No not really. If they don't like them it's ok. But I actually think that they will be alright once they are on. I didn't like the stealth gray either till I got one for myself. And the price is right for the wheel and tire package. So we will see.

Thanks RAND49ER!

Not bad, but the more see thru the better on the V, IMHO. I hope you are not paying the crazy $800 custom wheel price.

loanman, if you like them that's what matters. You make the payments and drive the car.

You guys are harsh! I think they will look better on the car than you guys think! Something has to detract the eyes of onlookers from the color of the car anyway! OH snap! LOL! I am just not a gray fan, except for my light gray! :D Right, IGOTMEAV?

I will tell you this though, even if he decides that they are too chromey (is that a word?), for the price he paid, he could have the spokes painted and they would look awesome! Someone has those very similar wheels on here and he had the spokes painted black and ALL of you loved them! Maybe you just didn't know that he had the spokes painted! AHAA! All this is only one man's opinion!

All I can say is after you put these on you better not start another post asking what you can do to make your car faster...because the first response will be remove the gangsta dubs.

other than that...well, nothing else to say.

Actaully it has crossed my mind about paintint the centers. And for all who don't like them take a second look at those ugly ass meglia wheels. Like I said I don't care that you guys have a opinion (some of you are as old as dirt anyways) hahah. Its all good. I think that once they are on the car they will be ok. And if not I will sell them to 250

I dont think anyone likes those either.....but they are only about 160 or something a rim.....if i were you id choose different rims...as you are totally ruining the V's purpose - and its not the cover of dub magazine....

Personally, I wouldnt put those on ur car. HAve you called CCW? When I called them they said I could get 8.5 x 20 and 9.5 x 20 with tires for 3300...i think spending the extra few bucks would be worth it in the long run. but its really up to you. also, if you search around..like ebay and stuff you can find some pretty nice wheels. like there were some asantis that were like mine but chrome and they were practicly new, they sold on ebay for 2400. I would really put some staggered ones on !!!

one more thing...how wide are they? and what size/brand tires are they coming with...might wanna make sure they don't rub.

what does being an old fart have anything to do with it??? Im 22, in the whole hip hop scene etc....and still think ur destroying the vehicles intentions by throwing those rims on there....like i said thosde rims are for the 300c crowd in dub magazine.

"destroying" the car is definately a harsh term. the wheels aren't going to be welded onto the rotor's.. you can roll the 20's for a nice cruise and put the stocker's back on when you hit up the track.

I personally think those rims are nice, and would look good on the V. They have a 3pc look and are made by dvinci, which is a brand that has really proved itself in recent years. At least they are not those played out TiS or DUB rims. Its a unique design and the rivets really set it off.

Do it and let the rest of them mount the CCW's. Some variety is good!

Like I said. I just wanted feed back. Its cool if some of you don't like them and some do. They will work for now. In the same manner I see spending any more money on wheels then I did. If I don't like them after a while I will either sell them to someone else who doesnt want to spending tons of money.

And with a certified car I don't plan on making it much faster. Its not worth voiding the warranty. Once its ends thats when my girl maggie will come.

I actually like the look of the wheels themselves. But I don't think the V looks good with 5 spokes, in general. The V seems to look better with more spokes on the rims.

did you see the xlr v with the wheels on it?

02-09-07, 03:34 PM
I think they look alright. I mean I would not put them on my V but I have saw way worse wheels on some V's on here...

02-09-07, 03:42 PM
So, if they had black spokes they would NOT be considered "gangster"??:bigroll: :thepan:


It's your car, do with it as you wish. :)

Personally, I think the wheel looks really good on that XLR. Definitely post pics when you get them on the CTS-V.

Wow! I came to this thread as I was just thinking of Gene (theloanman) and thought of the HORRIBLE wheels I have seen on some cars in this forum and you know what? I think Gene's wheels will look fine! So, CHP-NV: Right on and points for you! I am not, at all, a chrome guy myself, as many of you are not either, but the style is pretty nice and I bet they look much better than many of you think! Just keep an open mind and wait for the pics! I know, I know it is his taste that matters but WE ALL KNOW THAT WITHOUT WRITING IT! Duh!

I had to write that, in caps too, sorry!

Get them pics on here Gene!
