Hi

Simple question really,

Will these 17" rims from a STS fit my 04 CTS without problems?

I found it quite hard to find a CTS compatible 17" rim for a decent price here in Europe...

PS: How did the the optional CTS 17" factory alloys look like? Because I am only finding the 16" ones which I have as well

Thanks

Should bolt right on, they used the same 17's on the STS and CTS...actually have my CTS 17's in the garage with winter rubber on them, will be going on the STS in a few months in place of the 18's that came on it.

Should be identical 5x115's

Someone else should be able to verify for sure though.

I had them on my car. The rear STS tires won't work, to wide. I can't remember what size tires I had but they do work.

The OEM 18's on my STS came staggered with 255's in the rear and 235's in the front, dunno if the 17's came staggered or not.

Hmmm.... so which 18 rims were were sold as stock for the CTS?
PS: i mean rims... tires would be fitted accordingly to what the cts allows

The sts wheel comes in a staggered set up 17x7.5 in the front and 17x8 in the back. The tires are staggered accordingly. The staggered setup came with the sports/performance(?!?) package. The regular set even all around is out there, you just have to find them.

Ok... honestly i am a little confused... does the staggered set have the same appearance as the even one? Can you tell which one is on the photo ?

Thanks to all for helping

So the seller informed me that all 4 are same size... looks promising...
Btw, the correct width for me is 7 or 7,5?
Thanks

The OEM wheel width is 7.5 for the 17" wheels and 7 for the 16" wheels.

all looks ok, the rims should be heading to me in the next coouple days/weeks,
Price all together with shipping around $350 for all 4 pieces, quite a miracle for that price, at least here...

Next step will be to get them painted black to match the color of my CTS

Unfortunately not on my car, since I put my summer set of tires on them, in winter I have the 16" inch rims with mandatory winter tires (it's the law here)
anyway, I found quite enough pictures on the web
