Five grand for wheels that will cost a fifth of that when the aftermarket replicates them. Normally I understand all the decisions GM makes, and agree with them. This one, in my honest opinion, is an option sheerly for people with more money than sense or patience. No offense to anyone.

EDIT: Plus, no performance oriented car should have 21's.

I'll buy after market once I figure out just how much meat will fit inside the rear wheel wells, hoping with offset will be able to get 305's or 315's.

Was thinking, since I am get IMO with Black Rally stripes perhaps in keeping with the Halloween color scheme I'd get these Name:  JJ BlackWidow-M.jpg

its not like your paying 5,000 for 1 more inch. you are buying a whole new set of wheels and tires. you get both sets if you buy the 21's. the 21's and you still keep the 20's. its not a trade and 5,000. its not really that bad of a deal concidering 18" factory wheels for a cadillac cost about 800 a piece not including tires. and they are covered under warranty. i havent added them to my order but i am concidering it.

I'm going the other way. I'm getting the smallest wheel available while still being able to sport the big brakes.
