    Hey - It's all good info and one of these days (I just rotated the original #4564 STS chrome 17's 2 weeks ago) I'll pull a wheel off the car and look at the size/casting numbers.

    I'll send an e-mail to the guys up at www.wheelcollision.com asking for the #4564 offset - if it comes back at 51mm then we're all in the same ballpark.

    the offset is definitely measured in millimeters

    OK - Here's the word from the horse's mouth - via e-mail from www.wheelcollision.com in Bath, PA late this PM.

    Our offset for the H#4564 and similar Seville/Aurora/early CTS wheels is 51mm. (Within a whisker of 2")

    As I run across my earlier posts claiming a 40mm offset I will change that to reflect this information. (5mm is almost exactly 0.2", so about 25mm = 1")

    Thanks Sub! I really appreciate you looking into it. I'm so happy I can get the wheels I want now!

    Thanks to Chris and everyone else who helped get to the bottom of this!

    Thanks Sub! I actually looked into the black chrome process based on some of your other posts. If I'm not able to get brand new OEM chrome wheels at a decent price, I will definitely consider getting black chrome wheels from wheelcollision. I bet they would look mean on my Black STS

    FWIW, Gorilla makes a hardened aluminum racing lug nut in black - #44137BK, 12 x 1.5 size, torque to 100 lb/ft in a star sequence.

    Here they are on a red/black STS with stock 17 chromes and Cooper CS4-V tires.............the center caps are black semi-gloss 2003 CTS pieces.......
