    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    Is the fuel economy in that fully embarrassing, or just pretty bad. I think the Lexus LX is something over 20L/100km, so I'm assuming the Infiniti is in that ballpark.
    It doesn't require premium, does it? I don't think the 5.6L Titan does.
    When I was in the market for a full size suv in 2014 I looked at the QX vs Sequoia vs Armada and the Armada is the only one that takes regular. With 105L tank the difference adds up pretty quickly. The Armada is a wicked suv and really great on gas. Can get to Edmonton and back on 1 tank of gas including driving around in Edmonton.

    I put Blizzaks on the OEM 20s and bought aftermarket rims for summer.

    I know you already bought 18's but a set of 22" OEM QX80 take offs would look nice on it....

    In summer its about 15/100, winter 17/100 and on the highway 12/100. Towing is around 20/100.
    That seems almost too good to be true for a vehicle of that size. Is that on board trip computer, or have you actually done the math?

    My wife's RDX gets mid 14s/100 in mostly city driving, and 10-11/100 on the highway IIRC. And it's a micro machine compared to that SUV, in every respect.

    I always use stock for winter tires and a nice aftermarket wheel for my summers. Currently on my sierra I'm running the stock 20" for winter and 24" for summer

    Meh, it's a shitty 2009 Murano. Wife doesn't care what it really looks like, and I hardly ever drive it. Plus if there's any damage, the factory rims are still good.

    RTX rims on the Expedition for the winter, wife wants something nice and fun for the Summers...she loves the Fuel Hardline with the blue details, which I'm also drawn to

    On the little truck, it gets stock wheels with studded winters (because rwd race truck) and then something Bronze for the summer (bronze + flame blue = )

    Factory 20" wheels for the winter on my wife's Grand Cherokee and some nicer wheels for the summer making the assumption most people do that the winters will take more of a beating than the summers. Then she curbs the summer wheels... Sometimes I wonder why I try.

    I have been running some OEM rims from my previous Cayenne. I don't love the look of the 18's especially as the summers are 21's, but they are fine. I would like to get 19's sometime in the future, maybe when this rubber runs out.

    I won't talk about fuel economy at the risk of getting tarred and feathered like A790 re. his Saab (hope I am remembering the car right).

    The higher suspension setting to get through some of the snowy mess from a few weeks ago... usually sits more flush with way less wheel gap.

    Mines 14.7 in the winter and as low as 14.1 in the summer. If I use the car started it goes to 16

    I use TE37 with hakka9 on my QX80.
