An aggressive or minimal fender roll? Wheel offsets? Stock suspension or lowered?

Do a search on this site for remedies.
I believe CTS-V sedan wheels are the preferred fit on our cars as they are not staggered where the CTS-V coupe wheels are a staggered set.
Plenty of threads on here about owners in your situation.

Lose the 10" 40 offset in favor of the sedan 9.5" 56 offset ?
That will gain you 23mm on the outside.
If you just gotta have the "hella flush " you could space the sedan rim out if you really needed to .
285 is OK on 9.5 as per most tire specs from their manufacturers
Correctly spaced, a 285 fits with no fender work

Not really sure what aggressive or minimal would be I just know they were rolled and I don’t know how much the the last owner lowered it 🤔

Here is a thread showing a crap load of G8s with 285's on sedan rear 19-9.5 56 offset

Even in the weeds, the tires clear

Aggressive or minimal is the degree/severity to which the fenders were rolled. By the way, there are at least two threads where members installed CTS-V coupe wheels albeit am thinking the cars were riding at stock height.
