2007 GL450 22x8.5 rims - what tires?
Recently I got myself a 2007 GL450. One of the previous owners have installed 22x8.5 rims with Nitto NT420s tires in 285/40 R22. When I got the car it had 40.5psi at the back and 39.5psi on the front. The ride was very bumpy. I have deflated tires to 32psi and ride is a little better. 2tires are bad and needs to be replaced soon. 2 tires are ok. I am trying to decide my course of action.
Option #1 - get myself 2 new Nitto tires of the same size and call it a day
Option #2 - replace all 4 tires with new Nittos
Option #3 - purchase stock 19" wheels and go for a different size
Option #4 - switch to 265/40 R22 tires and go with Pirelli Scorpion Zero or Hankook Ventus or Toyo Proxes
Option #5 - switch to 275/45 R22 Hankook Ventus
I was leaning towards the Option #4, but after little more research I think Option #5 is the most attractive at this time.
What do you guys think?
