I've tried searching but couldn't find anything that was of use to me. I just put on a set of 18x8 Drag DR-37 wheels(8.5's were on backorder), 40 offset. Will these clear the 4-pot CTS-V calipers without needed longer studs and spacers? Thanks guys!

Actually I don't think I will....40mm offset=1.5''(slight more) which should give me plenty enough clearance...right?

It depends on rim design mate, offsets can't give you the full story on what will or wont work. Take the G8 19" wheels for example. Both the Sport GT and GXP rims have the same specs, 19x8", +48et. The GT 19" wheel will NOT fit over Brembos, while the GXP wheel will.

Indeed, forgot about that...damn it.

OK, can anyone with Drag DR-37's confirm whether they'll clear 4-pot CTS-V calipers?

It looks like a thread on Camaro5 show that the 18x8's will clear the SS calipers which means they'll clear the V's...can someone confirm?

For all intents and purposes, 1st gen CTS-V brakes are pretty much the same as the Camaro Brembos and G8 GXP Brembos. They'll fit.
