anybody planning on wheels for their Telluride? the stock 20s are only 7.5" wide from something I've read... i want to order some rims before my Telluride arrives so i can put them on right away, but im trying to figure out what i can fit... i found a set i want, now i just need to figure out how wide i can go... and whether or not to jump up to 22s. i was looking at 20x9, or 20x10.5, but now im thinking maybe 22x9.5...thoughts?

hey fortune!

I am also looking to do an aftermarket wheel setup. Do you have the SX coming?

If so, why dont you wait and see how you like the stock wheels? if you go 9.5 wide, i would also go to a wider tire, like a 265 or 275. that would also help give it a beefier look.

this past weekend, i did a test fit of my old Axis Model 5 and they fit perfectly. the specs are 19 x 8.5, 114.3 bolt pattern, 35 offset. i am still deciding if i wanna use this wheel set or get new ones. decisions, decisions, decisions. LOL!370

Im noticing that most 20 in wheels on the site show 20 X 8.5. If i opted for the 20 X 10 would that just be a wider wheel? Sorry im totally new to purchasing wheels
hey brandon, correct 20 x 10 would be a 10 inch wide wheel. you'll need a pretty wide tire to fill that wide of a wheel. i think 20 x 10 would be overkill. a 20 x 8.5 wheel would go well with a 265 width tire. the stock 20 is only 7.5 inches wide running a 245 width tire.

on a related note, not all wheels are made by the same construction process.

avoid any wheel that is gravity cast, these are the weakest wheels. one bad pothole, and it will crack, a huge safety problem.

here's a simple list of wheel construction. there are others but these are the main constructions.

1. gravity cast - AVOID!!
2. low pressure cast - good
3. low pressure cast with flow formed or rotary forged - better
4. forged - best but super expensive.

hi brandon,

if you go with a 20 inch wheel, you'll need new tires. i suggest either the stock size of 245/50/20 or slightly wider 255/50/20. you won't need to calibrate the speedo. the wider 255 tire will only be off 1% on your speedo. for example, if your speedo reads 70mph, you're actually going 70.9 mph. a tiny difference.

I like them... Im not a fan of the factory 18s. Damn I wish the Everlasting Silver came with the Grey interior. That's the nicest color IMO
