Hi I have a 2005 CTS and I really like the 2013 CTS-V OEM rims!! And I was just wondering if they would fit on my CTS, since it doesn't really matter on the number of lugs the car has. Does anyone know?

I don't know where you got that picture, but that's not a 2013 CTS-V; it's not even a real car. It appears to be a coupe based on the '14+ CTS.

How does the number of lugs not matter for wheel fitment? :confused:

I got that picture of Google and it was the first picture I saw with the rims I like. I do not know what I meant about the lugs :p

But by the way, do you guys know if the 05 cts, has tire sensors?

I wouldnt get those but that is me i prefer a 20. The cts honestly doesnt handle bad on a 20, ive got a really stiff suspension though i cringe on every pothole but in all honesty if you get some decent wheels and tires you will not have anything to worry about. I need a staggard pair for the back in the summer im gonna squeeze a 20x10 maybe 275-285 in back. I got 245 35s on all 4s, which is close to what stock gen1 v had except 19s 245 40 and i ****ing smoke tires. But i still got WAAYYY better grip than stock 225s cause i have a 2004 sport lux that had the 17in chrome those are gone though.

Btw no the 2004-07 cts doesnt have tire sensors at least my 04 sport lux doesnt idk if maybe there is a chance if you have the newer gauge cluster cause they changed it in 05-06 cts

Close. V1s had 245/45-18s from the factory.

It might have been better to say, "My '04 doesn't, but I don't know if the later model years had them," rather than starting your response with a definite, "No, they don't have TPMS sensors." In fact, the later models do have optional TPMS - option code UJ6, which I don't think was available until '06.

TPMS wasn't available unless your car was manufactures on and after Oct. 2006. Thats when the government passed that law requiring manufactures to include TMPS sensors on all vehicles in the US.

It's a little misleading. I had tpms on my 04 srx. But as you said. Cars went required since late 06. Doesn't mean they didn't have them before then

- TPMS was available on cars, including the CTS platform, before the government mandated it. My 2005 CTS-V has it as standard equipment, for instance.
- The law didn't go into effect in Oct 2006; it started to go into effect a year earlier than that.
- Vehicles manufactured in or after Oct 2006 would have been model year 2007, yet you can find plenty of threads in this forum with 2006 CTS owners asking about their TPMS systems.

I was behind the wheel and I found that i haven't looked into the other side, which is something I will do today after work, but what is that? I know something should be connected right there, but I haven't found anything online, maybe you guys know something about it? Sensor? I don't know, by the way I'm not a mechanic, I'm just a do it yourself tip of guy.

As josney said, that's the plug for the ABS wheel speed sensor coming out of the hub at that corner of the car. With that unplugged you should have an ABS light on at all times and the car should give you a "Service Antilock Brake System" and/or "Service Stability Control System" message when you turn it on. Do you have those indications?

Yes I do have the light on! Woow I though I would never find the problem, and would have to pay big bucks. I do have the abs light on, and what is the sensor called?

The sensor is the wheel speed sensor, and on these cars it is part of the wheel bearing / hub assembly. The sensor may be fine; you won't know until you plug it in. The sensor should be plugged into a wiring harness that runs alongside the parking brake cable. I don't have any pics showing where it plugs in, but here you can see the parking brake cable running diagonally across the picture, and the wiring harness (with the ribbed plastic sheathing) clipped to it.



If that harness isn't there, you have a bigger problem. If it is there, plug in the sensor and see if you get the ABS light to clear. If it doesn't clear, then see if you can get the code pulled (to verify it is just that one sensor that is bad), and then you'll have to replace that rear hub / wheel bearing assembly.

I actually took the wheel off and found the sensor unplugged. Plugged it in and the abs sensor went off, I guess the last mechanic I went to didn't so I will come back! I also replaced the sway bar, which was why I took the wheel off! Thank you guys!! You guys are the best!! Appreciate it!!
