    Upsized to 24" wheels from 22's. Rubbing question.

    Who is rubbing, and who is not rubbing on 24's? If you aren't rubbing, what size tires and what offset (or backspace) are your wheels? If i'm on flat pavement I can turn the wheels all the way lock to lock with no rubbing. I'm getting some rubbing in the rear on incline changes though. Seems to be rubbing on the inside of the wheel well. Trying to track down the offset of my wheels, and then considering adding a 5mm spacer or so in hopes of getting rid of the rubbing.

    Old (Cadillac CK916)

    The offset should be around 30-31mm with 24's

    The new one look smaller cos the spokes don't go right to the edge, even though they're 24s. I honestly prefer the old ones lol

    That's true about the spokes. Eventually i'll do 24's with no lip if I like the ride with these. I wouldn't go back to factory escalade or factory accessory escalade/gmc/chevy wheels though. The CK916's had chrome peeling like crazy on the inner barrel and inside the lug holes. It was only a matter of time on the face of the wheels.

    Ended up selling the 22's for $800, and picked up the 24's for $1100, so I was only out of pocket $300 for a newer set of wheels and tires, not bad at all.

    I like the 24's! I must say though, I haven't seen a lot of five spoked wheels on a six lug vehicle. Of course, who can argue with $300 bucks for upgrading wheel size? That's a great deal!

    I have 24's as well rubs occasionally in the rear on inclines or if there are people in the back are sharp turn it's only on one small section so I may just cut it out. It's not that big a deal to mess with spacers etc.
