I'm new here and thought I would share a couple of pics of my ESV. Here are some of the details: the wheels are Asanti 24's- I asked my fitment specialist from Asanti to make a custom wheel for me and they did(great company, great service) The wheel is basically a 24 x10 but I had the lip changed from a 4" to a 3", most every wheel they make is made after you order it so to make a change isn't a big deal(nice feature).The tires are BFGoodrich G-force T/A 305/35/ZR24, It's been lowered 2/3 and has been debadged. I also tinted the windows including the windshield. I just installed the 3rd gen lock pick(works great)

Although my ESV's stopping ability is pretty good with the new 24's- I have been looking into doing a brake upgrade. So far the clear choice has been Brimbo or Baer but I'm still looking. Any suggestions?

I couldnt get the file small enough to load. I had to convert to a pdf for the forum to accept it. Is there a better way?

Why this you change the size of the wheel lip from a 4inch to a 3inch?

When you debadged was there anything holding any of the badges on other than the adhesive. ie rivets or anything?

any tips on debadging? I want to do the same, but alittle timid in damaging the finish. I've read all the fishing wire, dental floss, hair dryer, acetone, 3m adhesive remover threads, but I guess i just want some more reassuring advice.

thx
btw the truck looks so clean with the rims and badgeless.

What did you use for a lowering kit? The ride looks great! I would definitly go with the Baer or Brembo brakes....bot make great kits the Brembo's are more on the expensive side.

As for guys looking to debadge.

Spray on some adhesion remover and let sit for a few min. Then heat up the badges with a hair dryer and use either fishing line, hard plastic scraper ans slowly work of the badges. For info the more effort you take getting the badge off with the tape stuck to them the easier it will be on step two. I recommend keeping good amount of heat and using more adhesion remover...take your time on this step cause it makes it easier to clean up small amounts of the left over residue. Once all the badges are off it takes elbow grease a cotton rag and use the adhesion remover to take off the rest of the 3m tape...you could also use a 3m eraser.

your truck is nice, but do not need upgraded brakes unless you want to tow something big. I used to have xs 500 03' esv and the brakes were great since I had to tow a big boat.

BTW if you are going to go with BBK don't go anything less than Brembo. Brembo is the best. I know it costs a little more then Baer, but I have mixed reviews about Baer.
