sorry you don't like it.

The car now looks like a toy. I mean come on, oversized, gold rims, that stick out past the body? Most people are going to think it's obnoxious, tacky, a joke, or just plain fugly.

You posted the pics, and people are posting their thoughts. We're you expecting everyone to love them? If the masses were into big gold rims, the manufacturers would be equipping them as standard, or optional equipment.

If you like them, awesome, it's your car, it's how you like it (I'm not being sarcastic, that's great). But not all that many people are going to share your taste, so you're going to have to learn to deal with the criticism.


...But when people just comment on other people and never post what they have done to their car. None of it really makes any sense to me....

My car's not stock either. I bought it with dealer installed, aftermarket trim, carriage roof, rims, and a spoiler. I've removed some of the stainless trim, had the windows tinted, had the engine and valve covers color matched, and changed the interior from shale to black. I'm going to do a couple of other things to it at some point, but here's how it sits now. Please feel free to criticize:

How is a car with after market parts and modifications stock?

Wouldn't that make your car stock?

You complained that "people don't post what they've done to their car". Well, that's what's been done to my car.

No, I don't have an ATS. That's relevant to this discussion how, exactly?

A car show isn't "the masses" as in the general car buying public. It's a gathering of people who are into rare, unique, classic, and/or modified cars.


You come on. Your style isn't like mine. Everyone is different. EXACTLY!!! So why do you seem to get an attitude when someone disagrees with you or criticizes your taste?

The copper rims... seeing it on the car it feels very steampunk to me. And I like steampunk. The colors feel a little off balance because there is so much chrome where as the rims are so large. Do you plan to replace the chrome around the doors and possibly the grill with flat black accents, for example, instead? I think it would look a lot more striking. You may have already answered that but there's so much nonsense from people in this post I've skipped over reading a lot of the content.

I'll assume you're referring to the actual insults, and not the personal opinions being taken as insults.

What's wrong with discussing politics? :hmm:

I don't understand why race always has to come up because of one little comment. I think most of us are getting really tired of all this political correctness now in our country. It's acceptable to talk about whitey or "the man" or even joke about Italians , Polish , Germans , Irish , Mexicans or anybody who isn't African American. I am an American who happens to come from Italy. I'm not an Italian American I am American. People at my work can talk about my heritage and never worry about losing their jobs because after all I'm American not African American. I just don't understand why people demand to be treated differently yet those same people want to be viewed as the same. I guess if I found this Country to be unbearable then I would go live in Italy where my Grandparents were born. Maybe that's what all ethnic groups should do if they feel they are mistreated in this country and leave the racists to themselves.

loved it. sense of humor seems to be lacking here. thats fine. live and learn. not sure it was meant to be racist....I am 36 y.o. "whitey" here. it was simply meant to be funny.


if this gets you's guy's panties in a bunch, you wouldnt make it five minutes in my world. Remember when men had a set of balls between their legs? Remember when they didnt get offended and had thicker skin? oh well....days gone by I guess. Get out from behind the desk and outside more often? I know its hard but try to be the man your pappy was.

greezy, I went back through this thread - twice - There's no need to get confrontational or nasty and resort to low blows - keep your comments germane to the thread topic. In the forums for Help Desk and Registration Problems there's a sub-forum: Rules and Guidelines, which you electronically signed when you became a member. Please take 3 days off and read through that forum - there are 15 or so guidelines dating back to 2003; Most members try to follow them.

EDIT at 5:48 PM EDT - I see that you have already been given a small vacation. Please take the time to bone up on how the site operates. Thanks for the consideration.

It' comes up because the comment offended a member of this forum and he/she reported it. We have clearly written rules about it and generally apply a zero tolerance policy about any kind of racial comments.

There's also something to be said for quitting while you're still ahead. But that takes brains, not balls.

Thanks dog. I really didn't care what people thought of it. First time I posted because I know what happens. What they don't understand is I have worked on many cars and fabricator working at an install shop. Rims stereo lots of different things. That was before I decided I needed more money. Now it is just my cars. I have only had the car for 3 months now. I have had the car apart front to back. There are things that people on here will never try. They don't have the balls or the nohow .Right now I am working on a small wing for the back window. Nothing you can buy. when I finish I will post because I like to upset people here. They like to just buy the car and drive it. Thats fine just don't comment then. But thanks again. I see You were brought up right. You da man.yoha
dude this thread is valuable. it gives us an idea about fitments. i like it, i just wouldnt want rims that poke. Haters always gonna hate....thats what they do. Thank you duneless for having balls to be different and for the thread.

Gotta remember the number one demographic of posters on this site.....old whitey's. lol

----------

I don't know what was said. But if it was anything like what was said to me there is no need. These people say these thing to upset you. This is about cars yet someone wants to say something about race. I wish I could have read it because I dont see it now. If you are sticking up for those people or your making the comments then I don't get it from your post. I won't get into the race shit. They want to say it to me in person then hold on. It will turn into something they can't handle. But of coarse that won't happen because they hide behind their computer. Not me. You can know where I live and all. Shit don't scare me. My father didn't raise no punk. He was from Valdosta GA.

By the way it is not ok to talk about other races at all. No matter what color they are. None of it is ok. So stuff you here at work like that doesn't fly with me. What does is cars. I'm here for my car but I had to hear stupid remarks of coarse.

What I was saying is you don't have an ATS. WHY ARE YOU HERE TALKING CRAP ABOUT MY ATS. YOU DON'T HAVE ONE. And if you have factory installed stuff from the dealer. Yes that is stock. Non stock is something you think up and put on your self. Or installed by a pro. Not at the dealer saying oh I want this and that. Those are options and nothing more. Thats why there is one down the street like it. And Buddy my car is far from stock only after 3 months. I will never tell what has been done to it so far. Only what you can see. Get an ATS and come back. K
How is a car with after market parts and modifications stock?

Wouldn't that make your car stock?

You complained that "people don't post what they've done to their car". Well, that's what's been done to my car.

No, I don't have an ATS. That's relevant to this discussion how, exactly?

A car show isn't "the masses" as in the general car buying public. It's a gathering of people who are into rare, unique, classic, and/or modified cars.

EXACTLY!!! So why do you seem to get an attitude when someone disagrees with you or criticizes your taste?

----------

That's right modified. Not factory options. Your own vision.

Yes there will be alot more done. I was only fitting them for spring. There will be more done trim and alot more. Your gonna have to skip over all the crap. Because they don't want to just stick to cars. If you like it that's cool. But in the spring the car will be alot more me. I really went on with the whole copper rim because they said it wouldn't fit. Rub and look like shit. They said it would bottom out. Not once has it. They are still on now but cold weather is coming. The first pic I just finished painting one rim. They were old and pitted chrome. I'll get back with more as it gets done. Thanks.
The copper rims... seeing it on the car it feels very steampunk to me. And I like steampunk. The colors feel a little off balance because there is so much chrome where as the rims are so large. Do you plan to replace the chrome around the doors and possibly the grill with flat black accents, for example, instead? I think it would look a lot more striking. You may have already answered that but there's so much nonsense from people in this post I've skipped over reading a lot of the content.

----------

Comments are good. But talking sh## isn't. So I will always come back with something.
^^^This^^^

The car now looks like a toy. I mean come on, oversized, gold rims, that stick out past the body? Most people are going to think it's obnoxious, tacky, a joke, or just plain fugly.

You posted the pics, and people are posting their thoughts. We're you expecting everyone to love them? If the masses were into big gold rims, the manufacturers would be equipping them as standard, or optional equipment.

If you like them, awesome, it's your car, it's how you like it (I'm not being sarcastic, that's great). But not all that many people are going to share your taste, so you're going to have to learn to deal with the criticism.



My car's not stock either. I bought it with dealer installed, aftermarket trim, carriage roof, rims, and a spoiler. I've removed some of the stainless trim, had the windows tinted, had the engine and valve covers color matched, and changed the interior from shale to black. I'm going to do a couple of other things to it at some point, but here's how it sits now. Please feel free to criticize:

----------

This was about an ATS. NOW LOOK AT IT. Why does it always turn into this. I post something and people have to come out with race crap. I started this thread. You want my address or # I will happily give it to you. You will be well recieved. And all because of pics I posted about my car. I am very sorry for those of you just wanting to look and a little post. I apologize .
I'll assume you're referring to the actual insults, and not the personal opinions being taken as insults.

He read the post that were takin out about 2 weeks ago. I know because they were said to me. Someone stepped in and took them out. He has had it just like I have. They don't want to talk cars just on how they played with their fesses and urine as a child. Don't blame him. If you can read what was said and you will see why. what was erased anyway.

Yo go to the STS forum. You say what do you suppose will happen when the suspension compresses? Nothing buddy smooth sailing. Wrong again. Looks like you live on here.
...And what do you suppose is going to happen when you go over a bump and the suspension compresses?

----------

You must be kidding me right. I don't know what a trail blazer is?. Man I have worked on all cars. I know what all cars are. You need to shut the hole in your face . You make no sense. And spelling. Really this is like text. You get your point across dumb A##. I'm telling you I would smack the hell out of ya. I have tried to be nice back to you. But denture cream must not hold a firm grip anymore. I'm bout sick of your mouth. Ask me do I know what a trail blazer is. I own an ATS BUDDY I KNOW ALL ABOUT CARS. My LAST CAR WAS A 745LI. You know what that is? Dumb A##. Not a Model T either. Stay 55 on the highway k.
Do you even have a clue as to what a Trailblazer SS is? Maybe you should look it up before spouting off about things you don't know.

By the way, it's spelled you're, not your.

...Sooo are you now saying my car isn't stock???

----------

Oh, I'm assuming this was for me, but you put the quote in the wrong place.
What I was saying is you don't have an ATS. WHY ARE YOU HERE TALKING CRAP ABOUT MY ATS. YOU DON'T HAVE ONE.Umm, you don't have to own something or have to have done something to be able to form an opinion about it... Have you ever watched a movie? Did you have an opinion of that movie? Or were you not allowed to have an opinion because you've never made a movie??


And if you have factory installed stuff from the dealer. Yes that is stock Non stock is something you think up and put on your self. Or installed by a pro. Not at the dealer saying oh I want this and that. Those are options and nothing more.. Yes, stock = as the vehicle rolled off the assembly line, or as it left the dealer with manufacturer produced accessories. My car doesn't fit that description. The dealer sent it to a specialist shop to have the AFTERMARKET carriage roof, AFTERMARKET stainless trim, and AFTERMARKET spoiler installed. They then installed the AFTERMARKET Vogue rims. My engine was disassembled and painted "by a pro". there is extensive AFTERMARKET soundproofing in my car that I "put in myself". So no, my car is not "stock"


thats why there is one down the street like it.Oh I'm sure there is, upload some pics when you get a chance...


And Buddy my car is far from stock only after 3 months.I couldn't care less. The only reason we got into stock VS modified is because YOU COMPLAINED that people were criticizing your car, without showing what was done to theirs. So I posted what was done to mine, and you decided to tell me that my car with aftermarket parts is stock, but your car with aftermarket parts is not :rolleyes:


I will never tell what has been done to it so far. Only what you can see.:hmm: That means either there are no other modifications, or the quality of work/parts is poor and you don't want anyone to see. But again, I don't care either way. I only came here to talk about your ugly rims...


Get an ATS and come back. KNo, not "K". I'll be keeping my Seville and posting where I please. But thanks for the suggestion.

I think Duneless is clueless. He doesn't like our opinions of his hoop-dee car and then resorts to name calling. Where is the moderator of this forum? This guy needs some time off. He can't let it go. And I still think he has no clue as to what a Trailblazer SS is.

I for one have not read ONE remark from any forum member using any racist remarks toward him (or her, after all he sure does get his panties in a wad when people disagree with his "style"). But, he comes back with his own racist remarks such as "whitey, living in the pool houser etc. all because the MAJORITY of us think he took a classy looking car and trashed it. Hmmm, come to think of it, maybe he lives in his (or her) parents pool house and was given a trophy for taking a pi$$ and fed from the silver spoon.

Duneless, take your car to a forum where people will not criticize your tasteless choices.

And I'll be the one to say it again, YUK!!!!!

This thread has gone into the gutter. Two members have earned 7 day vacations from the site. Further mudslinging is pointless.

When foul language, insults and name-calling begin, people disappear and threads get closed.
