I am in Mountain View and I am looking to get new rims/tires plus lowering and big breaks.
I need some help with choices and installation.

Here is what I am looking for:
I think I want 24x10 with 305 size tires
something like this: http://www.carid.com/giovanna-wheels/andros-truck-black-4131182.html
but I also I think I want to lower it 2/3 which I think might introduce some fitting issues (more so than just adjusting the inside fender liners)

Additionally I am sure I want big breaks but I think I want to have a set of winter wheels/tires which will probably be on 18" rims. will that work???

Any help?
I would like to find a shop that has experience with this kind of things.

Anyone have a set of used Brembos for sale? :)

Hoping someone can give me a reference.

Have you tried posting in the regional forums? http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/pacific/

Doesn't look that frequented but maybe someone there will have a suggestion.

That carid link you posted is 404 ... what's the name of the Giovanna wheels you're looking at?

24" rims with 25-30 offset and 295/35 tires on a 2/3 drop will only rub a tiny bit on the fenders. I had that setup on my Tahoe.

Oh and I know who might be able to help you with both the drop and the wheels. Not sure if he's a member here but he's a vendor on tahoeyukonforum. His name is Tony, username: Norcal SS. He also runs Wilwood BBK on his Escalade so he might know where to get them at a decent price. I'm not exactly sure when in NorCal he is but I think it's near the bay area. Shoot him an email or PM.
