The time has come to replace the OEM Bridgestone Duelers (285/45R22) on my 2007 Escalade with about 32,000 miles.
I am open to any suggestions on what a good replacement would be or if I should just get the same ones. I am in Florida so snow is not a factor but I do want something sharp and with good rain traction and performance.

I was looking on tire rack and they have several that fit listed and believe it or not the highest rated tire by users was the "Yokohama Parada Spec-X" tire. That showed the highest user and expert reviews overall. The tire shows much better rated than the OEM tires and is about 300 bucks cheaper. A set of 4 is 652 which is by far the cheapest of all the listed brands.

Money is not that big an issue but saving 300 for a better rated tire is always good.

Any help and suggestions is much appreciated!

You have a big selection, go to tire rack and you can see your choices. The stock tires have a 600 tread wear rating, just about every other tire in that size has a lower tread wear rating, that means they will offer a "softer" ride but will not last as long as the stock Bridgestone's

Tire Rack has some Yokohama tires that I will be looking into in the next few months. Get pretty good reviews from people on there and they are cheaper than the OEM tires.

I recently went back with the original Bridgestone's after getting 60,000 miles on the factory set. I wasn't going to mess with success... I only hope I do as well on this set.

Are they the Zeon XSTa? I am about to order the same tire for my wifes ESV. I was concerned the 40 might rub.
