I'm looking at going to 24" wheels (24x10 - +31 offset).
It looks like the following options for tires:
305/30/24 - I think these are too wide and will rub
295/35/24
285/40/24

I'm thinking 295/35/24 is the best option.
I do not want to rub or make modifications and I am not lowering the vehicle.
Any suggestions?

Thanks!

295/35/24 is the best ... the 305s will rub more and I hear can have clearance issues if you have the power assist steps, 285 look too small on 24s imo.

The 295s will probably rub a tiny bit up front backing up at full lock ... mine did but it was so minor I never even bothered heat gunning the liners.

Yeah 295/35/24 will be your best bet. Issue will be finding good brand tires in that size without going with some non popular tire manufacturer.

I actually preferred the performance of my Nittos to that of the Fortera and Alenza ... nothing beats the Pirelli tho. Not that ELUSVE asked anyway. :)

I ran 305/35/24 on my bagged burban and will migrate those wheels onto my Esky this spring. I had a slight rub up front at full lock on the rear portion of the fender. Like Soulsea mentioned, a heat gun and slight manipulation cured that.




On the move:

305/35/24's will not rub with the correct offset wheels, every set of gm wheels we make gets tested on my trucks. :)
Thanks Carl. What is the correct offset for a 24x10 wheel?

thats a super drop. how does the front wheel turn if its tucked in there like that.
That truck is bagged, when on the roll it's up unless I'm low speed cruising it in a straight line. There's a little room to turn because dumped the camber tows in the the top of the wheel a bit. I never really drove it that way. It was essentially on the bump stops in those shots.

Does anyone know the correct offset for a 24x10 wheel?

E, as I understand it there is a range, although I'm not sure what the edges of it are.

Our stock rims are offset 30/31mm and I'm sure you don't want any more than that on a 24x10 before they start rubbing everywhere ... my 24x10s that I had on my Tahoe had a 20mm offset because I wanted them flush with the rear fender, but any more than that and they would have stuck out.

So I guess the aesthetic range is somewhere tween 20mm and 30mm.

That helps S, thanks.
The ones that I'm looking at are 24x10 +31.

So you think those will stick out?

No it goes in the opposite direction. :)

A 22x10 with a 20mm offset sticks out more than a 20x10 with a 31mm offset.

The wheels you are looking at have the same offset as your oem ones so the edge of the wheel will stick out 1/2" more. However since you're only moving 10mm in tire width, your entire rim/tire combo will only stick out 5mm more than what you have now (22x9 285/45). Give or take a few mm variation in tire brand footprint.

Basically not much will change in regards to sticking out/tucking if you go up an inch in wheel width but keep offset the same.

----------

Btw, unless one goes with staggered wheels or offsets (not recommended on AWD), it's next to impossible to line both the front and rear with any one wheel size.

With a 24x10 30mm offset you'll be flush in front but slightly tuck in the back, same wheel 20mm offset you'll be flush in the back and stick out a mm or two in the front.

A 25mm offset I guess would be right, but I've never had that on my truck so I'm just guessing.

Thanks for the info!
Looks like I'm going 24x10 +31 with 295/35/24.

Now i just need to wait for no more snow to get these all setup and on. :)

That's the proper wheel/offset combo for 24s ... are you doing a drop?

The only reason I ask is that without a drop, and because of a lot less sidewall on the tires, 24" wheels can often give the impression of jacking up the SUV.

Here'a few pics for comparison:



24x10 w/o drop:



24x10 w 2/3 drop:



22x9 w/o drop:

Wasn't planning on dropping as I don't think that's a wise idea in Colorado given our potential for snowfall and we're in the mountains going over passes quite a bit.
I'll have to see what it looks like with the 24's on and go from there.
Thanks for the perspective pics though. :D
