Hey guys,

Just seen advertised a guy is selling his 22" rims and tires off a d22 Navara. From the photo I seen it looks awesome, but is it legal? Advised? I don't do any off road driving, so that wouldn't worry me.

Has anyone seen a d22 with wheels like that?

Whats everyones opinion on that sort of thing?

Thanks, Brad.

I think they guy realise's just how much of a dick he looks like. That's why he's selling them.

And no, they aren't legal by a long shot.

Someone else one this forum had 22's or 24's on their D40. To me I couldn't think of anything worse, my clients want a smooth ride while they get their hair done, they don't want to risk having their throats slashed every time we run over a stone

They look good on d40's. See them around quite a lot. Never on a d22, it would be interesting to say the least.

Yeah I'd recommend them for someone elses D22 as well. The type of person who puts 22's or bigger on a 4wd (any 4wd) is playing with 2 dicks, you just can't get that silly playing with only one.

Any idea on the price of replacement tyres to suit them when they wear out? I don't imagine they'd be cheap

All these guys hanging shit on big rims, and you just hold your ground like they're not even there - massive respect. :adore:

I couldn't agree more. my stepfather used to always say "one man's pleasure is another man's poison". life would be very "vanilla" if we all liked everything the same. :pleasantry:

Besides the looks, the ride will be terrible, and the cost of tyres!, they'll wear out so quick.

Honestly I think they make the vehicle look like it's one step away from being a pimp wagon. If I owned a black D22 and could get shag pile roofing carpet I'd go for it,

Not something I would do but its not my car so good luck with it.

I often see a black D22 in Singleton with 22's or there abouts on it.

He toes a builders trailer all the time so I doubt it see's much offroad use.

Looks like I'm all alone. I dont do much/any off-road driving, so its purely cosmetic.

Mate it sounds like you're looking for approval for these rims. Like Nismo says it's your choice just because not everyone likes them doesn't mean you can't. You yourself said you want them for cosmetic reasons if that's the case you've justified them.

Also taking what Dave said about the guy he sees towing a trailer into account make sure you understand the limitations of the new rims in relation to the load you can tow. Just because the Nav can tow 2.8T (or whatever the D22 can tow) doesn't mean it will tow that much with those rims. You might never use the Nav as a 4WD but changing rims and tyres may have a remarkable effect on the towing capacity of the vehicle.

Actually that should probably read legal and insurable capacity because it probably wont change the fact that a Nav can still pull 2.8T.

I don't like the look much, but they wouldn't be practical for me anyway.

It's up to you mate.

its not too bad. somethine a bit different. and if ur not going to use it off road y not. tend to think that looks better than the low ones :) least its still as high as a 4wd should b :)
like someone said, everyone has their own tastes and thre is absolutely nothing wrong with that. go for it if u want them :)

They dont look too bad on the black D22, not my personal choice but for an on roader they would look the goods, might look better if lowered without the big gap from guards? I'll stick with my CSA Monsters with my BFG's for now....

if u work in the brisbane city area there is a new 09-10 d22 navara that has been lowered with 22" rims on it,,,personally if u buy a 4x4 use it as a 4x4 even if that means chopping ur hands off and pulling ur eyes out if u look at rims with low profile tires,,, thats just personal opinion...i hate 4wd with big rims and now tire...

cheers

I reckon they look good too mate.
You can always keep your standard wheels to change back to if you need to go off road.
