Just out of curiousity I tried putting the Works on, slid right on until I realized I was having a dummy moment and the hub bore of the ATS is 73.1. Anyway still researching wheels.

Yea that's the plan. Never been big into CF but it's grown on me. Going to run it this way for now, then paint if when I'm ready for a change.
Those would look good on there. I can't understand GM's thought on just having to be different as far as lug patterns go. My Cosworth Vega uses a 4 on a 101.1 bolt pattern, versus the common 4 on a 100 pattern like Honda, VW, and Toyota use (I think Ford does too). Sure would make rim buying easier (larger tires are more available than 13's).

I do like the contrast on that spoiler the way it is, but I also like the all white... I'm torn

The plan is to get the lip kit which is white, then add CF splitters on the front and sides, and put a red pinstripe along those. So if all goes to plan then there will be more CF on the car than just the spoiler.

This is good, this idea. I did kind of want to do something more special with it than just leave it as is or paint it all white. This is better than my other idea.

Me neither. My wife's old Cobalt was 5x110. Why.

Never knew Cosworth made anything for GM, nice. Yea that lug pattern sounds like a pain though.

Yeah both looks suit the car in different ways. Going to photoshop more ideas.

You could wrap it first to see what you like, all white or with some carbon fiber exposed. You could have the wrap on for how ever long you want, then decide what you like best.

If you're planning on getting more carbon fiber parts on the outside, you could just remove the wrap completely.

Re: RR's 2014 ATS 6spd 2.0T

^I have been looking around to see if anyone makes a wrap that might match at all. I think it's a hard color but if I find something close I'd order samples and see if it's worth it.

Re: RR's 2014 ATS 6spd 2.0T

I say leave it CF, but thats just me.

I don't think I've commented in here, but if I have oh well. But nice pickup. Looks great. I've always liked the ATS. Good to see you got a 6MT too.

Dailying a 2 door car and a 4 door for the weekends. Usually the other way around lol.

Considering these, but not sure I can get them in my bolt pattern. This guy is running them in 5x114.3.

Thanks Evan. If I was going to have a 4cyl it had to at least be manual. But it is a turbo motor and scoots, so it has really grown on me.

Haha yea, though until it starts snowing they both probably get driven evenly.

Now you have me wondering if I can bolt on a 4-100 rim onto a 4-101.1 hub. It might really come down to which lug nuts are used.
