I finally decided on getting a 2016 MKX Reserve but i did not want the 20" wheels that come standard on it. I found out that you can order the Reserve with 18" wheels, but you don't get the nice looking wheels that are on the Select model. You get the 18" wheels tat are on the Premier model with a downsized tire. After much frustration with Lincoln and my dealer I had to settle for these tires and rims, but I thought the ride quality was important enough to me. Is anyone out there ordering a Select that would want a free upgrade to 20" wheels? I'd be willing to swap, but it has to be fast, because i think my car is going into production soon.

 

Also, has anyone been successful with their dealer in swapping wheels on the Reserve?

The dealer probably wouldn't do it on a stock new vehicle but they might find a new customer who would be willing to swap with you.

Seems to me, any dealer would be happy to swap rims and tires as a courtesy to you and a $2500 add on the other car. Also, can I can ask why you would prefer the 18's?
Wouldn't the selective ride mode give you the comfort you might want?

18s have taller sidewalks and absorb bumps better.

Swapping wheels can cause all sorts of issues with dealer stock since the dealer inventory and window sticker still shows the original ones. That's why it's better to find one that was already sold and do the swap.
