    Question 07-12 CTS-V Wheels on 98-04 STS

    Hey guys! This is my first time posting. I live and work in South Korea and have been considering buying my first Cadillac here. I am looking at the 1998-2004 model year of the Seville STS. I was curious if anyone knew if the 2007-2012 CTS-V wheels would fit on the Seville or if they would need a spacer to make the offset right. I do know that the wheels on both cars are 5
    lug pattern. All wheel that I found on eBay (take off wheels), reproduction wheel sites and even images of the CTS-V on
    Cadillac's website all show the same bolt pattern.

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    Won't work.........2003/4 CTS only, because they're the same bolt pattern, offset, center pilot sizes.

    Well shucks. Guess I will have to change up cars. Would they fit th 05-up STS? I think they would set off the car so much better than the stock STS-V rims.

    Re: 07-12 CTS-V Wheels on 98-04 STS

    Now you're in a totally different year and car group than the Sevilles. The 2005 and later "STS" is NOT a Seville and bears no resemblance to a real STS in any way, shape, or form. NOTHING from a 2005 and later RWD "STS" will fit a FWD Seville model.

    I'll move this up to the Forum for the car you are looking at.

    Sure 5x120 wheels always bolt to 5x115 hubs....

    No it won't work try a little research.

    I've looked on tirerack.com and they say that the 98-04 Seville can take up to a 20x9.5 wheel.

    Bolt pattern and rim size are completely different.

    Re: 07-12 CTS-V Wheels on 98-04 STS

    It's the PCD pattern that won't match up. As mentioned above, the CTS has 5x120 and the STS/Seville has 5x115. The bolt holes won't match up (the distance between lugs are different), it won't go in.

    It's pretty difficult to find Cadillacs in Korea. Do you speak Korean? Then I suggest you to join the Daum "Club Cadillac" cafe - it will have classifieds section and owner stories/local meets for Cadillac fans in Korea - mention maeng9981 and I will answer there!

    South Korea is a beautiful country with tons of fun roads to ride Cadillacs with.

    Thanks maeng9981 for the info. I'm gonna have to figure out how I can change it up or see how much it would cost to have some custom ones made for the Seville. Or would wheel adapters work? I don't speak Korean, but I can read and write, although I don't understand what all of it means yet. I'm a slow learner. Are there any English speakers on the Daum site? And yes, I do agree about the beautiful drives that Korea has.

    Unfortunately, it's kinda difficult to do anything in Daum site if you don't really speak Korean. so scratch that- I can help you here or through PM instead.

    It may be possible to convert the bolt pattern/PCD, either you use an adapter or you change the whole hub and stuff, but it's not advisable and sort of dangerous and not proven. Not to mention too much work.

    The best bet would be to just use a 5x115 aftermarket rims or some 05+ STS stock ones that are similar to the CTS-V wheels if there is one. The 98-04 Sevilles are sort of tuned to accept 16-17 inch runs and appropriate tires, any other would compromise the ride anyway. Not that they can't run it, they would be just awkward a little bit and the ride would get a bit harsh.
