/////////////////////////////////////////////////

I'll start this story with what most people including me think is the most interesting part: the wheels. I called this chapter in my "sandwich story" the bacon because fitting low offset 20s on a CC can easily result in "Bacon fenders". Urban dictionary is a bit slow so I'll define it as best I can.
Bacon Fenders: The result of being too low while turning and smashing wheel and fender resulting in bacon-like dents along said fender. May result in "scene points". Sorry, I have no definition for that one :laugh:

Once upon a time...
Test fit on stock suspension... Uh oh.

Stayed positive and thought maybe after airride, it'll camber in enough to make fender and lip meet.
Nope.

So maybe a little negative camber will do it.
Nope. Maxed out at -3.8

So here I am now. Dropped off the wheels at Perfect Metal Finishes for a much needed lip repolish and having the back pad milled :eek:


Random pick drop:




This shot was before all the work to get the wheels to tuck but I still love this shot because my boy AKdub914 took it in this prime location. I'll have to revisit once the R-Line pieces are on.

The front tires are 245/30/20 and the rears are 225/35/20 because the fronts have so much room and the rears can barely tuck. Looking to sell the 245s and buy a set of four 225/35/20 Nitto NT NeoGens for decent stretch and because their designed for camber, or so they say.

Looking really nice so far man.


I am about to bag my CC myself, what set up are you running? and any pics of the way your management is set up in the trunk? I can't decide what i want to do, but I've gotta incorporate a sub in there some where too and i really love the look of a half sunk tank.

Went to Staggered. Pre-registered but they didn't honor it and gave away my spot. Didn't care about trophies, just wanted good parking, ended up at the end of the driving range. Still had a good time with friends and family.

This might be perfect
it's daily driven so far from perfect but thanks none the less :beer::)

Where did you get that USB "button" for the center console? Is it integrated with your radio or just a charging port?
I had a friend Chris (search Enfig Car Stereo) install a Dension unit w/bluetooth audio streaming and iphone compatibility to replace the limited factory bluetooth. He than custom cut and glued a female USB into a blank so I can have any usb device charge/play. Really handy for long trips like NJ to GA for SoWo!
