    Cool! But, do the front hubs fit through the center hole on the wheel? This has been my stumbling block on these newer truck wheels?

    Thanks,
    John

    Those look cool on there. My dad has put set of Escalade 17's on his '02 silverado and '99 Tahoe. Here is a trick for the center caps if you only have the onew with the caddy wreath and crest. You can get a plain center cap off of a 4wd aluminum wheel from 95-99 Tahoes or pickups. The cap is of the same size and shape, just plain.

    Since all of the rap stars and celebrities are slapping 20's and 22's on Escalades, the price for used Escalade wheels is getting less and less by the day!

    Im going to leave the center caps off the front probably because they wont fit with the front hubs unless I get a hole cut in those too.

    I figured that on the front, but the the wheels are not real detailed in the center to look nice without the caps. But the good news is the caps are plastic on the inside with the metal skin on the outside. Fairly easy to cut. Some are taking the cad caps, cutting a hole in the center and installing a large hex head through the hole to close it and eliminate the wreath and crest. This sounds wierd but my dad took a set of spinners from a 57 chevy hubcap and mounted them on the caps of the escalade wheels on his silverado. When he told me what he did it sounded like he should have just put some gold dayton wires on it if he wanted that look, but after seeing it the caps look slick. Not that would be the choice in your case, but it illiustrates how easy it is to cut the caps.

    I checked the width on them and they are 7.5" wide, and they have a safety bead too.
