Hello,
Wondering if anyone here has 22” wheels in iX.

How much is the range reduction, and if there is reduction in ride quality. TIA!!
I ordered an iX with 22' wheels because the model I test drove had 22" wheels on it and felt extremely comfortable and smooth to me, not sure how much better the 20" would be honestly. Range reduction from what I have researched online is only about 10 or so miles so not a big deal to me at all

About 5% reduction, which can make a difference on trips, depending on where you live.

Also consider that the 22s are low profile, so more susceptible to curb damage.

Personally, I went with 20s for max range.

Can you please share which among the two are more comfortable?

The ride is exceptional, regardless of the wheel. You may notice a different w/o the Dyn handling though.

I am concerned about 22s more susceptible to curb damage. I wonder if ride is comfortable or bit rough while driving on old road.

Can’t comment on the curb rash but ride quality is exceptionally smooth even on the 22s on an old rickety road I test drove on. Maybe the dynamic handling package makes a bigger difference 🤷🏻
