Im thinking rather seriously of putting the bc racing coil overs on my 08 cts rwd. Ive read that the bc's are comparable to the kb? coil overs that run about $2499 but the bc's are like $995. so im wondering who has used them and thier overal quality. I like that it woould be adjustable and am curious as to what my recommended tire size would be with 20 inch rims so that nothing rubs over bumps or when turning. I have access to a set of 20 inch bbs but the tires are like 275/60/r20 and that sounds like its pushin it to the limits although i have read that there are less limitation with not having the awd. thoughts? advice? thanks

I think i have attached a photo of a users vehicle on here that I thought looked great. IMG_1473.jpg
the other one that i see a lot on here is the thunder grey cts lowered with vogue vtxi body kit and silver six spoke rims i think.

I'm assuming you mean KW, not kb? And no, they're not comparable. Which is not to say that the BC Racing stuff won't work on your car and be just fine, but the quality of materials and the quality of the dampers is reflective of the price.

"Pushin it to the limits"? That's a truck tire, man! The "less limitation with not having the AWD" isn't going to make a tire that's 6" too tall fit your car. And if those are the tires on the wheels, I have to think the 20" wheels you have access to are not at all correct to fit your CTS. Do you know any of the specs of the wheels?
