    Love the new 24's. How much are you asking for the 22's?

    Thanks!

I find this hard to believe because I KNOW I could feel almost every rock on the road with my 23's on my Expedition.

    Now I found that sometimes, there is not really much price difference in 22's and 24's but then I wonder about putting extra stress on the suspension components with 24's, so ummm I am confused now lol. Darn it - 22's or 24's????!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bro you are comparing a Expedition to and Escalade, there simply is no comparison! 24's are the only way to go! 26's to ruff of a ride, 24's Perfect, and fit those huge wheel wells a little better!

    Re: 22's or 24's ??

    I stayed with 22's after speaking with GM engineers. Their words to me involved calculations involving bump steer, static loaded radius, and lateral stability. When Cadillac/GM explains it to me in those terms...I listen. I use my vehicle daily and expect performance, safety as well as aesthetics. I pull a boat, carry loads and travel long distances at HIGHWAY speeds. I'll stick with the 22's.

    If you run a lot of back-road pot hole stuff you're probably better off with 17" or 18" to handle the impact.

    Everyone has their own opinion ...but I think the 22's fill in the wheel wells nicely.

    I agree I live on a back road with a lot of pot holes and I prefer the stock 17's because of this

    Re: 22's or 24's ??

    Cool you will like them! You will wish you went 24's after a few months lol! I had 22's on my ext when i bought it. I was wanting 24's or 26's everybody talked me into 4's. I purchased my 24's over a year ago. I love them they look good! But after 6months i wish i would of went 6's cause the 4's look small now. I personally did not notice any ride quality difference going from 2's to 4's! I can hook on to my car hauler trailer an boat an tow anywhere still! I even lowered it to take up fender gaps! 2/3 drop kit with 305/35/24 tires! Sorry for a late reply!

    Later,

    This is an easy one! 24's all the way! 22's are too small for a big Escalade! ...I have rode on 24's for a few years now, and theres no way I would go smaller! There is literally zero difference in the ride with the 24's!
