We first introduced you to Kyle M and his CTS-V a few months ago when we installed a set of Eibach Pro-Kit Springs for Cadillac CTS-V.
Eibach Springs, by overwhelming majority, seem to be the preferred choice of V-owners everywhere, as this is the same setup as Co-Founder Mike Brown’s CTS-V, Hunter Swift’s Targa Trophy Rally-Runner CTS-V and that beastly 700+hp CTS-V wagon, Whiplash, from last week. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen a CTS-V on anything else here at the shop, come to think of it.
We knew back then a set of new wheels was in order, and today was the day to make that happen. To give Kyle’s CTS-V the perfect accent, a special semi-clear Blue paint would be applied to the calipers. Caliper painting is one of the services we offer here at ModAuto, and with Sr Tech Dave‘s attention to detail, we knew we could expect an amazing end result.
After a few hours, Dave pulled back the painters tape and gave us a look at the finished product. Take a look at that. I mean wow, there really isn’t a word for that besides “sexy.” I really have to take my hat off to Dave, not only did he do an insane job on these, but he pulled it off on one of the hottest days we’ve ever had.
While we were under the car, we couldn’t help but notice the axle-back exhaust for CTS-V with blacked out mufflers and tips, which appears to be a Stainless Works Axle-Back Exhaust for CTS-V.
The stock wheels went bye bye, and on went the Forgestars.
Mike set Kyle up with the same Forgestar fitment he rocks on his own personal CTS-V –Forgestar CF10s in semi-gloss black. Actual gloss black scratches super easy, so semi-gloss is the preferred finish for a glossy black wheel that’s easy to care for.
CF10s are rotary forged flow formed, meaning they’re a strong and lightweight wheel that can perform while still looking great. The Semi-Gloss Black Powdercoat ties in beautifully with the blacked out trim and dark look Kyle has going on.
You know, I could go on and on and on telling you in words how great this combination looked, but I think you’d rather I let the pictures do the talking. Check out the angles on how the combination of wheels, a drop, exhaust, painted calipers, tint and carefully selected accents to see how it all came together for yourself, and I think you’ll agree, this setup is badass by any standard.
We know, these are a lot of different angles, but you need to look at this car from all the angles to appreciate how beautifully the fitment came together.
Even from a distance, Dave’s awesome work painting the calipers semi-clear blue really makes for an incredible accent against the black CF10s.
I really enjoyed shooting this sharp CTS-V really ‘come together’ today and hope we keep seeing more V’s in the future.
