Wheel options for 2015 Suburban: Help me choose.

Hey guys, I own a luxury transportation company here in St. Louis and just picked up a black on black 2015 Suburban LT to transport high end clients to and from business meetings/airport/dinner etc therefore I need to keep it somewhat professional looking. I think i would prefer to stay with the oem wheels and have narrowed it down to 4 choices.

sorry for the crappy pics but its not easy to find the new body suburban with wheels yet so i dont have much to work with.

i really like the gloss black wheels but afraid they dont look professional for the job.









also if anyone knows of any better looking wheels that will work please share as well, id like to get a set soon so please tell me what you think as im on the fence.

If it was my personal ride, #1 for sure, but since it's to transport clients, #3 IMHO.

Agree with all above. What's wrong with stock? Stock Denalis look professional enough for your purpose. They're chrome just like #3

For a limo, agree on #3. Especially with the chrome trim and door handles, think you gotta do the chrome wheels .

If you got stock chromies those are what Id roll on. I thought #3s are the factory wheels, that's why I picked em.

You've got your pictures out of order there mate. #3 in the first post is #2 in the eighth post. I vote for #3 in first post as well.

I was under the impression that you already picked up your Denali and have whatever wheels that came with it.... Is the dealer letting you pick whatever wheels you want?

For clients, I'd rather have the 18s. Cheaper tires, and a more comfortable ride. Clients aren't impressed with wheels unless their name beings with a number, like 50. I'd save my money and spend it on yourself, like a nice watch.

It does, but bada$$ doesn't equal class. Donald Trump doesn't roll around in a murdered out truck if you know what I mean.

im not getting it for the clients. im in this car all day and hate looking at those tiny 18's on such a huge truck. spend 2k on 22's and sell 18's for 1k, not bad.

Well, in that case, my vote sticks at #3. Clean and classy. However, if you can get the ones in the second set of photos for a better price or in better shape, I wouldn't mind them either.
