You need a smaller upper pulley now for sure cause that clearance is too close.

It's probably a 3mm gap

Very close but it works, definitely gonna keep an eye on it till the upper pulley comes in.

Fun is an understatement, car makes me giggle daily..

I know I sound like a broken record but the V community is the icing on the cake. Just non stop & it just sucks you in with ease

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I was planning to grab some rear wheels off a V coupe since they are the widest OEM V wheel & with a much lower offset than sedan wheels. Wasn't really on the radar anytime soon since they aren't very common & are decently priced when they do pop up for sale.

As always, the V community strikes again & in my local V Facebook page, another member found a set available for a real great price about an hourish away. I missed out on them since they were gone in hours since the price was too good to pass up but to my surprise, I get a msg the next day. The msg was from buddy who snagged them & he msged to apologize for sniping them since he knew I had my eye out for coupe rear wheels. I just lol'd since it really wasn't a big deal & never thought anything of it. This is where the V community really shines, buddy offered to straight up trade the coupe rears for a pair of my wheels since I'm running sedan rears all around. A pair of my wheels would complete his setup since he just wanted an OEM sedan setup for drag radials & had no use for the 19x10's.

Sorry for the short story, just had to share just how great this community is.

Cliff notes:

- snagged a pair of coupe rear wheels for 45 bucks (price to dismount/remount tires)
- no more 15mm spacer in the rear
- V community > *

Here's a quick shitty pic I got before my phone died, better pics to come.

I know right.

Having fun in a CTS-V! Doing burnouts in a CTS-V! Modding and gaining power in a CTS-V! And sharing photos and mods of your CTS-V with AZine!

Who would stop doing so much fun!??!?!?!

That's awesome. Never heard of the buyer calling you after the sale lol!

Yeah getting those wider OEM wheels makes complete sense. I may be in minority but I never felt comfortable with the idea of doing wheel spacers (another point of failure/weakness just to look better/wider stance) so always great when you have an OEM solution!!!

I had 15mm spacers on and even after a short amount of miles they were near impossible to get off...I torqued to spec...I'm a seasoned mod guy...I mean...just a fucking no go for me...settled on slide on 6MM and may or may not have gone 157 with those in Mejico
Anyway, Coupe rears look fucking perfect!

I can still do doughnuts and burnouts in the S2000!
It was basically a purely cost driven decision...which is never good.
I'll get another one or something else with power down the line.

Ok I really need to do this. That looks great. So coupe rears on rear and sedan rears on the front right?

Once I can figure out how to get my seized on spacers off without costing me a whole new hub

Yea coupe rears w/sedan rears on the front. The coupe rears are on 265's for the winter but I think I can pull off 275's to retain this ride height for the summer, maybe a slight roll if anything.

Before I left home to make the swap, I got the car in the air to make sure the spacers wouldn't be an issue and they came right off..

Do you go sideways a lot?
Because it's frigid and rainy for you maybe the lateral forces didn't do as much for me.
I didn't go cheap either...I think they were eibach.
