Thanks for your comments and pics guys I really appreciate that. How ever I am pretty set on 22's I think I will make it look good. Here are some 6's I found on 22's. Let me know what you think.

I say go for it... I think black 22's lowered on a black 6 would look sick.

Post pics when they are on.

You gotta have a full kit to be able to rock 22's. It looks stupid without.

When u go that big of a tire size, ur car will look likie an SUV since the tires are so huge. NO GOOD. Go for 19's or 20 max. Too muhc GHEToo bling -bling

I'd recommened 20's, but if you really want 22's, you're going to have to drop it in order to ensure that it doesn't look like you actually LIFTED the vehicle.

The reason that maroon 6er looks more proportional is because it's also got some low side skirts on there to make the car appear closer to the ground. I think with 22's, a drop and more importantly, low ground effects are going to be needed if you want it to look right.

Good god that's stupid. Once you step over the fine line of 19" you really start to dabble in the ridiculous.

You either set it off like the maroon 6 or nothing else...otherwise your going to look dumb as hell, and if you post on this site put your flame suit on...over the top is not always the best way to go...going subtle but aggressive yes...The masses in this case are right and it shows! We know our cars...just take a look at the sigs of the guys who have answered you...19's or even 20's will look phenominal on the 6...22's are just out of proportion...

Good luck!
