    Wheel Question and Opinion

    Should be picking up my 11 Black on Black STS on Thursday. I was at first looking to find the chrome CTS-V 18" OEM wheels from the 04-07, but they only have the chrome exchange on ebay and seem to be hard to find. I stumbled upon the Vogue CV7 and they look something similar, just debating weather to get them in 18" or 20". I had 20"s on my 05 CTS years ago and it looked great and rode good. Leaning towards the 20's because the STS is bigger and i think the 20"s look better. Heres a pic of the 20"s on a black STS. What do you guys think? Can get the Vogue 20"s with tires for $1,800.

    Appearance vs. Ride.

    I vote ride.

    Love the wheels, not a fan of that low profile a tire though. Is that a body kit I see?

    ^^^ yeah that is the EGX bodykit.
    Not sure if they made it for 08 models... if not I think you can still do the sideskirts only on the 08+

    Rims are nice on this car.

    20" wheels/skinny tires = "Look what I got !"

    18" wheels, high performance tires = "Man, this thing handles great !"

    Still mulling it. The 18s are only around 300$ cheaper with tires. These will just be for the late spring/summer. Leaning towards the 20s.

    I have seen quite a few used STSs with the 04-07 18" OEM CTS V Wheels in chrome. These look pretty close to them.

    This is what came on my '07, I think the 20's would take too much away from the Caddy ride honestly.

    Those are what i originally wanted but its hard to find the chrome CTS V Wheels for sale at a good price. So unless a set pops up on ebay i may just go with the vogue cv7 20". I had 20"s on my 05 CTS and the ride wasnt really that bad
