High Altitude Tire/Wheel Choices
Hi to all,
After enjoying my 2014 Limited for a few years, I'm looking at 2016 High Altitudes. I like the change back to the detent type shifter, as well as the air ride, and eco button default being set to "off" on start up. I'm not thrilled with the wheel and tire set up,though. The tires are Bridgestone Ecopia 422,which I'm sure is a great riding, highway tire, but not adequate for the type of winter driving that I have to do. I've got some Firestone Destination AT's on my Limited now that have a great balance of performance,looks, and comfort.
In addition,the black 5 spoke 20" rims are the design that was previously used on 2013 Altitudes and overlands with the sculpted spokes. I much prefer the 2014-15 Altitude rims with he wider flat spokes.
What has been the experience of having the dealers work with you to get the wheel and tire set up that you need/want? I've had responses from maybe, to no way from dealers when I asked about swapping somehow. I don't want to buy the vehicle and then have to buy and sell wheels and tires on my own to get it the way that I want. Any tips, strategies, experience appreciated.
