These guys ride a bit harsh comparing previously to my 07' Suburban w/17" rims.

Btw it's a lease so...probably no replicas allowed.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what the policy is for swapping wheels when you lease a vehicle but you could go down a couple of sizes, the standard size for 2007+ Escalade is 18 inches.

I run 18's in the winter because they perform better in deep snow the ride is really smooth

You could also go down to 20 inches but you would have to buy non-OEM wheels.

The other option is to get bigger tires for your 22's.

Thanks for the reply man.

Should I stick with the larger H/L Alenzas ?

I put 20" OEM Platinum rims from a 2006 on my 07 EXT. I like them as a compromise between outer circumference (32") and ride quality. I run Blizzaks on my 18" rims in the winter - hard to beat them on snow and ice and in rain.

Probably fairly pricey if purchased from GM. I bought mine used.

Policy is that you return the leased vehicle with the same wheels it had when the lease started. End of story. Like a rental car. So, only option is to put the 22s away, buy and use 18s,or 20s of any kind, then put the 22s back on when you return the truck at the end of the lease and sell your 18s/20s at that point.

I have a set of 20" GM wheels for sale, they are on my web site at www.hcvind.com , they offer a better ride than the 22's, and still look good.

20s are the perfect compromise IMO. If I had not turned mine (07) in at lease end, I would have invested in GM 20s for sure.

Harsh...can you describe it a bit more? does the Escalade transfer alot of the road inside the cab? Is the cabin noisier? Feel every groove & bump on the road? Ride too stiff?
