Hey guys and gals, another upgrade to the aurora. I just recently purchased some 18 inch alloy wheels for my aurora. Ive been looking for some 18s for a while now so I won't have to put on those hideous stock 16s back on and so I don't have to ride on my 20s during the winter. They are replica cadillac wheels and have a good 90% tread on the tires. Got them from a dude I found online who says he took them off his cadillac ats. I did my research so I am positive they will bolt on with no problem. They are staggered, so wider tires for the back. Anyways, they are in perfect shape because the guy works at a wheel shop and gave them a fresh coat. Also in the pics you'll see the cadillac logo center cap in black, I purchased an all silver/ alloy center cap to make the look clean. I will post pictures once I put them on. Let me know what you guys think.
225/40-18 is 1.5 inches shorter than the OEM 225/60-16...
Like sall said, it'll work, but it will throw the speedo off a bit and look small in the wheel opening.
I'd run 245/45-18s all around...
So the only way to avoid the speedo issue is to run the 245/45/18s? My only problem is that I was trying to avoid buying brand new tire seperatley and since these came with like new tires I thought I'd be good. I'll consider the 245/ 45s after testing out the mounted ones for a while. Thanks for the info. Is there any other method to get around the issue without replacing tires.

Here they are bolted on. Smooth ride and clean look. As you guys noted, they do throw my speedo off by 2-3 mph. Is there any way to fix this without changing tires? Let me know what you guys think of this setup.
They look pretty dang good, tigger was right though, little bit of excess space in the wheel wells
Yea that extra space is more noticeable in the front. Thinking about going to a tire shop and trading for a set of decent 245/45/18 tires. Unless I can get away with just changing the fronts to 245/40/18 like the rear?
