Has anyone run these on a 09+ CTS-V Sedan? Were there any fitment issues? Trying to decide on a 20" tire that won't spin too bad but i'm hoping someone else has tried this and determined if it works or not before I buy a set.

for this set of wheels/tires, spirited daily driving on the street
for the drag strip i will do the 18/17 weld rts setup with drag radials. but im wondering about the R888 for daily trim. I've had good luck with the R888 on other cars i've owned.

I second the noise, not very pleasant for highway driving.
I would be willing to accept some road noise in exchange for traction from a dig.

They will rub and be noisy.
Will they rub on the inside? or the outside? Would rolling the fenders make enough room? or are you saying even with rolled fenders it would still rub?

what about the same tire in 285/35ZR20?

I've run 888's on my V1 for road track duty only. So my input is a bit out of place on sizing, but should apply to noise, traction, etc. Did I mention tire wear ? :)

Ah, ok. I appreciate the input.
I have run this tire on other cars i've owned before, im really more concerned with the fitment, rubbing, etc

They will rub on the fenders for sure and I don't think rolling would help enough for that size. That is my opinion only of course, but it's at least reasonably educated.

in your opinion, do you think the 285/35ZR20 R888 would rub?

No I don't think they would. Remember too, your wheel offset can play a role in things. I widened an OEM front wheel by about 2 inches to run on the rear with a 305/30/19 with no problem rubbing on the outside, but I rubbed a teeny bit on the inside until a few "adjustments" were made. A 285 should be no problem at all with a proper offset though.

I could never run R888's for daily driving. They have to be the noisiest tire I have ever heard! For road racing they are a very good tire IMO.
