The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is the most track-capable model that the luxury marque has ever made, offering supercharged performance with 669 horsepower, plus all the usual Cadillac style and luxury. Having taken a close look at the super sedan’s exterior colors, brake caliper options, and interior color and material options, we’re now taking a closer look at the CT5-V Blackwing wheel options, of which there are three.
|Wheel Size (inches)||19|
|Finish||Alloy with Polished/Dark Android finish||Alloy with Satin Graphite finish||Aluminum alloy with Tech Bronze finish|
All CT5-V Blackwing wheel options are made of forged aluminum alloy and measure 19-inches in diameter, with wheel width staggered at 10 inches in front and 11 inches in the rear.
The standard Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing rollers (tagged with production code Q63) are offered with a Polished/Dark Android finish, with a wide split-spoke design that helps show off the large brakes and calipers underneath.
Alternatively, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing can be optioned with 19-inch alloy wheels with a Satin Graphite dark finish. This wheel features the same general design as the standard wheel, but with a consistent black finish. These wheels are tagged with production code Q61, and are available for an extra $600.
Finally, the third 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing wheel option are the 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels with a Tech Bronze finish and sporty multi-spoke design. These particular wheels are tagged with production code RHL and add $1,500 to the super sedan’s price.
No matter which wheel option one picks, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing models are equipped as standard with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S high-performance, summer-only tires measuring in at 275/35ZR19 in the front and 305/30ZR19 at the rear. Meanwhile, the standard brake specs includes Brembo six-pot calipers in front and four-pot calipers in the rear. Customers interested in hitting the racetrack can upgrade to available carbon-ceramic brakes, which offer improved heat management, plus greater wear-resistance under extreme conditions. The carbon-ceramic brakes also feature a 53-pound reduction in unsprung weight, and a 62-pound reduction in rotating mass.
As a reminder, the 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is powered by the luxury marque’s supercharged 6.2L V8 engine (production code LT4), which is capable of 669 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful Caddy ever built. All that power meets the pavement exclusively via the two rear wheels through either the standard six-speed manual transmission or optional 10-speed automatic.
