Surprisingly, there are many 22" tire options in stock MX sizing and quite a few of them for less than $200 a pop. I am glad I checked. I originally opted for 20s but will change the order to 22s now...

Just a bit more info in this subject -- the latest MX configuration screens show a reduction in towing rating with 22" wheels. 20" wheels allows a 5000# rating, but using 22" wheels drops it to 3500#.

The issue is more related to tongue weight than trailer weight. Above 350lbs you should definitely take the 20" wheels.

I was surprised by that as well. I wonder how long they will last. The 21s don't have much longevity...

It's head-scratching to me that they offer 20" and not 19". I wonder why they created this further inconsistency with Model S. Maybe there's some fundamental way in which the wheels are different between Model S and Model X and they didn't want people putting the wrong wheels on?
