    Will Eldorado ESC wheels fit on an ETC?

    I recently bought my first Caddy, a 2001 ETC and thus a newbie in the forum as well.

    It just so happens that I prefer the looks of the chrome ESC wheel and thought about changing unless there are reasons not to. thanks

    Any of that series of wheels will interchange. The equivalent tire for the 17" Seville and 2003 CTS wheels is a 235/55/17 tire. The outside diameter of the original 16" and 17" tires is 27", +/- 0.2". The rim spacing is 7.5" with a ~50mm offset, 5 X 115 bolt pattern, 3/4" hex lug nut on a 12 X 1.5 stud.

    Take your original tire size off the driver's door sticker and bounce around in www.tirerack.com to find different tire size specs that will interchange.

    A set of 2003 CTS 17" wheels would also fit just fine. I scored some on the Internet for $300 - all 4. (No !!!)

    Thanks Submariner and vincentm. My ETC currently has an almost new set of 235/60/16's. Will those fit the ESC wheel as well eventhough the recommended size is 225/60/16?

    Sure - the TireRack specs for THAT tire will give you the rim width spread - as long as the rim is within the tire allowance you will be fine. Because of the section width difference you MIGHT have a tiny bit of speedo error already - compare the outside diameter of the newer 235/60 with the OEM 225/60.
