I am debating on putting 24'' on my truck, but I also need to pull a trailer with it. Will the bigger rims affect the amount of weight I can pull? Thanks

The 24's will only add weight to your Escalade. I am pretty sure you will be fine to pull a trailer. Keep in mind that the Escalade was built with plenty of extra horsepower and torque. 345 h.p. and the torque at 380. It's a beast.

Thanks.

Hey, I wasn't worried so much about the extra weight, but more of the tires being able to support the extra rear tounge weight...

yea it will be no problem and if it is just take the 24''s off and put the stockies on, then take it back to the dealer and have them fix it :wink:

I wouldnt worry about the truck, so much as I would worry about rubbing the tires. If you decide to do it, let us know how it works out. Me, my 24's, 3 guys, and 4 bikes are headed to myrtle beach in may and need to know if I should have someone else pull the trailer.

Got a buddy who tows his atv's every weekend to the dunes. He has 24"s, lowered 2/3 with no issues. Your air ride will make sure the rear doesn't give out. I would highly reccomend a big brake upgrade though if you decide to tow...or drive like 5 car lengths in the slow lane. He says the big brake upgrade (rotors and calipers) made a huge ass difference when he tows his atv's.
