22-inch wheels? good or bad?

Recommended Posts

I have the 22's on my Reserve II and I'd have to say that to do it over again I'd go with the 20's instead.  22's look great but the ride is definitely not as smooth even on a perfect road, especially above 50 mph.  On the other hand, I'm in WI and so far they seem okay in the snow despite the low profile so no complaints there.

I have 24" joe Martin vamps on my 2005 aviator with 305/35/24's on the back & 295/35's on the front & it's perfect couldn't go a co more on the front but the rides better than the factory 17's & looks sharp!

Interesting discussion.  I have a new 2021 Reserve with standard suspension and 20" wheels and it rides much more harshly than my 2005 Lexus RX330 SUV and way more harshly than my 2007 Jaguar Vanden Plas (but that one does have pneumatic suspension).   I think one issue is the tire pressure.  The door sticker recommends 34 psi in the front and 38 in the back.  But here's the kicker, the sticker says maximum weight for passengers and cargo is 1461 pounds.  I guess that’s inside and maybe PLUS tongue  weight of a heavy trailer.   Most of the time around town it’s just me and maybe one passenger so the payload is over 1000 more than I typically have in the car.  I assume Lincoln errors on the side of safety so they have one-size-fits-all tire pressure that assumes maximum payload.   Any thoughts on adjusting tire pressure based on usage at the time?
