Hi there...
I still got my original 18" on...
As we are now looking forward to by some new rims, I would like to know which size you would suggest us to talk... We mostly use our esky for Holliday trips home to kroatia where my wife is coming from... The roads are quite bad over there... And I wouldnt like to loose comfort..

22's if you're concerned about sidewall.

22" if you want to accelerate faster.
24" look better.

Get 24's and if your worried about gas guzzling, then buy the Tahoe Hybrid wheels. I believe there forged 17".. Light and good on gas when traveling :-)

Tahoe/Yukon Hybrid wheels are 18s.

@Alpha.Romeo: If you're driving on poor roads then definitely go with 22s. I had 24s on my Tahoe a few years ago and it was like driving a Wrangler ... looked good tho. :)

lol you're welcome ... I only know cause I used to have one, but they didn't stay on for long and got replaced with 24s. :)

But the ride was too rough for me (also because of the drop), so I took the drop off and went to 22" CK375s:

I miss that Hybrid ... insane amount of modding went into it.

Hey guys

Thanks for your help !
I still like the look of 24" but as you all said I'm worried about the bad roads ...
Does any one have a picture of 22" aftermarket rims?
Unfortunately my wife doesn't like the originals...

Oh man, there are so many options and styles in aftermarket 22s, some as cheap as $1k for qa set some as much as $10k for a set.

One of my favorites are the chrome TBSS 22" rep wheels, but I've never seen them on an Escalade, just Tahoes: http://www.factoryreproductions.com/factory/pc/Trailblazer-SS-Chrome-c155.htm

Thx Soulsea
Damn they are somehow hot...
What makes it difficult is our so called TÜV (technical service) who might have some probs with them because normally replicas are notified as " no oem" ...
Difficult decision ...
Has anyone heard of DIABLO wheels? http://www.diablousa.com/vehicle-gallery/?album=1&gallery=5&nggpage=2

I had 26 inch Diablos on my escalade ( I just sold them ). I have boughten a lot of diablos over the years for my benzes etc. they are a good wheel and I like now you can paint the covers to match the car. They were strong wheels too and handled the rough Boston roads without a flat or bending the rim. The only thing that's a pain in the ass is in order to get to the lug nuts you have to remove like 6-7 screws each wheel because of the cover. And sometimes the covers get loose and you have to tighten them. Other than that, they are great inexpensive wheels.

I'm considering selling my OEM 22's with brand new tires and going to a black version of the OEM's.
