Alright, so my mom just got a 06 black cts and the stock wheels have winter tires on them so she wants something for the summer. The car is completely stock and will remain that way besides the wheels. i am looking for your suggestions and what you think will look best for stock ride height. i don't want anything black, or bigger than 20's. Its my mom i'm not trying to make her look hood. haha thanks

Remember that as the wheel size increases:

The wheel cost increases (on many wheels)
The tire cost increases drastically--especially when you get to 19s.
The change for cracked/damaged wheels increases (because of the loss of tire height between the wheel and the ground).

Besides, very few people will know she has 16s versus 17s or 18s. When they do notice, she is likely to be going 45 mph or more. Even then, those noticing don't even have the time to pull out a tape measure.

Buy her a real spare instead. Someday, you will need it.

i say grab a nice clean set of stock 17s or a nice set of 18s. anything bugger than that is pointless and she wont like.
im running 20s on my cts, i had 17s stock and 18s just before the 20s. personally i like the ride on 20s the best(also looks) but for everyday around town 17 or 18
