    Anything larger than the factory usually rubs. My factory rims rubbed when I first purchased it and it was right out of the showroom. Rubbing the liners aren't as big of an issue as rubbing the steps.

    Did you have any problems with your wheels?
    Other guys inhere had told that they didn't fit correctly so that they rubbed on the liner...

    Nice headlights...
    Thanks

    They do rub a lil when the wheel is all the way cut but its really slight the hardest thing to do is like back up into a spot because you have to cut the wheel a few times so that you dont hear the rub. its so slight that that it is worth it

    I liked it better without the wording on the lips. It kinda takes away they overall look of the wheels IMO. But I love the whole theme of the car! :thumbs up: is that really engraved or decal?

    Nice! I look forward to seeing that truck around the Boston area. Believe it or not there's not that many custom escalades around the Boston area. There are more custom Ranges than Escalades.

    Don't if I were you, I did mine and it looks unbelievable but rides like shit ESP with the 24s. I keep telling myself I'm going to raise it back up but every time I look at it I can't do it lol.

    Very nicely modded. The chrome and black work together very well - classy... Not murdered out, which is too easy and not attractive IMO.

    I'm 50/50 on the lip stickers... Sick at first, but yet a little over the top. IDK.

    Nice work all around though!
