Ok, so I currently have 24"s on my ext and I have had no rubbing issues yet. I'm in the process of purchasing 26"s. What tires should I get so that they won't rub? Thanks in advance. If you have pictures of your escalade with 26"s please post them.

Well I have 26's on mine, and I went with 305-30-26. I knew it was going to rub a little bit ( I also have a 2/3 drop) but I did it anyway. The other option to not have any rubbing or very very little, was 295-30-26. I went with the 305's becuase the overall diameter is higher, which means more sidewall, which means softer ride. The 305's are cheaper too I think.

If you have power running boards, expect to rub more than if u had stationary ones...

I have pics, but haunt uploaded them yet:/ will do soon

I dont have a drop on mine. i dont have power running boards either. If i go with 295/30/26, will they rub any?

I had 26's on mine and had 305 tires but they rubbed crazy and I had to cut from the plastics... I sold them and upgraded to 28's Lexani Daggers and i purchased a 295 tire and have no more rubbing issues. 295 on 26 and you should be good.

Would the 26" Lexani CS2 look good?
