I am looking for the size of the V-Series rims. I need the Height, Width, Offset, and Bolt Pattern. Front & Rear if they differ.

Thanks.

wheel fitment

If you want 20's, the best fitment is 245/40/20 in front, and 275/35/20 in rear. The only problem is no one makes runflats in this size. If runflats are what you are looking for with 20's, you will need 245/35/20 in front, 285/30/20 in rear, but these tires leave a lot of wheel well.

Front = 20X8.5 +38mm offset
Rear = 20X9 or 20X9.5 +47-49mm offset

The rear is a hard fitment for 20s. After 4 trys with Asanti AF-135 chrome, the best fitment without the tires rubbing in any way (275/35/20) is 20X9 with +49 offset.

After market wheels look great on the XLR-V, and I seem to have a lot more response and questions with these wheels on compared to the factory wheels.

Your right on with this. Put after market rims on any car and it just gets better looking by 50%.
You can also lower the V by 1" using the lower bolts on each corner of the car. I did this, but raised it back up because the ride got very hard. probably like a Vette. You have to have it re-aligned after each event which gets expensive.
