    Buying new rims... need advice.

    Hello. I am buying new rims. I want to buy 23x10's. But I like the wide rim look from the back. Does the Escalade 2002 support wider rims? Such as 23x10.5. if I stick with 23x10, and do a 2/3 drop, would 40 series tires be perfect with no rub? One last question.. I want the offset to be perfect where it will sit flush with the fender. What offset do I need? Thank you

    I used to have 23x10's and from the back the car looked really nice in my opinion. It had a wide wheels look from the back but if you want 10.5 they do have them but i Don't think for 23's. You will find 24's and 26's with a 10.5 width and they look really nice from the back too. It all comes down to what you like. With my 23's I have a 305/40 tire and the rubbing was not at that bad at all. Once you trim the fender you find any rubbing at all unless your turning really fast. As far as the offset, I have no clue. Hope this helped
