    22-inch wheels? good or bad?

    As per the door pillar label listing the tire pressure specs: 42 rear 38 front I dropped the front and rear tires pressures 3 lbs each and it made no difference.

    22-inch wheels? good or bad?

    I just got the Aviator back from the dealer explaining to them the ride complaint. The short answer is after they took it for a ride: Its designed to ride like that due to the low profile tires. The tech also added that he drives a pickup truck and my Aviator rides much better than his truck. IMHO, it should not ride hard with alot of road noise. Hell, my Durango SRT set on Track Mode rode better with zero road or tire noise than the Aviator.

    22-inch wheels? good or bad?

    My 2020 Aviator RII with 22’s is going back to the dealer on Monday for hard harsh ride conditions. One tire out of the 4 could not be road force balanced to anywhere near specs. Replaced under warranty. 2 of the tires are under 5 lbs of road force. The other 2 are 6 lbs and 10 lbs. The ride is not luxurious and quiet! The ride is more like....this sucks. I have the dynamic handling package and the ride setting is set on Normal. If you select Excite it just makes the ride harder. I have owned 3 Escalades and 2 Denali’s all with 22’s and their ride was luxurious for sure. My last 3 previous vehicles were 2 Durango SRT’s and a Jeep SRT. Again they rode much better than this Aviator. Hopefully the dealer can figure it out.

The new tire took away the vibrations, but the ride still remains hard and the road noise is irritating. Feeling every crack and uneven road surfaces.

    Windshield issues

    Update: I took it to a buddy of mine that runs a windshield glass shop and at first he thought the windshield had internal imperfections in it as the rest of us. He would not attempt to replace it though since it would be covered under warranty. He looked at it closer and he thought it felt and looked like overspray! He took foamy window cleaner and a new single edge razor blade and lo and behold it cleaned right up! He grabbed some acetone, window cleaner and a few new single edge razor blades went to work. My windshield is perfectly clear now. My Aviator was not around any paint spray since I brought it home so it must have happened before I purchased. What a difference.

    My Aviator experience

    I had a an Escalade and Denali bought back by GM a few years ago. What type of issues did you have with your 2 Aviators for Lincoln them to buy them back?

    Windshield issues

    Flashlight works and shows a small area, where as a low sun shining thru lights up the entire windshield. Its almost like a haze, similar to it being sandblasted.

    New Aviator owner with concerns

    Tires were road force balanced using a Hunter. One tire the best they could get was 47 lbs, the other 3 were (3,4,10). So they are going to replace the one bad tire. The tires on the Aviator with the 22's are lined with acoustic foam to keep the road noise down. Still have to get the rough engine idle issue looked at. Windshield has tiny pits in it. Must be a million of them in the entire windshield, looks like a haze. You can only see them when the sun is low and directly at the windshield. Looks like another forum member has the same issue.

    Windshield issues

    I'm glad someone else has noticed this. I have the same exact issue. Low sun shining thru the windshield and it looks like the windshield has the same tiny pinhole effect as yours. Its certainly not clear, almost like a haze. When I first noticed the "haze" I tried to clean the windshield which I thought I did, until the next time the sun had shone through it, did I realize what it was. Tiny pinholes.

    Not aware of it at the time of the 5 mile test drive. Noticed the next morning after we got it home and the dealership was closed on Sat, plus the holiday weekend.

    I took a couple pounds of air out of the tires to see if that would help any but, did not make in a difference. I also noticed about the engine rough idle. Does it when cold only. When its been just shut off or warm it does not have the roughness to it. Pretty smooth.
  12. just brought home my new Lincoln Aviator Reserve with the Dynamic Handling Package, Reserve II, Tow Package, Illumination Package, Convienence Package and the ride with the 22 inchers on it does not ride very well at all. A harsh ride and a ride that feels like there is a tire out of balance? Rides like its on a wash board. Also, the engine on start up runs rough for approx 30 seconds then smooths out to whisper quiet. Is this the nature of the beast or should it go back to the dealer for a service visit?
