new 2011 escalade, with the factory 22" 's. I HATE the way this thing rides. My 2003 Escalade with 17" tires rides like a dream. I'm thinking of downgrading the tires to 18", or possibly aftermarket 20's. Anyone try this? as I don't want to experiment because tires/wheels cost $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I put 18" wheels on in the winter, I donít notice a dramatic difference in ride. Do you have magnetic ride? The dealer may have to see if it isn't working properly.

Check the tire pressure I run 34 psi cold

Yeah, I could not stand the way my 2010 base Escalade rode- I wound up trading it in on an ESV and could not be happier!!

Its the BridgeSTONE tires. I said after the debacle with the BridgeSTONES on my DTS that I would never leave the dealer with BridgeSTONE tires on another vehicle, yet I did.

Still trying to decide if I want to argue with Cadillac and BridgeSTONE, or do like I did with the DTS and just pay for the replacements myself, and like the DTS, I've not put 2000 miles on the tires.
