Hi -

I'm new to this forum. I just purchased a 2014 Escalade Luxury Edition with 22" wheels. I want to install front mud flaps but Weathertech says not on 22" rims. Do the GM mud flaps PN 19212797 work for the front wheels. Looks like the clearance would be very close. Any pics would help, too. Thanks.

There's a thread on here that covers exactly what you're talking about (with pics too). I just ordered the weathertechs for my Escalade which has the 22" rims and power running boards (weathertech says you can't put them on with either of those). Members with both say they fit, but it's tight. If you have power running boards, like I do, you'll have to slide them back. Not difficult to do from what I hear.

They come this week and I'll put them on this weekend. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I have the weathertechs with 22" rims. There are no fitment issues at all. Great product and I am very happy with them. Solid, very little flex. Not sure why weathertech says not for 22's.

I saw that thread. My concern is whether there is a difference in dimensions with the 2014 Escalade. I will look forward to your pics. Since I don't have power running boards, I'm only concerned with the front wheel clearance. Thanks for your help.

The weathertech flaps arrived so I threw them on today. Super easy install like they say. Only additional work I had to do was slide my power running boards back. That was easy as well, just have to have the right allen wrench size to loosen the slide. The flap color matches the unpainted plastic on the running board, top of rear bumper, and rear windshield wiper so it doesn't really stick out.

As far as tire clearance I have oversized tires and they do not rub the flap. It's close when turning the wheel but it doesn't touch. I drove up and down driveways and streets at different angles and it never rubbed.

I'm having issues downloaded pics from my phone so I'll post tomorrow from my computer.
