    When I bought my 2007 Escalade ESV within months I had my 24" Asanti wheels (24X10) running with 305/35/24 BFG tires. There was occasional rubbing when I turned the wheel all the way to the left or right, but other than that it was fine. It is true that the ride quality does suffer, but it is minimal IMHO. Of course I say this while I am riding on 21" wheels on my BMW M5 with a rear profile tire sized at 305/25/21 (i.e., rubber bands). As a result, I am accustomed to the stiffer ride. I am thinking of a 2015 Escalade with custom built 24" HRE wheels or 26" ADV1 wheels. I had the latter send me a rendition of a 26" wheel with titanium face and gunmetal lips (attached). What do you think? Honest opinions are fine since I know for many they prefer the stock look, but I've always modded my vehicles.

    Look great, i like those. Some might say the spokes are too thin, maybe they are a tad.... and Id run 24s with 295/35/24s. 26s just look real goofy on an Escalade to me. Not only are the wheels too big, the tires are too low pro. It just doesn't work for an SUV, to me anyways. It's a little too ghetto fab as well. I guess it depends where you live too. Maybe in LA you can pull that look off.

    305s are out of spec and will rub a bit as you said. Might cause other ride issues as well.

    Hard to tell from the angle, but they look similar to the gianelle yerevan's.

    I'll post more pictures tomorrow, but here are my Gianelle Bologna 24's with the Nitto 420S's. They look exactly how I expected them to, very happy!

    Thanks guys. The ride is a bit stiffer but it isn't terrible. It just feels a bit more like I'm driving a car now then an SUV. The handling might even be better. It's funny, when I took that picture the google "auto awesome" feature kicked in on my phone and added some special effects to the photo (I'll post it later). I've only had it happen twice before, once when taking a picture of a snowy backyard and another time taking a Christmas tree shot. I don't know it's detecting the escalade or the wheels, but something in the picture triggered it!

    Here are more pictures of the 24" Gianelle Bologna's I put on yesterday. Only 1 slight problem.. I can't go through the full service car wash anymore, the wheels are too wide! They said technically it will fit, but its just about flush with their rollers. They couldn't guarantee they wouldn't be damaged. These are 10" wide wheels. So if full service car washing is important to you, stick with 9.5" or lower in width!

    After having the 24s on for a month now I really love them. Id like a bit more tire, but it is what it is. Ride is still smooth and it looks like a show stopper. Now when I see 22s I think, "damn that's a lot of tire!". I probably shouldn't of got them though as I'll likely be trading in my black raven for a white diamond, I'm not sure how great the black with machined face wheels would look on it. White vehicles need chrome wheels in my opinion. Maybe I could have the wheels modified, leave the machined face but change the black paint to match the white diamond.

    Actually they don't look half bad on a white vehicle!

    I think if you tint the front windows, the black wheels will look great on a white truck. The windows will pick up the black in the wheels.


    In edit, your picture beat me to the punch, but perfectly demonstrates the window thing.

    Yep, the tinted windows and the wheels look great together.

    Just curious. Why would you want to trade in your black Esky for a white? I have a black '08 so I think I know your answer, but your truck looks great with the black paint and those rims

    I actually never wanted black to begin with, i took it due to my impatience in acquiring the vehicle. I wouldn't personally bother trading in a vehicle only to change the color, but considering I want to pick up a platinum anyways I'm going to try and get one in white diamond the second time around. Black is a nightmare to keep clean, shows every little scratch, orange peel, too hot, etc.

    Please don't ruin the looks of your Escalade with those 24" gangsta wheels!

    Ha, I got these because they AREN'T gangster wheels. I really think those giant 26" chrome wheels with huge lips make the vehicle look like crap. The ones I put on damn near look like they could of been stock. About time to take them off now, but man, never had so many people ask me about my vehicle as when I had these on the vehicle. 60 year old men, 7 year old boys, and everyone in between. They are definitely head turners but still look classy in my opinion. Back to the 22's for winter though. Never ran 22 in winter, always dropped down to 18. Guess we'll see how it goes.
