The 2022 Chevy Equinox represents the fifth model year of the third-generation crossover. For the 2022 model year, the ‘nox receives a mid-cycle enhancement (MCE) – otherwise known as an update or refresh – complete with new front and rear ends, along with a sporty-looking RS trim level plus equipment changes and updates.
Also joining the change log is the addition of four new exterior colors, the addition of Wireless Apple CarPlay and Wireless Android Auto, front and rear Park Assist, plus a revised wheel lineup. Focusing specifically on the wheels, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide to 2022 Chevy Equinox wheel options.
There are a total of five 2022 Chevy Equinox wheel options, down from six options offered on the 2021 Equinox. All of the wheels are made of aluminum and range from 17- to 19-inches in diameter, while varying in design and finish.
Of the five available 2022 Chevy Equinox wheel choices, three are standard, one is a factory upgrade, and one is a LPO-level (dealer-installed) option. It is worth noting that some wheels are standard on certain trims and optional for others. For instance, the 18-inch aluminum wheels (RV8) are standard only on the Premier (1LZ) model, but optional on the LT (1LT) model.
All 2022 Chevy Equinox wheel choices offered by Chevrolet from the factory are shown in the gallery above, and wheel availability is fleshed out in the table below. The table lists the five sets of 2022 Equinox wheels, along with the corresponding RPO Codes, diameters, materials, finishes, and availability by trim level.
|RPO Code||Material||Diameter (inches)||Width (inches)||Finish||Trim Level Availability|

The GM Authority Take
While GM doesn’t offer a vast amount of wheel options for the 2022 Equinox, the options do represent a healthy lineup. Additionally, the fact that four of the five wheel offerings are new further aids in distinguishing the updated 2022 model from prior model years.
The microchip shortage shows no signs of letting up. LT is expected to be the most popular trim, followed by the new-for-2022 RS.
