    Cheapest spinning wheels for a 07 Escalade?

    I am sold on the Escalade and plan on purchasing an 07 to surprise my wife to replace her Nav. My kids and my wife really likes those wheels where the outside pieces spins. Makes the wheels look they are not moving. I know nothing about them. I have been told that they are super expensive.

    Like to know a rough ball park on what we are talking about for these types of wheels. Not sure what size. What is a good web site to learn more?

    THanks for any help,

    -Bart-

    Please do not get spinners...your doing the '07 an injustice. They were a fad a few years ago and they get more laughs than compliments.

    Back in the days when they were the latest craze they were fairly expensive, now they're dirt cheap. You can buy pre-packaged combos or you can buy the spinners seperately and attach them to the rims of your choice. Be careful on the fit as well as the lip size of the rim because you don't want the spinner to just stick out from the rim...you kind of want it spinning inside the wheel's lip.

    The spinner attachments run like $800-1000 for a set of four then add the cost of the rim. With rims dirt cheap these days your looking at $2500 for a set of 22"s then add $1000 for the spinners.

    If your wife likes them then I guess that's all that matters. But you'll get snickers when you pull up in your nice '07 with ghetto spinners. If you getting a black escalade I reccommend black rim with chrome lip and chrome bolt patterns if it's a 3 piece rim. To each his own.

    Cheap spinners look cheap, you can get some really nice wheels, even the stock 22's are pretty nice. If you want to get spinners get nice ones, with wheels and tires they will cost you 7k to 10k. Why would you want to put cheap spinners on a 60k plus truck.

    I would suggest you get the Floater wheels instead of the spinners.

    It's just going to look stupid...that was a nasty trend that came about years ago, and always looked dumb. Especially once they started selling spinner hubcaps for poor people without taste...

    Go with a stunning set of "normal" chrome rims, and trust me, you'll stand out just as much...and have a truck that looks gorgeous, and not out of style

    I agree with this quote completely. If you are going to get spinners, please look into floaters. DUB has floaters to choose from, and if you want spinners, DUB or Davin are the companies to choose from.

    Thanks.

    they are called Floaters. You could do a google search you will come up with tons of sites that sell them. Or a time machine to go back in time when they were hot (sorry, couldnt resist)

    Just reading through this thread, I am so glad I never wasted any $'s on that crap. I knew right off the bat it was stupid.

    Never liked spinners! I like those floaters though, aslong as you paint the background of te rim to match your truck. get the floaters but dont get spinners.

    Yeah I always laugh whenever I see someone go by with a set of spinners. I laugh even harder when you can tell they came from Wal-Mart.

    by the way, how do floaters work?

    Spinners= the spinner it self spins once you get to a certain speed.

    Floaters= the spinner sits in place (due to weight on the spinner itself) making it appear to be floating when they drive.
