Today, my dealership changed out my headlights for me because of the peeling and while there we were chatting and they said they had a set of take-off XLR rims.

The rims are chrome and 18x8 , 5 lug pattern.

Anyone know if these will fit a CTS?

Nope, they won't. They're standard Chevy lug pattern (5 x 4.75"), ours are 5 x 115mm, which is closer to the Ford pattern of 5 x 4.5" (114.3mm). The XLR is built along side the Corvette in Bowling Green, Kentucky, which explains why.

that explains why the XLR and Corvette are the same in many ways.

Well, that sucks. I was hoping they would fit. Pretty good deal for a full set of rims. I did notice it said 18x8x61

so the offset was wrong.

I think they'll fit with some modification. I remember someone on the forum had a set of XLR rims on his CTS.
