HELP
I have recently mounted a set of 22" Oasis B1's with Toyo proxes on my escalade, i notice two different sounds as s result of these new wheels.
I notice a rubbing sound in the inside of the wheel well when i turn a low speeds which i assume can be fixed by trimming the insided moulding and more importantly i notice a disturbing sound like metal bar being bent when i stop a bit more abruptly,

I want to know if anyone esle has experienced the same problems and how they can be resolved.

Thanks

i think as far as the fubbing goes...you can probably roll out ur fender some.....there's a technique that i say using a baseball bat.....not sure where i say it though.....and i honestly can't say that i've ever had that problem with my civic....oh wait....i'm using 13" rims :D

The first thing to do is look in the wheel well. You should see where the rtim has been scraping. If you see marks on the back of the wheel well & on any of the suspension arms, then go back to the shop you bought the rims from & have them supply you with spacers or refund/exchange the rims. They should know which sizes will fit your car without rubbing.

Is your Escalade lowered? That will change things...
