Go w/ 20 or 22's and put a trailer w/ toyz, (boat, jet skis,quads or a bike). Dude I am in the millitary and we don't make BIGGGG bank but We do aight if we manage it I roll my LADE to work on nice days (mayb once a week). But in the summer when I roll it I my 23' bayliner hooked up to it, and other times I have my bike. The hell with what others think you earned it. Get some plates that fit you. I have "40 ACRES"
Thanks for the responses fellas. What I am worried about is that most lawyers are old school and think a Lade on 24's (or any Lade owned by a 26 year old) is ghetto. I will be the lowest of the lawyers (an associate) and eventually want to become a partner and I don't want then to think I am lazy because my father (who grew up with nothing and made a lot) bought me a nice car. On the other hand I would hope that these guys (the partners) would buy their children nice cars some day and look past it. I am a hard worker. I played 5 years of college football (1 redshirt season) at a DI school, went to Law School, etc. I am not some punk. I am for sure getting the '07 Lade, but holding off on the rim decision unless I can be convinced one way or another. A 2nd car is not an option because I don't want to pay the insurance, but I might drive my GF's.
Dont let what they think bother you. But if there opinion really matters to you or how you are percieved at work, get the 07 with stock 22's. That is a really classy looking truck. (Black in my opinion) I went to the detroit auto show and DUB had the 07 lade on 26's, and it looked amazing.
Keep it stock with the 20's. It is all about image and the image about you want to project of yourself to the partners of the law firm. Go conservative ,the senior partners will recognize the class of your Escalade without you going over the top.Keep it low key, the the older partners are probably old school and will judge you. It's to bad but it's reality.Here where I live Escalades are a dime a dozen they are everywhere. But they are all kept pretty much stock because becuase people will label you.It's the best ride out there you should see the faces when I have the boat in tow that really gets them talkin. Good luck with your choice.
My wife also an attorney took my Viper to a golf outing. She was the talk of the firm. Many thought she was stuck up and conservative. After seeing her pull up in a 05 silver snake, partners who never approached her are now some of her best friends.
Keep your own identity. That is most likely one of the reasons they hired you in the first place. 24's all the way baby!!!!!!!!!!
I'd have thought fellow attorneys would think it cool if you had a dressed up Lade or any other high profile vehicle.
I personally want the full comfort and ride the Lades are designed for and like everything stock with maybe a few personal low profile enhancements but ...
that doesn't mean I don't like seeing something with 24's and a little blinged out.
No matter what you have or do, there will always be someone who doesn't like what you do or have.
Go with the 07 Lade for sure and then do what ever turns you on.
