Just 4 rears, probably going to run 235/45/18s instead of the OEM 225/50/18s.

He gave me extra vinyl stickers. One more set of the silvers, 2 sets of blacks, and a set of reds. If you or anyone else gets a set I'd be willing to sell off some of them.......

Would you care to measure and post the dimensions of the overlays? I'd like a set for my MSR wheels.

They're 2 1/4" circles. Pics of stock center cap for comparison.

Aright cool. When I find a tape measure I'll go out and check mine. I think I'd prefer black, but what do the red ones look like?

RP member arttu80 has these on his roadmaster wagon. I'd love to see them on a riv, like here on this super ultra deluxe extra professional phone photoshop I did wink

^^^^ not a bad chop at all. 5 star wheels are muscle to the max and they always look great on the Riv.

I tried pulling the Cragars off of our Camaro and putting them on, but there wasn't enough offset. Need spacers.

They're the old school universal ones. They slid over the wheel studs but not all the way down to the hub because they hit the caliper.

Anyone know how much factory wheel (not the chrome ones) and tire weighs?

Got 48 pound wheel+tire combos on the way.

Thanks for that!

Dang. I was hoping to be closer to stocker weight

Mine combo is 17.7lb wheel + 28lb tire = 45.7lb cry

Hey Matt would they be the 18x7? Because I was thinking of these Bonneville gxp wheels but I think they are 18x8. Would they work?

The Bonneville wheels look slightly different, but they will work just fine. All GXPs had 18x8 in the front 18x7 in the rear. The 18x8s have a different offset (22mm?) than the 18x7s (55mm?) so it brings them out. You would probably like the 18x8s a lot better than the 18x7s because they will end up a lot flusher to the fenders. GP guys have been running GXP 18x8s all around for years without issue, so you'll be fine.

That's good news , thanks Matt. I wasn't sure if it made a difference with the rims hitting the caliper because of the offset. My buddy smashed his 04 Bonnie gxp and gave me a rim and 3 tires so I'm going to start hunting on ebay

Yep, they'll clear just fine. The 18x8s SHOULD also clear the Brembo 4 pistons off of the CTS-V, as well as the 6 pistons if you use a spacer. It might not be a bad idea to grab the spare from his GXP because it is bigger and has more clearance than our stock spare in case you ever decide to go bigger. His front brakes will also bolt right up and use a 12.7" rotor VS the stock 11.9" as well as a dual piston caliper VS the stock single piston. However, these brakes will not clear the OEM Rivi wheels/spare.
