Should I be concerned about my truck with door sticker says I have 18" rims
I have a 2008 escalade sport luxury collection package sticker says I have 22" rims. When I went to the dealer last week the computer stated that I had 18" rims and I also looked at the door jamb and it says on the driver door that I have 18" rims. I am a little concerned since my GM window sticker says my truck has 22" rims this was from GM Cadillac direct no dealer add on. So I have changed all the shocks and I am concerned because if you punch in my vin it says I have 18" rims. I do know that there is a difference when you buy shocks for 18" rims and 22" rims. Should I be worried am I loosing suspension quality. Because I took the model number from the BWI original shocks it says not for trucks with 22" rims.
So it appears the vehicle was manufactured with 18 inch wheels, however the shocks should all be the same regardless of wheel size since it is the same vehicle, the shocks are gonna have more to do with the vehicle weight then the wheels
