Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014 Discussion, 24" rubbing on 07 escalade, wind noise in Cadillac Escalade Forums; Hi, I just bought a 07 Escalade and put 24" Giovanna Lido rims with a 20mm offset with Pirelli 305/35/24 ...
Hi, I just bought a 07 Escalade and put 24" Giovanna Lido rims with a 20mm offset with Pirelli 305/35/24 tires on it and they are rubbing badly and wanted to know if anyone else was having this problem before i ruin my tires, do you have any solutions, and also this suv has a bad wind noise from the drivers front side and i see that other people are having this same problem. Any sugggestions? My 05 ext was alot better in alot of ways. Thanks.Jon.
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!
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
i guess i will have to try that, also i had sensors installed inside of the wheels but cannot get them to work with the truck , do you know if this can be done and what could i get for these wheels with them being brand new. thanks for all the help. jon.

Re: 24" rubbing on 07 escalade, wind noise
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
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to RUN with the
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.
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.
