I was wondering whether to get 24's or 26's for my ESV. I currently have factory 22's but they just look small to me considering the size the vehicle lol. My main concerns are rubbing, ride quality won't really bother me since the 22s have an average ride quality. I was also wondering what spec's should I go for.

You are in south Florida, roads and weather are not an issue to beat your roads up, go big if you go 26's you better put big brakes on if you drive fast

Deff go with the 26's. I'm in Tampa and i have 26's on mine. Ride Quality isnt that bad and it should only rub when you have the wheel completely turned.

I've got 24's but 26's definately look better. 26's for looks, 24's for ride. You could really get crazy and go with the stock 18's. :)

26's for sure. If you live in an area with good roads, the ride quality difference is almost un-noticable between 24's-26's. People tends to have buyers remorse for getting some thing too small and want to upgrade some thing bigger later.

you guys with 26's, that arent rubbing. what offset are your wheels?? by buddy just got some 24's, and his rub everytime he makes a tighter turn. im in the process of deciding between 24's and 26's myself.

26's...Go Big or Go Home. If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch.

24's have more centralized mass, and are lighter. so technically, the 24's will run with the big dogs better. :D

i know what you mean, but i couldnt help saying it.

I'm still trying to figure out, whats the offset everything is running on 24x10 or 26x10 wheels? 25mm? I just want to make sure I get the CORRECT offset before I get my new wheels.

My 24x10 wheels with an offset of 15mm stuck out a little bit about 1/2 inch. They were a perfect fit on my old 2002 escalade but for newer escalades you must have a minimum offset of 31mm otherwise the wheels will stick out. Now I'm running 26x10 32mm offset sitting tucked.
