Ok, I think I would look for some 20" wheels that I like. Would the '35mm tall side walls' apply for the 20s as well or that's just for the wheels >22"? Thanks to all who gave advice.

You will want to get the same 20" tire size that comes with those Palisade models that have 20" tires as OEM. That will make sure that the overall diameter of the tire is the same, and that your speedometer, odometer, and transmission will work as designed. That would be 245/50 R20 per the Owners Manual. That way you don't have to worry about the how tall the side wall is.

The OEM wheel size is 7.5J X 20, but an 8" wide wheel should work fine.

My wife's car. Niche Rainier M240 22x9, Offset 42 with Continental 275/40ZR22 tires. Aside from a very slight rub at full lock they fit perfect and they ride pretty nice as well.
Really nice work John, looks awesome.
Please let us know where we can find that grill.
Thanks,

what do you think about upgrading the 20 to 20 x 8.5 or 20 x 9, and use 265/50/20 tires?

Here's my take. It makes no sense to kill the utility of an SUV with 22" wheels, not to mention they'd ride like crap. But most importantly, you'd be adding unsprung weight, which would not only decrease fuel mileage, but make the already marginal performance of a Palisade feel like a dog, decreasing acceleration, increasing braking distance, and decreasing handling too. And getting over potholes and such would feel awful, compared to lighter wheels and tires. But it's your SUV :). Typically, you DO NOT want to add ANY extra weight on wheels and tires. If you want wheels, go with forged ones that are lighter, and at least equally strong as stock, and with the same size OEM tires, so you have some benefits. And I can't stress enough how important is to make sure whatever wheels you buy are at least as strong as OEM. You don't want a wheel (or two) breaking on a curve when you're with the family on a trip. Good luck.

Normally, when going to a wider tire, it is best to maintain as close as is reasonably possible to the total tire diameter as the OEM tire, so that the speedometer, odometer, and transmission work as designed. A tire that is too much larger diameter may also create clearance problems in some cases.

Since the OEM is 245/50 R20, going to a 265/50 R20 tire would be 2.7% (0.8") larger diameter than the OEM tire. If using a 265/45 R20 instead, that would be 0.7% (0.2") smaller diameter than OEM, so that would be closer to the OEM diameter, but the lower aspect ratio will make for a slightly harsher ride (although lots of cars have 45 aspect ratio tires these days).

I have no idea about whether a 265 width tire will fit in the Palisade wheel-well without causing any problems. But best to keep the new tire diameter at or below OEM diameter just in case.

To compare the diameter of two different tires, use this website and select the Tire Comparison tab.

They are 22"x9 wheels with a +35 offset. Tires are 265/35/R22. Got lucky that continental sells the DWS06 that size as it was my favorite on the audi.

Literally got it to the tire shop straight from the dealer and they asked the mileage. When I said "Twenty" they said "Twentyyyyyyyy......", then I replied "Twenty". Couldn't get the pablo picasso rims off fast enough.

Getting the grill and bumper wrapped only cost about $150 and about 3 hours of my time. The window tints were 30% to match the rear and cost $90.

Any more pics of the front end? Would love to see what the grill/lower trim looks like wrapped

Hello All. My apologies for delayed response. A lot going on here in the last few months for me, as well for all of us. Yes, the wheels are 22x10.5 ET 38. IICrave #34. Mated with 275/40r22 tires. Wheel/tire ever-so-slightly poke in front..."tight" flush in rear. Im thinking an ET40 would be optimum. 275/40r22 slighty rubs on passenger front inner fender (towards back of vehicle) at full lock. Weird that it doesn't rub on driver front. If I were to do it again, I'd run 285/35 (maybe 275/35). All good though.

Cheers
What’s the offset ?

That’s the gayest thing I’ve ever read. That says a lot in 2021…
The 20's will provide a much smoother ride. Another side benefit of 20's is that they are much less likely to be damaged by pot holes, because there is more rubber between the rim and the road on a 20, as compared to 22.

Whenever I am in a shopping center parking lot or something, and I see someone next to a car with 22's, I like to yell to them "hey buddy, someone stole your tires?"

It says a lot about you that you’re using the adjective “gayest” in 2021 to describe something negatively…
You are correct..freedom of speech is long gone...so glad to have lived my entire life and never has anyone ever said anything to me or about me
that was negative...
