    we'd all love those but really, for the price and durablity, i'd go with 22s. 22s will still let you have a good size sidewall so it would still ride decent and not risk rolling the sidewall over.

    Ya man, just be careful because as I left the caddy dealer today (took my car in for service) they had an Escalade with a dub-two+ wheels and the rear was severely bent and probably irreparable. That's at least $500 down the tubes!

    Why not get a set of 20's? This is a good size because you could avoid low profile tires (thus avoid harsh ride; risk of damage to tires, rims, suspension, brakes; poor gas mileage from added weight, etc.) while still adding style. Just take a look at the goregous dubs on the Infiniti FX. I believe it rides on 265/50/20...plenty of car-life saving sidewall.

    Just think about this phrase: "LOW PROFILE TIRES ON A SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE" It doesn's sound right! (and that's because it's not). JMHO.

    I would go with 22's. Run a 305/45/22 Toyo tire and you probably wouldn't have to worry about the side walls. I ran this size on my old truck and had no problems with curbs and potholes. The only thing is to upgrade the brakes. This goes for anything 20's and up. The unsprung weight of these big rim packages are really hard on the brakes.

    I have 22's and they ride just like the stock wheels do. However a friend has 24's and it's a little bumpy. If comfort is your concern try 22's or 23's. Also buy a high quality wheel like giovanna, they will not turn out like #$^% after a year.
