I came up with a couple looks for the new Escalade with HRE Wheels. I know Brembo also offers a GT Brake upgrade for the Escalade. Hopefully I'll get to some 3/4 views soon. Kindly let me know what you think.
Nope, not big enough spokes for an SUV. Everyone has their own tastes though. From HRE the only wheels id put on an Escalade are the 940RL series. 943 and 948 are my favorites. I almost pulled the trigger, but it was going to be $12000 for a pair of 4 configured the way I wanted them, and that was before tires. Maybe the p and s series wheels are cheaper. If you like split spokes, id look at the Gianelle Bologna wheel. I ran those last summer.
This time I went with a different wheel that looks quite similar to the 943RL but significantly cheaper. The Gianelle Santo 2SS. I'll post pics once I get them installed.
HRE vs Gianelle
as for brakes, I would look at Baer. A lot cheaper. I confirmed with them they do have a kit available that works on 15s.
OneStepAhead, is this closer to what you're going for?
It seems like the premium for HRE's is a sticking point. Considering they're truly manufactured in the U.S. with a lifetime warranty is somewhat reasonable. Their TUV Certification is also important over the lifetime of ownership. Brembo is also TUV Certified and is the OEM supplier for GM braking systems. With their internal knowledge of GM's OEM specs, it's a a safe bet their GT system is engineered properly to enhance performance on 15s.
