The first generation 2007-2009 SRX had the factory Sport Package Option: 20" wheels, all with exact matching P255-50-R20 tires on all four corners. Straight from Cadillac/GM. Same rolling diameter.
Second, a zillion people during the winter run either winter tires on their original rims or a dedicated tire//wheel package on first generation SRXs, all exact same size tires on the four corners with the same rolling diameter.
Third, for those with offset tire sizes that came with the car.....the same diameter between the fronts and the backs is achieved by using different aspect ratio tires (the middle number). For those with factory (or aftermarket)18 inch rims : P235-60-18 fronts and P255-55-18 rears. Same rolling diameter.
Find yourself another tire dealer.
#21 of 31 2004 Cadillac SRX WILL NOT START PLEASE HELP
Jan 05, 2011 (6:08 pm)
I have a 2004 CADILLAC SRX. I have had multiple problems to say the least.
Now there is a recall for the exhaust System. Cadillac orderd the part.
Now the SRX will not start. You turn the key and it does not crank at all.
Is this a Starter issue or the anti theft system built in the car. I am so so
angry. I can not even get the Truck to Cadillac because it will not start.
One problem after another. Does anyone have any advice. klasboyaol.com
I am told the starter is under the middle of the Engine and it is a 700.00 JOB
The truck does not even have 90,000 miles on it. I am so sick and tired my wife would not even drive the truck because she is so afraid of something else going wrong. What is going on with American made Truck??????
#22 of 31 2004 Cadillac STARTER ISSUE OR ANTI THEFT PROBLEM
Jan 05, 2011 (7:23 pm)
I have a 2004 SRX. I have had so many issues with this truck since it was brand new.
The Brakes need to be changed every 10,000 miles. I was told it was the way my wife drives.
My wife drives 4 miles a day back and forth to work. I have had Stability issues, which I see is a major problem with these trucks. It is also a very serious saftey issue. I have had a check engine light on due to a faulty exhaust converter problem. Cadillac has issued a recall on the converter issue. I ordered the parts from the Dealer, finally a fix. Well now guess what? The car will not start. It has a brand new battery...............When you turn the key the lights come on, however the car does not crank over. To make things worse. I do not have a Dealer in Staten Island. I wonder why????? I have to go to New Jersey. The Cadillac will not start. I can not even get the Truck to New Jersey. My Wife has gotten herself mentally sick over this truck.
I do not know where to go with my problem. Does anyone have a Class Action Suit against Cadillac??I would lke any information. I was told the Starter issue could be one of 50
issues. The truck needs to be connected to a GM Computer at the Dealership. OK I live in Staten Island how can I get my SRX to New Jersey, if any of you nice people out there have some advice.....................Please help. Thses issues have caused us some much extra stress
in my family that I do not know what to do. How can Cadillac produce such an expensive truck
with some many mechcanical problems. We are at our witts end.

The dealer has been rotating my tires from front to back. Will this cause a problem? My 2006 SRX only has 20,000 miles.
I love in Anchorage Alaska, what type of winter tires should i be usoing for ice and snow?

Rotating tires front to rear - as opposed to cross - is fine. It is more important that the tires be rotated in some form than not rotated at all. While a modified X pattern is best, it is only slightly more advantageous than front to rear.

Beware. My 2005 AWD V8 SRX transmission failed and dealership determined due to wrong tire size 255 55 18 all around which were installed by Cadillac prior to purchase and Cadillac factory rep certified car when purchased. In 2 month fight with GM and dealer as they installed the tires their current offer is $1,500. plus I have to purchase 4 new tires $950. Ran into another owner with identical issue only his wasn't a certified vehicle his dealer finally replaced both tires and transmission free and it wasn't even a Cadillac shop.

#28 of 31 The Cadillac SRX is not a truck

The problem is---you are calling it a truck! Call it a SUV, a Crossover or the Cadillac, Caddy or some other pet name, but never a truck.. They do have a soul and like to be talked to fondly, as do you--Best of luck FM
