I found a deal on a used set of standard cts wheels and tires off a 2012 coupe awd. Does anyone know if they will fit. Plans are to use them for winter use

Brake fitment is an issue I believe. Could be wrong. Test fit.

So I tried on wheel on the front. It bolts right up and hits the front of the caliper. I wonder if wheel shims would allow it to fit. Not sure I want to use shims though

Found another set off a 2016. Looked up the offset and it says 18x8.5 with a 32mm offset. Can anyone confirm that they will fit our calipers?

I'm of the opinion they will not clear the calipers.

Deal fell through. All three tires were the same except one. One tire was a different size which makes no sense and would probably cause abs issues

Well I’m of the opinion that it would look like shit on a V. But, I’m all about aesthetics #Justsayin

Agree that the wheels would not compliment the car at all. Was just trying not to spend 1k or more on a winter set

If you want cheap wheels, I have some ugly ones that came with my V with winter tires.I replaced them when I needed new winter tires. They're a square setup.

Agreed on the ugly factor. Thanks for the offer. I will have to pass for couple reasons. Ugliness and distance. I am planning on getting a set of 18” mb crux on discount tire. Need to make sure they will clear the calipers
