General Motors has announced that the 2011 CTS Sport Sedan and CTS Sport Wagon will offer a new 19-inch all-season tire and wheel package that uses carbon fiber in the tire”s sidewall to provide responsive handling in a range of conditions.
Previously, the 19-inch wheels were only available with summer tires on these models.
GM said that the 19-inch Goodyear Eagle RS-A2 all-season tire is available on the 3.6-L V6 performance and premium models of the 2011 CTS Sport Sedan and CTS Sport Wagon. The option will cost a total of $850 over the standard 18-inch wheel.
The move comes as more consumers demanded larger wheels but wanted the versatility of an all-season tire. The accommodate the new wheels and tires, GM made some suspension changes to the 2011 Cadillac CTS so that performance was maintained.
