I have 24 hrs to decide on the stock 20" wheels or 22" wheels. I know it's been debated ad naseum, but I was wondering if anyone who has the 22" had any experience with bending or popping tires on them. Also, I'm in NJ so I'm sure the 22" tires with the pirellis are not going to be safe, so I would need to change them to snow/winter tires.
If I wanted more tire height, has anyone used 265/40/22 and 285/40/22 on them instead of the 35s?
Are the 20" all season tires good in the snow? Would I need to get winter tires for them anyways?
I'm thinking that I should buy the 22" off ebay, put on snow tires, ride them year round. When it's time to return the leased MX, put back on the original new wheels and tires so they can't charge me for worn tires.
I absolutely hate the way it looks with the 20s. I'm a huge wheel person who thinks it makes or breaks a car. If 22" are an issue with damage and the winter, I may just cancel my order altogether.
Any guidance would be appreciated. I've spent 4 hrs a day for the past 6 days researching on this forum and another. My head is ready to explode.
