:tisk: Nice looking, not sure about using on a CTS. You'd spend the rest of your life keeping them clean.

Those are actually really nice. I haven't seen a rim like that. It may look overdone or too intricate given that they are 18's (exposed lug nuts, rivets...). But if they where 20's everything would fit together nicely. It reminds me of some wheels I found on a Ferrari 360 Modeno.

They would look perfect if you went with 245/40/18. A lot of people go with 45 series tires and 18's which makes the rims look smaller.

For that price, I would jump on them. You may be able to get them mounted, balanced and with a decent tire for around 850-950 dollars if you shop around for tires!

Anything with studs (fake or real) are a pain to keep clean especially chrome. Plus it looks too "busy", IMO, but I'm fan of clean simple appearance on cars.

I agree as I've been there, done that and sold them. I finall found an 18" rim that requires minimum maintenance.:yup:

For 18's go with a 245/45/18 (Which is the tire size the OEM 18's come with) or 245/40/18 if you want a lower profile tire.

With whether one it'll look great, good luck.

Post up some pics once the rims and tires are mounted.

thanks man im not sure which one of those to go with yet
If you originally had OEM 17" wheels and went to 18" you want 245x45x18" tires to keep the electronics and odometer correct. 40 series won't accomplish that.

But if you had 16" OEM, 40 series should be fine, so long as the overall Diameter is the same you are good to go.

Same diameter is the key. I have a set of 235x40x17" that I had for a short time. They just look to small on the CTS. They're setting in the garage along with my snow tires. I have the original 225x55x17" OEM wheels and tires in the basement.:bonkers:
