Mine is an EcoDiesel. It's definitely been negatively impacted, but by how much is hard to say. I've only owned the Jeep for about 3 weeks now: 1 week completely stock, 1 week with GDE tune, 1 week with GDE tune AND 22's.

Highway fuel economy seems to be about the same, but city driving has definitely tanked...it takes a lot more fuel to get these wheels moving from a stop. In mixed driving I'm probably down 1-2 MPG from the stock wheels.

Re: 22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

Its good to know. I have a 16 summit with the gde tune too so I kinda know what to expect. Was debating between 20x10 or 22x10.

Re: 22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

20x10's would save you some weight but you'll still be increasing rolling resistance and the air will have to move past a wider tire at highway speeds. Personally, I really like the way 22's look on our Jeeps.

Out of curiosity, what has your winter MPG been like? I'm in the midwest (St. Louis) and it's been worse than I expected so far. Before the 22's I was getting about 25mpg on 95% highway driving.

Re: 22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

I just ordered some xo 22 x10.5 all around and the 285-40-22 tires, for my 16 summit. Do you have any rubbing issues? Also in aero mode on the hwy is it rubbing at anytime like over bumps and what not? Just want to make sure this size works with the suspension in this summit.

Nice! I experience zero rubbing in aero mode. I've heard of others rubbing in park mode at full lock, but I have not had that issue. If you ordered +38 offset you should be good.

Re: 22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

Which tune did you go with and how are you liking it?

I'm running the GDE Hot Tune. I personally haven't noticed much of a difference in MPG, but I also got it right as it was getting cold outside. Low end power and drivability are definitely improved. The lag from a stop has been minimized and it actually feels fast when you jump on it.

22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

While 22" wheels are less aerodynamic (not sure by how much, if any noticeable difference) they're not all horrible on city fuel economy. A quality set of 22"s will weigh less than the OEM 20" Summit rims.

OP, ride looks great, btw. I was set on a Summit with 22s at one point but got an X5 instead of having to GCs in the garage lol

Re: 22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

Sweet good to know, I think I am ready to get 22s on my Summit.. I am looking at the same wheels here, 22 x 10.5 XO Caracas, with 305/35s... but with a mirror face and gray barrel. Hopefully the darker barrel will help hide brake dust and dirt

22x10.5 XO Caracas on Black Summit

285/40/22 vs 305/35/22- Before I pull the trigger on my wheels, why do people chose the 285/40 vs 305/35 tire?

I want to upgrade my Summit wheels because I want some fatter wheels to be more flush with fenders on wheel well.

I am looking at getting these xo Caracas 22x10.5 with +35 all the way around.

I was going to get the 305/35/22 tires, but after looking at them I'm thinking they might be too low profile for me.

So why not do the 285/40? What are the pros & cons vs the 305/35?

My concerns are

My Summit is lowered about an inch with the DIY links,so I don't want rub

Messing up 4x4 if I ever need to use factory spare

Keeping ride as close to factory as possible , in regards to Noise & roughness..

I am almost starting to think about just getting the 20 x 10s..

Thanks all!

There is hardly any difference in the amount of sidewall for 305 vs 285. With 305 you can keep the stock spare for short distances. Both will risk pothole/curb damage. Neither should rub with 1" lowered. Noise will depend more on the type of tire you get.
