Hey guys, here's a pic of my Escalade. The wheels are Lexani, but does anyone know what model? I couldn't find my wheels on the Lexani website. I know it's not a close up of the wheels but I'll take a close up if it helps. They're 23's.

shaquille oneal had a green 05 escalade with those wheels. Those are 23 inch OZ Vela rims

Here's the link, look for the dark green one.

B, what size tire are you running on those 23s, and do you rub against the power assist steps when you turn?

Thanks.

The story is a little bit confusing cause they're referring to different escalades, but it says:

"He recently decided to part with his Green Escalade which is sitting on 23 inch Lexani rims with Pirelli Scorpion tires."

Which makes more sense cause of the center caps and the fact that Oz Vela wheels appear to be a different type of wheel.

Here, they're apparently called Lexani VP2: http://superbuytires.com/gallery/view/Cadillac/Escalade/Lexani/VP2_1pc/7242/

That was quick! Thanks for the answer guys.

They rub on everything man lol. 305/40/23 IIRC. The Escalade is in the shop right now but I'll double check when I finally get it back. They definitely rub if you turn too sharp. I'm not entirely sure what they rub on but I'm thinking it's the plastic inner fender. I should make sure and cut out where they rub. Either that or I have a nice set of 20's from my previous vehicle I might put on. Not sure, 20's might be kind of small for the Escalade? I'll have to dig out the 20's and check.

Fender liners I don't care tbh, that's easily remedied with either a heat gun or just cut out.

Just curious about rubbing on the inner forward tip of the assist step.

When you get it back can you take a pic for me of what clearance there is tween the tire and PAS when the wheel is turned?

Thanks. :)

I hadn't even thought they could be rubbing on the steps before. I'd be worried now if I didn't have about 5 other things on my mind ahead of that lol. My worry queue is full LOL.

Yeah no problem man I can snap some pics when I get it back.. Not sure when that will be :annoyed: I've got a brand new truck for a loaner but it's not doing it for me! I saw 3 GMT900 Escalades and 2 800 Escalades today. It's like they're teasing me....
