Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014 Discussion, Tire size on 24s in Cadillac Escalade Forums; Whats the largest tire size you can go on 24s? The more aspect ratio the better for ride purposes.
I currently have 26 x 9.5 wheels with 305/30r26. Those tires are taller and just as wide so they must rub. I just bought the truck though. I want to downsize to 24s and get the biggest tires for ride purposes.
@soulsea your lowering kit doesnt contribute to the rubbing? Is it more of a front to back issue than height of truck issue.
When comparing the 295/35/24 to my current 305/30/26 the current tire is 1 taller in diameter and .5 wider. Ill have to go inspect for signs of rubbing because that alot bigger. thanks soul sea
The 305/30/26 don't ever touch when i turn wheel left to right. You can see where there has been some rubbing in the plastic. THe guy had been running these 26s for 3 years so the rubbing is minimal. Thats interesting because the tires are much bigger than 295/35/24. Maybe the 30s has a sharper profile sidewall and doesn't balloon out much. Maybe it has something to do with offset.
Has anyone tried 285/40/24s? Read on another forum people like those. You lose the wide squatty look but gain side wall.
I have 305/35/24 and absolutely love it. I don't notice any rubbing, though I know on RARE occasions it'll lightly rub small parts of the inner liner. I didn't feel it, and only reason i know is there's a small "shiny" spot on the plastic. But I'll gladly take that so I can have a little extra cushion and curb protection from the crappy roads.

Re: Tire size on 24s
Guys, unless you state what your wheel offset is, then it's going to be hard to compare on just tire size alone.
305/35 rubs quite a bit on an OE 30 offset with or without a drop (with a drop you have to start cutting a lot of liner), many many people have documented this with 24" OE replica wheels that have the 30 offset.
Currently i have 26 x 9.5 wheels with 305/30r26 - wheel offset +25. Overall tire size is 33.2 x 12. It seems to run fine. Im going to down size to 24" ck375 wheels 24 x 10. I dont know offset. Id like to put as much tire on as possible. Seems like options are 295/35r24, 305/35r24 or possibly 285/40r24. Id like to possibly do the 285/40r24 but dont know if thatll work with 24 x 10 rims. Seems like height and width (33 x 11.2)is no problem because its smaller than what i have now although you lose the wide sqautty look. Thanks for your input
Well for reference, I have a 2010 rwd escalade, base model with fixed step rails and stock height. 305/35/24 nexxen roadians on the esky replicas from Cpw wheels. Minor rubbing. I actually don't even know when it rubs, only evidence is a smooth spot in the front section if the fender well. Size about a baseball. I turned the wheel to full lock and it seems like it's literally 2mm away. So only time I think it rubs is full lock going up or Down a curb.
