    New 24" Wheels on my ESV

    A few weeks ago I bought a set of 24x10 (+31) replica wheels off ebay and then ordered Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asim's from discount tire in size 305/35/ZR24.
    Tires arrived yesterday and today Discount Tire got me all setup. I'm happy with the looks. Stocking looking but larger. Don't know about the ride yet as I haven't really driven it more than 2 miles and with the stock wheels in the back.
    Have noticed that at full lock the tires seem to hit the auto running boards.

    E, I have been pondering the same rims but can't make up my mind whether to pull the trigger on them.

    I keep forgetting, are you running a drop on your truck?

    Looks beautiful!!!

    I bought the regular 24 inch stick wheels and then a few months later I saw the 24 platinum wheels I was pissed! Those look great!

    Re: New 24" Wheels on my ESV

    Thanks all.
    No lower on my truck. Living in Colorado it's just not a good idea for winter driving.
    After further inspection it's rubbing the interior liner and the running board at full turn. I just need to be careful with tight turns...

    Yeah that will happen a little, especially if you're backing up on a hill with the wheels turned, or if you turn in at an angle up a parking ramp and such.

    It won't hurt anything but if it bothers you it should be pretty easily remedied with a heat gun on the liner. As long as you're not rubbing on the power assist step you're good.

    I want to use 305/35s but I'm worried about rubbing on the assist step so I was gonna go 295/35. But if you're good on the PAS and only rubbing liner then I'll go ahead with the 305s.

    -------------------

    ETA: For those who may not know, the PAS intrude more into the front wheel wells than the regular running boards, hence the above comment.

    ----------

    Damn, I re-read your OP ... I missed it that you were hitting the PAS and thought it was only liner.

    How bad is it?

    You mean the polished version of the Platinum 22s?

    Those would probably look great on a lifted truck with some 33s.

    The center cap is the same chrome one as on the rest of the Esky 22s. I'm guessing they kept those to match the other chrome elements on the truck.

    Thanks, and stay tuned cause they might be up for sale soon.

    Can you not adjust the PAS back a little? I'm in the process of trying to work a deal with a buddy for his 26s (fit fine with 305's on his but he has regular steps) and I've read that you can adjust the steps back a little for clearance. The mount bracket is apparently slotted so you can move it a little.

    It's not super bad...but bad enough that I need to do some mods to remedy it as i'm paranoid to fully turn the wheel.

    I love the way it looks.
    They are balanced very well and have no vibration in the steering wheel so far up to about 75 mph.
    Tight turns and compressions I can hear it hitting the liner and really tight turns it hits the PAS.

    Here are a few additional pics:

    Just a note that the center caps on these 24" wheels are very different than the stock 22" center caps. The stock 22's would not fit. I had some issue with the new center caps staying in place so I bought some thin sticky felt pads and stuck them to the inside of the caps it worked great.

    In retrospect, I wish I would have gone with a 295/35/24...but I had real difficulty finding a tire that I liked in this size. I really wanted the Yokohama Parada Spec-x, but they were on national backorder for quite a while. I wasn't willing to go with a cheaper tires so i went the 305 route with the Pirelli's. I'll make some mods and it will be fine...i hope!

    I'm really hoping that I can. Just 1/2 inch would make a huge difference.
