    I took a heat gun to the fender walls on my 07 EXT with 24"s. Take the heat gun to the fender where it rubs and push it in and immediately after have a bucket filled with cold water and ice and take a sponge to it and just go over it with the cold water. The fender will stay there and the rubbing should stop. I only experienced the rubbing before I did that when i went over bumps to fast!

    THe offset is off by about 10mm should be closer to 30mm that could be a problem!!! Where is it rubbing the most? Is your truck lowered?

    no it is not lowered, it is rubbing in the front and back of the wheel well in the lower to mid center of each one, mostly when i am in reverse

    As said you are rubbing due to the offset not being at 30mm

    Not much you can do unless you get the front end up alittle! Maybe try les schwab if you have one close by they might have a kit to bring it up half inch that should fix it!!! Or sell your wheels on ebay and buy some new ones the offset makes a huge differance

    Good luck Bro

    The sensors will work with any aftermarket wheel, they can be reset with a Tech II Tool or other sensor tool, or by this method

    Resetting the TPMS Identification Codes
    Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification
    code. Any time you rotate your vehicleís tires
    or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors,
    the identification codes will need to be matched
    to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors
    are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the
    following order: driverís side front tire, passengers
    side front tire, passengers side rear tire, and
    driverís side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic
    tool. See your GM dealer for service.
    The TPMS sensors may also be matched to each
    tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing
    the tireís air pressure. If increasing the tireís
    air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation
    pressure indicated on the tireís sidewall.
    You will have two minutes to match the first tire/
    wheel position, and five minutes overall to match
    all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer
    than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel,
    or more than five minutes to match all four tire
    and wheel positions the matching process stops
    and you will need to start over.
    The TPMS sensor matching process is
    outlined below:
    1. Set the parking brake.
    2. Turn the ignition switch to RUN with the
    engine off.
    3. Using the DIC, press the vehicle information
    button until the PRESS
    V TO RELEARN
    TIRE POSITIONS message displays.
    4. Press the set/reset button. The horn will
    sound twice to indicate the TPMS receiver
    is ready, and the TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE
    message will display.
    5. Start with the driverís side front tire.
    6. Remove the valve cap from the valve
    cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by
    increasing or decreasing the tireís air
    pressure for five seconds, or until a horn
    chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which make
    take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms
    that the sensor identification code has been
    matched to this tire and wheel position.
    To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you
    can use the pointed end of the valve cap,
    a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.
    7. Proceed to the passengerís side front tire,
    and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
    8. Proceed to the passengerís side rear tire,
    and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
    9. Proceed to the driverís side rear tire, and
    repeat the procedure in Step 6.
    10. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for
    the driverís side rear tire, the horn chirp
    will sound two more times to signal the
    tire learning mode is no longer active.
    Turn the ignition switch to LOCK.
    11. Set all four tires to the recommended
    air pressure level as indicated on the Tire
    and Loading Information label.
    12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems
    The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor.
    If you replace one of the road tires with the spare,
    the SERVICE TIRE MONITOR message will be
    displayed on the DIC screen. This message should
    go off once you re-install the road tire containing
    the TPMS sensor.

    Re: 24" rubbing on 07 escalade, wind noise

    i have tried to set them 8 times using the methods in the manual but with no luck. i called the dealership and talked to the guy in service and he told me that they would no work with the 24" rims, the sensors are strapped inside of the rim because they said that it would not mount on the valve stem with the way the rims are, maybe this is why they will not work.

    I have several customers with large wheels and the sensors are strapped inside, their sensors work, I know because I reset them with my sensor tool, may want to find another dealership.
