    two of my wheels cracked today

    My wife accidentally hit a pot hole. Should I go with stock gm wheels??? Or buy the aftermarket?? I heard the OEM 22's peel, I haven't had any problems with mine. I have also been playing with the idea of buying platinum 22's or 24's.The wheel on the bottom is the front passenger and the other is the rear passenger. What should I do???

    Holy CRAP!! That must of hit hard!! All of the chrome wheels seem to have issues, even the aftermarket ones. I'd say go with 24's, since that is what you want, but that is just gonna make the issue worse hitting potholes like that!

    I have 2 extra as well, in Michigan. Message me if interested. I have the after market 22" "platinum" wheels on mine, thus the extras and I love the way they look. The after market I bought are good but I don't think they would last long if you are in an area with a lot of salt use. I got mine from a place in Sarasota Florida, OEM wheels direct or something. I run oem chrome 18"'s in the winter,however, trading the truck next week so those will be up for sale too. Good luck!

    She doesn't want the Escalade to look too pimpy On the other hand I like the look of big wheels.

    Bigger the rim, rougher the ride. Also les forgiving on pot holes. Less rubber on the rim. P.S. think you are seriously ready for tires.... From your photo, no meat left.

    Just sayn...

    Bigger the wheels the easier they are to break or bend on potholes.

    Did you put new tires? Your before photos looked like they were pretty worn down.
    Did they high speed balance them and put the weights on the inside?

    I had two new tires installed in the front, original Bridgestone. The rear Bridgestone's still look new, kept them. I just made sure that the structural integrity of the rear passenger tire was not compromised. Everything went well. All I needed to do when I got home was to switch the fake looking caps from Usarim to the OEM color crest caps.
