I just bought a 2008 GL450. I basically want to put the wheels and tires from a gl550 on my truck. Will they fit? Also where is the tire pressure monitor? Can it be switched between wheels?
Thanks

if i were you, i'd go 22"

22s with 305/40/22. the tires are way cheaper. you can get Falken ziex with 50k mi warranty. 305/40s for anywhere between $140-170. you'll end up spending less and they look awesome. very wide and sporty. downside is the overall diameter is a few mm taller. so your speedo will be slightly off by a couple mph. but i think its worth the trade off. Looks better and they're cheaper. 22s with et50 offset.

So pretty. Love your wheels. Could you tell me your wheel and tire sizes please.

Looks like you have the twin to my wifes GL. Do you have more pictures from different angles? I was looking at adding those same wheels, but in a 20" size so allow her more "curb hopping" ability. :rolleyes:

Also, are they the gunmetal version or silver?

Thanks!
