2015 PP Wheels on 2014 V6 base

I LOVE the look of the S550 Performance pack wheels. After looking on AM, I think the replica PP wheels would look great on my S197. I have the base V6 manual 2014. Is it possible to fit 19x9.5 on the front and 19x10 on the back? Also what size tires would I need to be able to fit the wheels? I have a friend that would be willing to sell his OEM PP wheels to me for a great price. Iíve been reading so many contradicting things that iím just confused at this point, so any help would be great! Thanks guys.

Yes those wheels will fit fine on your car. The standard tire sizes are 255/40 and 275/40. You could change the tire sizes up a bit if you want - 275/35 front and 285/35 rear. You'll need to use your TPMS sensors as the 15+ ones don't sync with our cars.

Actually are you getting the replicas or the OEM ones? The OEM are 19x9 and 19x9.5, I'm pretty sure. I'd just run the 255/275 combo on those. If you do the 19x9.5/10 replicas, I'd go 275/285.

I was seeing about getting OEM wheels instead of replicas. Are the OEM 19x9 and 19x9.5 or 19x9.5 and 19x10? Looking on American Muscle, the widest replicas they have for the front wheels is 19x8.5, which caused me to wonder if I'd be able to fit a wider wheel on the front without having to get spacers or modify any of the suspension/brake components.

OEM are 19x9/9.5; I double checked after I posted. If you can get OEM, I'd just do that. Or you can run the replica 19x10s front and rear and do a square setup with some 285/35 all around...

Just too many options... I think I'd rather go with OEM but 19x10s would look pretty good all around too.. Either way thanks for your help

be aware, the S550 (2015+) wheels are not exactly right for S197 (2014-) cars

The offsets are a little different; pretty sure the S550 uses less offset, which means the tires will "stick out" a bit more than they should on S197 car . . . some like this look, some don't . . . in an extreme case, it could be a clearance problem

the studs are different, which just means you need S197 lug nuts, S550 lug nuts will not work on S197 car

also the TPMS sensors are different -- S550 TPMS will not work in S197 car

also I believe the center bore is different -- S550 is bigger, so the S550 wheel will go on, but will not hub center on an S197 car

None of these are "show stoppers" so you "can" use S550 wheel on S197 car; but personally I would rather use an S197 wheel where everything is right . . . if you are looking at replicas that are designed for S197 car, then no issue; but if you are taking OEM wheels from a S550 car and putting them on an S197, you should be aware of the above

Seems like replicas would be a lot easier after reading more into it.. maybe that's a good thing since they'll be cheaper anyway!

Actually the S550 OEM wheels have pretty close offsets to the S197 wheels, if not higher, meaning they tuck more. V6/EB/GT wheels that is. GT350 wheels have lower offsets because of the wider front fenders on the GT350. Otherwise yes, you need to use S197 lugs and TPMS. I'm not sure on the CB being different off hand, but that's not a big deal if the S550 CB is bigger.

The reps being 19x10 +48, I'd just run those front and rear and do a square setup. Just be aware though, the reps are cheap for a reason. You get what you pay for. If you run into balancing or finish issues, just know they're low cost cast wheels that aren't up to the same quality standards as OEM.
