This is my first post and I wanted to first say hello to all. I've been lurking around her for a while as my son just sold is Lincoln LS8 and bought an 05 CTS-V. Great car. And although I'm a pretty firm die hard Supercharged Ford guy, after driving his car, I am seriously considering one for myself. What a nice sedan.

One oversight from Cadillac I just can't get over is the lack of a spare. C'mon...run flats or not...put a spare in the thing! But since they didn't, we will. I read the great write up for that in the FAQ section. My question to all you is...can an 18" SRX wheel be used for a spare? It's a half inch narrower (8"), but the same bolt pattern, same 18" diameter. I have been searching like crazy and can't get an answer. I have seen offset specs from 40mm to 52mm. I had one guy tell me he thought the hub diameter was different. I can find take off and used SRX wheels all over the place cheap...so I would like to use one if at all possible.

If this has been addressed in another thread somewhere, I apologize...but I really did search a lot for this! Thank you for your help and I look forward to a long and interesting relationship with all you folks here.

The lack of a spare is frustrating but hopefully a flat tire is a rare event and this will become a rare aggravation

unfortunatley, no, the SRX wheel will not be a suitable spare because it will not clear the calipers. This has been discussed before but there really isn't a suitable alternative right now. Best bet is to buy a spare rim (from our classifieds) and throw a tire on it..

You can also buy a spare tire kit from Lindsay Cadillac =======>

I'll take it. Sorry, I wasn't around for a few days. If you still want to split them up, I'm in for one. Just give me your paypal address.

Whitedevil has been in Mod Hell and he's probably on a road somewhere looking for his inner fender liner. :D
