    Hey guys anyone experienced the ride with a 22" wheel here? Thinking of changing from my 19" to a 3rd party 22" but worries about the ride.

    Also need to know if the new wheels will affect air suspension and is there any special configuration to do for the tpms situation?

    Thanks all!

    If you are married, better consult your family. My wife has already said that 19" is the best she can tolerate. Some ladies don't like bumping ride.

    i strongly suggest not too, i wanted to go 22", I'm so glad i didn't. For HK, it scratches too easily. Too easy to curbed by sidewalk, or pothole! not enough tire protection.

    One thing I've overlooked guys is the tire pressure monitoring trouble. Has anyone had any experience switching to oem wheels and dealing with the tpms? I have no idea where to start with that!

    before you order the wheels, just make sure they can support factory tpms, its pretty straight forward, just swap them out.

    Yikes! 21's are just enough of a problem for me. I can't imagine 22's.

    Yeah cool I'll keep working on this project of mine. I just saw a dude drive by the other day with 22" and it's decided it's happening pot holes or not.
