    New Owner 2004

    Picked up an 04 Escalade this past Saturday. Truck rides great and has plenty of power with the 6.0 engine. After getting the truck from the dealership I bought a set of 2008 Escalade 22 inch wheels on craigslist. I must say those wheels change the whole exterior of the truck. I will try and post a pic.

    I have one question about a compressor type noise that I hear at startup sometimes. When I start the truck up in the morning and sometimes in the afternoon. The compressor or what I think is a compressor comes on for about 5 seconds and then turns off. Is this normal? It never happens while driving. You can hear it inside and outside the truck when it comes on. I searched the archives but found nothing that addressed this question.

    Thanks

    The compressor noise is the load leveling air bags filling. Any time you leave the truck sitting for several hours you'll hear it.

    If it never kicks on at all, or never kicks off, you've got probs.

    to the forums. We're glad to have you.

    Not sure of the tire size they were new take-offs from an 08. I think they are 285/40/22 but not certain. The funny thing is...when I picked up the truck the dealers finance lady was trying to sell me all kinds of warranties and extras which I told her I was not interested in and was in a hurry to leave after being there for 1 hour 15 mins. Prior to arriving I had called the guy who was selling the 22's on craigslist and told him I would be at his home by 3pm. It was now 4pm and I was still at ther dealer. So I called the seller and told him I was running behind when he informed me another potential buyer was enroute and thought I was him calling after being lost. Thats when I told the finance lady to drop the sales pitch on extras and close me out immediately or I was walking. Luckily I was only 6 miles from the guy selling the wheels and got the deal. The car salesman and the finance lady probably thought something was up since I left on 2 wheels but I got the truck I wanted and the wheels also. Life is good.

    I think the upgraded 22" stockers look great on it.I'd like to lower mine just abit to level it but that would be unwise.Mine tows a large boat and keeps the trailer tongue low as it is.

    Looked today and the tires are 285/45/22 they are bridgestone.

    Nathan: Did you just paint the grille black with the exception of the emblem and the top chrome or did you buy a new grille?

    Same size tires as mine.

    I removed the emblem and had the paint shop tape off the chrome and outdside piece (from the headlights and bumper area) and just paint the silverish grill part. Then I bought a new emblem and wreath for it. I also replaced my emblem in the rear at the same time because the colors were faded.

    Hey that black and chrome looks nice. I was wondering, do these oem rims get messed up if you drive them in snow ie. road salt, etc. like aftermarket chrome rims?? Thanks.
