Great memory, yes do recall that now.

Maybe I’m a little crazy but that rim somehow seems smaller than 21” to me. I bet in real life that wouldn’t be the case tho.

For me the deterrent with the 22s much as I like them is the availability of tires in the sizes of the staggered setup.

Hopefully Benz uses the same size for the next GLS so Conti and Pirelli push out some options for us.

For now just gotta get that space saver spare to extend your range if you do have a problem

Look what I found.... even though he said 22" it clearly shows 21 on the tires and appears to be the 21" m-sport wheels.

I have a Phytonic Blue X5 and that above X7 looks very similar. It's hard to tell though because Phytonic Blue looks different in so many situations and the X7 is being lit from 90 degrees straight down. The Tanzanite Blue BMWs I have seen online look darker, but again, it completely depends on lighting angles.

I never really noticed before on the prior X7 pics, but the rear X7 badge seems weirdly out of place. It looks just stuck on randomly, even though that is the correct location.

Sweet thank you!

I think I’m going for the 22”
Will have to buy a dedicated set of wheels and tires for the winter.
What’s your thoughts on the 21”? I feel they look good, but the 22” wheels fit better and make it more aggressive looking.

I second that.

I just saw the X7 in person at the Montreal auto show. I can tell you that it's definitely growing on me. The grilles actually go well with it but I think it'll look even better with bigger wheels.

I'm 6'1 and 215 lbs and I sat in all three rows and the first two are without a doubt super comfortable. However it's the third row seats that surprised me in how they were more spacious than Merc's GLS and easier to access.

I believe It's definitely going to grab a big chunk of the large/3 rows luxury SUV market share.

Yes Captains chair with elbow rests on 2nd row. Third row only seats 2 but wouldn't call them captains chair. Knee room is actually quite alright given my size and the 2nd row can simply slide forward if 3rd row requires additional legroom (merc's gls didn't allow for 2nd row to slide at least on that model at the auto show). Also, in the X7's 3rd row you do sit higher where your knees are not in a compromising position where they're nearly against your chest compared to other brands. If seating comfort is a priority, the X7 should not be overlooked.
