    Silverado Z71 on Escalade 22

    I just put these on today. More pics to follow. The drivers side has Escalade Platinum edition 14 spoke 22s and the passenger side has the more common regular Escalade 7 spoke 22s. Tire size is 285/45R22 All opinions/suggestions welcome. Which side you like more (or hate less )?

    Get better pictures first

    Honestly, both look too big to me, and the chrome is loud.

    I like the drivers side. I think they fit the lines of the truck better.

    Needs more tire. Then I'd probably like it better.

    Yeah honestly, I think they look a little funny myself. But they are growing on me a little bit. They look better in the pictures then they do in real life. I'll probably run these for the rest of October and then put my stock 16s back on for the snow.
    So far one of my friend's hates them and most of the rest of them are probably being polite. And a few of the younger guys at work think they look awesome. About 80% of the people like the 7 spoke better, me included. I honestly like the 14 spoke wheel better in general, just not on this truck.
    Another funny thing one of my friends mentioned is that the truck looks bigger and longer with those wheels. And its kinda true. Its a weird optical illusion.

    is there something wrong them? I think they'd look good on my dad's '00 Navy Z71. The 7 spokes look great on the new GMC Sierra Denalis

    I like the driver side rim more, but I think the passenger side rim looks better on your truck.

    One has a 3/4" chunk of the lip missing (see pic @ 5 o'clock position). Its barely noticeable, but the owner wanted it replaced. I paid the core charge for it and kept it. The other one came off a truck in our Body shop. The a 2.5" section of the lip was bent over and slightly cracked at the bend. I straightened out with a hammer and it started cracking a bit more. But its just cosmetic and doesn't affect the area where the tire actually seals to the rim. All four wheels are like that. Cosmetic damage you can only see up close. Thats how I got them so cheap.

    Like more tire sidewall or a more aggressive thread? Right now it just has SUV tires on it. They ride nice but I'd probably like something different if I were to keep them. There's about 3.75" of sidewall when measuring from the rim lip to the ground.
