    Re: New 24" Wheels on my ESV

    I just did some research on the differences between stock (285/45/22) and these two 24" options (305/35/24 & 295/35/24). I probably should have done this before.
    You can notice that the 305/35/24 is .8" wider than the stock 285/44/22.
    The 295/35/24 looks to be closer to the same outer size as the stock 285/45/22. Interesting stuff:

    A couple other pics for those that are interested:

    Those look great. I just got the 22's for mine. I wonder what those would look like on a standard wheelbase Escalade.

    Thanks.
    I did a quick Google search and I found the following:

    Wow. Still looks just as great. Any difference in ride quality? I would be afraid to turn sharp corners unless the wheel well was modified for more room.

    Re: New 24" Wheels on my ESV

    The ride quality isn't all that much different actually. Maybe a tad harsher due tot he lower profile tires.
    The tires are also considerably wider (305's), so there is a more responsive feel and it's more prone to following the road grooves.
    I'm having some issues with rubbing of the wheel well liner and power assisted steps, but only at 80%+ turn of the wheels.
    Haven't had any issues under normal driving conditions...in fact..I really like them. So does the wifey!

    So I think the liner can be reshaped with the aid of a heat gun.
    Is agressive sanding the solution to the PAS rub?
    It looks like it's only rubbing at the inner corner.

    S -
    My plan is to try and reshape the liner with a heat gun and with regards to the PAS...i'm going to attempt to slide them back 1/4 -1/2 inch. I'm hoping that's possible as i've read on here about some that have done it. I'll explore it this weekend. I can't say for certainly that the 295/35's wouldn't have had the same problem.
    In the meantime, i'm just driving really carefully and amidst the reason snow we've had just driving a different vehicle.

    Eek, sliding them back, if somehow possible, means they wouldn't line up to the edges of the fenders/q. panels ... this would result in immediate OCD implosion for me.

    If it's not that significant can't you just trim little of the plastic off the PAS at the inner corner?

    I'm pretty OCD about that stuff myself. I'm hoping that i can move them a small enough amount that it prevents them from hitting without making it look bad.
    If I have to trim some of the plastic, then so be it.
    I'll keep y'all updated.

    Sweet whip! I purchased some 24" replica wheels back in Dec Andrade the same mistake... I went with 305 instead of 285 and have been experiencing some rubbing only when fully locked. It has not been a problem for me, I adjusted my driving a little to avoid u turns etc... Never gave much thought to any sort of modifications to fix the rubbing.

    Andyou75 - Any longer term affects on the inner liner from the rubbing? Do you feel/hear rubbing on any compressions?
    I notice you don't have the power assisted steps. That's probably a good thing for these larger wheels.

    Elusive... I don't hear any rubbing other than during sharp turns (which I rarely do anymore). I visually check for any sign of wear today on the tires and front wheel well (did not notice any damage or signs of wear). I think you are right the absence of power running boards is a plus. Like someone mentioned before a 285 or 295 may eliminate the rub all together.
