Hi-

Let me start off by saying that I searched the forum for the answers to these questions FIRST, before posting, but I couldn't find the exact answers I was looking for which is why I am posting here. Anyway, I like the stock OEM wheels (OEM means stock Cadillac wheels right?) and want to purchase a second set of 4 wheels for the snow tires I will be purchasing.

1) The stock tires that my CTS V comes with- are they not to be used in the snow at all? Or are they considered "all season" tires?

2) Where is a good place to look for new used CTS V wheels? I tried Ebay but the cheapest I could find for 4 was $1600! I saw the ONLY set on tirerack, but I'm not sure if I like their look better than the stock wheels.

3) If I call a few Cadillac dealers, what are they charging for wheels?

4) Can you put "non" run flat tires on the wheels? Do I need tire pressure sensors for the wheels?

5) Is there such a thing as run flat snow tires?

Again guys, thanks for your time!

If there are any dealers or memebers reading this, can you post here if you can give me a deal on new or used original CTS V wheels? I don't necessarily care if they're scuffed.

Welcome aboard!

1) No, absolutlely not. They are ultra high performance tires for dry conditions. Period.

2) The best place to find V wheels is this forum and Ebay. Peruse daily and often.

3) More than you will find elsewhere.

4) Yes. No, but you might as well.

5) No.

Hey guys, thanks for such quick answers. Stealth V, what exactly are "self supporting" tires vs. run flat tires? Are you happy with those Dunlop Wintersports? I saw on Tirerack.com that they were quite highly rated vs. its competitors.

Self-supporting is Dunlop speak for run-flats.

With the Wintersports, the V is acceptable in a few inches of snow. Anything more and leave it parked.

Continental may have winter run-flats as well...seem to recall GM using them during pre-production testing.

From the FAQ parts list, the 18x8.5" stock wheel is listed at part # 9595354, with an MSRP of $632.15 per wheel (w/o centercap), or lug nut caps. GM PartsDirect lists it as $397.95 (+shipping), per wheel.

I'm looking for at least one, and maybe 4 stock wheels myself, but they have been a bit more scarce on the forum. If anyone has any in good shape they'd care to sell for less, e-mail me at: [email protected].

No you do not need run flat tires however you do not have a spare and no you do not need tire pressure sensors however you will have a message at the D.I.C

After running without TPS for ~50 miles the DIC message will go away and full control over the stability system is regained.

Dave : end plug. :)

Dave,
Would you be willing to split them up? Please :) I'd like one wheel (and the tire if you will let it go - the wife curbed one of my wheels pretty bad) for a spare...when I switch to non-run flats. I'm in MD - Mont. Co. and will do pick-up to save the shipping
TIA,
Crispy

PS: sorry for the hi-jack
