    Thread: Show me your Atlas with different wheels

      That looks like a sharp wheel, lets see it on the Atlas. Only issue I see is $400+ a wheel w/o tire

      You posted about the Gianelle wheel. I looked them up and it looked really nice and would love to see how it looked on an Atlas. The price that pulled up was $400+ per rim.

      that's the largest combo that will fit without rubbing or modifications. The wheel wells look empty IMHO with anything less than 22's, its a huge car.

      With 285/40/22 tires, you'll have pretty much the same wheel well as in post #88.

      Yup, and thats about the max, the same rims is 10.5 width won't fit, the 9.0 is maximum width without rub, going more than 2" bigger than stock in diameter is also asking for trouble.

      Apologies, didn't realize you might be having trouble seeing the picture I posted if you're using your phone. I did post a pic of the rims on my atlas, try a desktop device. They are pricey, but worth it! I sold the OEM rims for $800 so that took the sting out of the $1600 upfront cost a little.

      No worries. Yeah no picture on my phone or ipad for some reason. I will try my laptop later tonight. That definitely helps offset the cost. My only issue is when I trade in and have aftermarket wheels every dealer has asked if I still have originals.

      Where did you sell the OEM rims? I think if I could sell my OEMS for that I would definitely more to some aftermarkets sooner. Take-offs never seem to have much value in my experience.

      Kijiji here in Canada,

      Craigslist in the US would be the equivalent.

      What would be the implications (pros/cons) to performance, safety, fuel economy, ride comfort, braking and tire wear.

      i am interested in doing one or the other and not both and which would be cheaper?

Ended up with 22'' Giovanna Haleb, they still need to put a centric ring because of Atlas' skinnier center bore. So far I'm not seeing any decrease in MPG(about 19 with LA's traffic and around 24 without traffic on freeway). This is even higher than what the sticker says so maybe the car's MPG counter is not accurate.

      I am in the same boat. I would love to see the Atlas with those on.

      This is what I'm planning on doing. Tried to photoshop somewhat to spec.
      2" lift
      Wheels are supposed to be 18"
      Tires are clearly too big for stock fenders but I plan on modding it to fit something like this

      There's an ever so slight chance I'll be transferring to Montreal or Germany... so winter wheels will be required.

      Looks like OZ makes their Rally wheel in an Atlas fitment. These would be perfect in the snow, because the R-line wheels were a real PITA in the deep stuff.

      I'd like to put more aggressive AT tires on when the oems wear out. How do you plan on doing the 2" lift? This? https://alpenoffroad.com/shop?olsPag...s-2-front-axle
