Why 22" Wheels on QX80? Should I switch?

Postby jared2 » Fri Nov 13, 2015 10:44 am

I'm picking up my new 2015 QX80 tomorrow, but it has the 22" rims (Wheel/Tire package). I don't really need them and I've heard it actually makes the ride...not as nice as with the 20" wheels...

Can anyone offer any input on this? It's an expensive package, and I'd rather not pay for it if I don't have to... (maybe they can switch off the tires for the standard ones and shaft the next guy...)

Thank you.

Jared

not sure where you "heard" that , but the 22s are a nice edition and dont harm the ride at all. ive a 2012 all options with the hbmc and the ride is smooth.

you have the touring package, hence the larger wheels. you are welcome to trade them for the 20s. im sure there would be someone who would do the trade...

Just picked up the truck today and I LOVE it! I loved the 2012, but they've really done a great job perfecting the QX80. The Drivers Assist tech is very nice and they've fixed a few of the tech issues that weren't as user friendly.

I give it a 9 out of 10, and yes, I like the 22" rims. My only fear is that my old QX barely fit in the garage (NYC public garage), and if this is 1" higher, it may not... A bit concerned about this.
