Just updating on my Hummer. About 1700 miles thus far. It's amazing how many people have stopped by my house to look at it, have waved/honked, and stopped to take photos when I'm out. The attention is wild.

I love driving it. Super Cruise is really cool!

Only complaints:
-the power tonneau hardcover is finicky. It tends to stick and doesn't work great. I have to pull on it to get it to close completely.
-the google "Hey google" is slow and doesn't respond correctly 50% of the time. Perhaps an over-the-air update can correct it.
-it's so difficult to find somewhere to wash it. I have an F250 diesel that is about the same width and haven't had trouble washing it. The F250 is lifted 3" and has wider/taller tires than the Hummer. But, I've taken the Hummer to 3 car washes and they've all refused. The Zax car wash attendant said "tell him he can NEVER bring that back here again." Shocking. The truck looks (& is) wide, but really isn't wider than my Super Duty truck. I understand that some people don't like automatic car washes (please save me your opinion on them), but I have so little extra time to manually wash it with a sprayer. If anyone knows of a place that I can take it in Commerce/Novi/Milford/West Bloomfield MI, that would be appreciated!

I had it wrapped black. The wheels are 24"x11" Fuel D741 which are powdercoated bronze, with Federal MTS 35x12.50x24 tires.

The ride on the new wheels seem to be about the same as the stock wheels/tires. I'm keeping the stock ones for winter time, as they'll do better than these MTS tires. These tires are slightly louder though, but I've read that they'll quiet down after a few thousand miles.

The door inner frames weren't wrapped, although I don't seem to notice that. The interior is a mix of white/light grey/black/bronze, so the white door frame doesn't stand out.

Those photos from Midnight Protective Films are of my truck. They also put a protective film on the windshield, because it's nearly vertical and at high risk of chips/cracks from flying rocks.

@Dark-Fx, what recalibration routine are you doing? Is there something that's supposed to correct?

The wrap and wheel combo looks AWESOME!!! What offset are those 24"s and do you know what the offset is on the stock wheels are?
My apologies for the delayed response.

The stock wheels are 18x9. I measured the backspacing to be 6-3/16" +/- 1/16". When I bought the new 24" x 11" wheels (8x165.1 spacing, 0-offset), I aimed to match the same backspacing, to avoid issues with them rubbing on the suspension.

There are wheel offset calculators that can determine the stock offset, though I haven't done that.

Thanks Malaigned for the info!!! The stance on your EV is perfect!!

Do you know the center bore of the stock wheel and if they are hub centric or lug centric?

Bolt spacing is 8x180? Others say its 8x6.5 (8x165.1)

Sorry for all the questions, just not enough info out there on the web regarding Hummer EV wheels and I can't take off a wheel because I don't have a jack that can lift a minimum of 2500lb.

Thanks
You are correct — it’s 165.1 bolt spacing. I fixed my post above.

The hubs are 117mm. The bore on the new wheels is 125, so I used hub centric rings to fill the gap.

These are a couple photos showing how far the tires are past the fenders. They're 35 x 12.50 x 24" tires, which are essentially the same diameter and width of the stock tires.

The wrap was $4500. I think they gave me a discounted rate, as they used it for social media.
