The Tire Rack has a View on Vehicle gizmo that will let you see how various wheels will look on your 08. link
Whether the dealer will work with the Tire Rack or has their own supplier is something you'll have to ask your salesperson about I guess, and who know what kind of deal they may be willing to do.
Any other new '08 owners getting new shoes for their new GX-470?

I recently bought a 2008 GX 470 .On standart equipment and installed options it desribes the tires as: 265/65SR17 Mud and snow tires.
But, the tires on my car are Bridgestone 265/65R17 840 Dueler. This is not a snow and mud tire. (it is infact described as a summer tire):
1) I was wondering what kind of tires your 2008 GX came with.
2) We have 2-3 months of snow. Are these tires good enough, or would you recommend changing them?

My 08 came with Dunlop Grandtrek. Go to tirerack.com and look at the reviews for your Bridgestones. I wanted to swap before I bought but I wanted a larger rim and they would not do that swap. I can only say that my Dunlops did fine this winter in MN but I would not say these were excellent snows. I prefer a quieter smoother tire than a really aggressive noisy tire. I live in civilization with good snow removal and have 4 wheel drive. If I get stuck, I am an idiot.

Thanks, looks like I'll need some winter tires also.
