Stamped wheels are a typical attribute of budget cars, but an American photographer managed to capture a new-generation Cadillac Escalade on them.
“Stamping” is usually used only on budget cars or in basic configurations of models slightly higher than the entry level. Steel stamped wheels are simple and inexpensive to produce, but very heavy compared to light-alloy wheels and, of course, look unattractive. In the premium segment, they are used only as a temporary “rollover”, on which in an emergency you can drive to the nearest tire repair shop, but American photographer Justin Quinn Jacobson captured a new Cadillac Escalade in the Parking lot of a dealership in the United States on “stamps”.
As found out by the publication the Drive, photographed in the Parking lot of a GM dealer SUV on large steel wheels does not represent the basic equipment of the Escalade, as you might think. It is also impossible to order “stamps” for it. The fact is that these are temporary transport wheels, in which the SUV is put on for the duration of transportation on a car carrier – otherwise the Escalade on 22-inch alloy wheels in it simply will not fit in height. The wheels and tires for the SUV are transported separately, and the steel “stampings” are then sent back to GM by the dealer, interestingly enough.
