: Custom wheel offset question

Hello all,

I came across some older nice custom chrome 24" X 10" rims with 305/35/24 tires. They will fit the escalade. However, one rim and tire needs to be replaced. The problem is that the offset of the rims are 13 and they no longer make that offset. I can get 30 offset. The difference is about 2/3" I believe. My local rim dealer thinks the difference will not be noticeable to the eye or handling. Or I can buy two rims with the 30 offset for the same axle. Just looking for advice. I really don't want to spend the extra on an additional rim, but I suppose a spare rim may not be a bad idea.

Personally I would just keep looking unless they are dirt cheap and you dont mind buying another two rims.

Hello, we manufacturer wheels and you would see a difference, and it would cause handling issues. Wheels of that offset (under 15) are for the 2002-2006 trucks, the 2007 and up use a 31 mm offset, I would pass personally on the deal
