Hi Guys,

I am new to CadillacOwners.com and new to the Escalade world. I just bought a 2010 Escalade EXT Premium from the US and it is now being shipped to my house in Newfoundland, Canada. I am looking for a good set of wheels. I have 19" iForged Aeros on my Heffner 1500TT Viper and they are good quality wheel and I am considering a set of 24" Aeros for my Escalade, but I would like some input from you guys before I order.

I have also seen nice wheels from Strasse Forged which I'm also interested in.

My plan is to have a machined lip and color matched white diamond tri-coat centers in a classic 5 spoke design.

All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Shaun

Can`t go wrong if you stick with forged rims. Welcome fellow Canadian Escalade owner!

Looks like I am going with a set of Lexani Lust in a 24" x 10". I love the wheel!! Now I have to decide whether I should color match the faces to the truck or leave the the faces machined!? :banghead:

I was just going to recommend Lexani wheels, but I see you have already made that decision.

Thanks for your offer on the Boss Wheels Packman, but I'm going to order the 24" Lexani Lust with the white color matched face. The more I look at the wheels, the more I like them! I'll post some pics when I put them on.

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but tried to send you a PM and it didn't work. What state are you located in, if you are still looking to sell.

Also, and more importantly...OP, did the lexanis ever come in? If so, can you share some pictures?
