Hi all,

Quick question for anyone that has the 22" wheel package... Is your spare underneath the cargo area also a 22" wheel & tire? My car was with the Deluxe Tech pack, so was supposed to have the 22" pack as a mandatory add. Originally, the dealer had swapped back on the standard 20's, and I had them put the 22's back on while taking delivery.

Long story short, it never occurred to me to check the spare until yesterday! Yup, it's the standard 20" wheel & tire. I wanted to know if I need to demand they change that out (months after the fact), too... Which will be a fun battle.

Thanks

You should since they really can't expect you to drive around on a spare like that. Before going in to the dealership you might want to contact Infiniti. At least then when you walk into the dealer you can say "also Infiniti said __________ and __________" just incase they give you a hard time.

Keep us posted on how it goes.

On my 13 QX56 (with Deluxe Tech), the spare was a 20", even though I had the 22's. I traded that for a 16 QX80 Limited and I just checked and that spare is also a 20". I'm pretty sure that if they told you that your QX came with a 22" spare along with the , they were just flat-out wrong.

Now, if they promised to replace the 20" with a 22", that's a different story and that's their nickel. But given that the Limited comes with everything Infiniti offer's on the QX80 and it doesn't have the 22" spare, I don't think that a 22" spare is an official option. You can check it out on the Infiniti website but I can't find where you can add a 22" spare.

Next question, would a 22 inch spare even fit where its mounted? Unless its running a tire with a profile low enough to allow for it to fit.

Well, if it were a different overall diameter, that would cause major problems using the 20" as a spare on all cars with the 22" package!

I thought I had closed this thread out already from my phone, but apparently it didn't post properly a month ago...

I wanted to pass along the info that I actually, shockingly, read the owners manual! It states that the spare wheel is always a 20" rim, regardless of having 20"s or 22"s fitted to the main driving wheels.

So, there you have it.
