    A couple of thoughts: what do YOU think, and, you shouldn't have been 'talked' into anything; they should be what you want. Personally I like the 'stock' factory look; but if you take my advise (from the previous statement I made), it doesn't make any difference what I like.

    thanks for the input. i actually do like them. but buying new wheels is expensive and im having trouble committing. i would hate to buy these wheels only to hate them and regret my decision. i guess im just looking for a little assurance from the memebers on here.

    Post a pic of your car and a pic of the wheel (standing, face out) and ask someone to do a quick photoshop. If you provide the right pictures, it might take someone who knows photoshop 5 minutes.

    I look at the WIDE open gaps in the rim, and think about how difficult/impossible it will be to keep them clean on the inside of the wheel.

    I like wheels that look more substantial. But it's your car, enjoy.

    I personally like staggered with a nice deep lip in the back but the new concave look is HOTT too. Are they 20 or 22? Just FYI whatever u choose, if ur going staggered & want an aggressive look u can stuff an 11 inch wide with a 295 under the back with no rub.

    Yup, and that's what I have on the front of mine with a 22x9. Also my car is lowered about an inch.

    Does not look like it will blend well with a Cadillac.

    Re: New Wheels tomorrow! your thoughts on these...

    thanks again for all the replies. the wheels will be staggered. 20x8.5 in front, 20x10 in back. and im a big fan of the concave look.
    we test fitted a rear tired with a 285/30/20 tire, and it looked as if it may rub only if i had a full car and hit a rather large bump. we tried getting the suspension low enough to see if it would rub, but we werent able to. so im sure it will be fine. the test fit was with another rim tho, same size and offset.

    to amunderdog. i agree with you, im not sure if it will look good on the caddy either. thats why ive been looking everyday for 2 months. i cant seem to find anything im confident will look good... any suggestions?

    Can never go wrong with a nice 5-6 spoke concave rim on the CTS. I'm in the 2011 CTS coupe and ordered the Lexani R-six in a 20'... Can't wait till they are here! I think your rims would look nice and clean. But them! Haha
