    My dealer put these exact wheels on a brand new Blue Chip 2007 near me. The one I saw had these wheels in 26" though. It looked amazing. You will love it. Post some pictures as soon as you can with the wheels installed. Beautiful 2007!

    Thanks.

    There is no reason for you to worry about the ride height because the height will stay the same. The only changes that occur with the new rims are less rubber and more rim. The 24's have more tire rubber than the 26's do, but the 26's look better on the 2007 in my opinion. Hope this helps. The height could slightly change if you get a thicker tire than recommeneded for the rims.

    Thanks.

    Offset question? The factory 22's are 22x9 with +31mm offset.

    Many wheel seller's are indicating that 30mm is fine for the '07 GM's.

    Sounds good. The 24's will look sick! Post some pictures when they are installed. I can't wait. Are you going to lower it as well to fill the wheel well?

    Thanks.

    With an offset of +20mm this means that you wheels will sit 11mm outside the finder line, since the +31mm wheels sit flush with the fender line. So your wheels will throw dirt and mud up your doors and mirrors. Also beware heavy use of tire dressing. After you leave the car wash you will have it all over the sides of your truck if they put it on to heavy.
