you can get a set of 22's to fit but it will require some cutting and shaving. I would stick with 245/30/22 and 285/25/22 for the tires. Good luck.

they are actually alot more common than they used to be the biggest problem is limited tires sizes and companies that make them! Pricing is comprable

I am running a 235-30-22 front and a 285-25-22 rear. I had minimal rubbing in front that was fixed with a razor blade in about 10mins.

how can you argue that that doesnt look right? 22;s look great on our cars.all you need now is a lipkit. maybe a small(very small) drop.what are the offsets? if you dont mind me asking. seems you went the right way. only 10 mins to get rid of rubbing on the front.

how long is this thread going to go on? ok there are those who like the 22 on rubber band and those who don't. For some it look good and other they look like hot wheels on over sized rims. I say if you it your car and you like it then so be it we all have differnet taste on here so we should bad mouth someone else mod choices. Just voicing my opinion.

I have had my car look just like this before in my opinion it definitely sits too high you ll never get those Asantis to sit flush with the fender, if you lower the car with them your 10 mins of fender mods will turn into fender rolling/shaving(also done with my 20 set up). Even when lowered because of the wheel size the car will still sit high and there aren t many tire options available in 22inch. I can honestly say that I love the way my 20s look with my suspension set up, the car looks much sportier and classy. I also am not putting any added stress on the rear end, and transmission anymore since my wheels are right within factory specs. It took me over a year of looking at my car and not being happy with the fitment to scratch the whole 22 idea and everytime I look at my car now I feel satisfied. Just my .03 lol!!

it all ends up the same. everyone has their own taste. i had an 06" gs dropped with staggered 20's and i just kept looking at the car sratching my head. i didnt see why they looked so small on a big car. it looks like adding 15 inch rims to a civic. too small. maybe like i said before. some 21 inch rims or roll the ***** outta my fenders and get some 22's. this car seems like all it really needs is a one inch drop. may have to do a bit of rolling but 1 inch shouldnt be that bad. maybe even 3/4 inch. add a lip kit and the car looks balanced. lonce again, everyone has their own taste. here in s.fl . most go with big rims. even on that we have different taste, i dont like vossens too much, and i think this car looks classier on 22's than on 20"s. if done right. im not talking about jacking the car up and sticking 28" rims on it.lol btw im on stock 18's now. only 4 inch differance.

how can you argue that it does look good? its a matter of opinion. your more than welcome to throw 22s on there. i think they fit well with a few minor tweeks but in the end its very hard to lower your car enough to make it look good imo.

here was my car with 22s

here it is with 20s

i just prefer the lower look over the bigger wheel

i have to admit i also love the lowered look. on any of my past cars the first mod was always dropping it. and like all other cars he gs looks amazing when its dropped. and it doesnt look bad on 20's. the thing is the 20's look good on the front but seem to dissappear in the rear.idk maybe a 20 front 21 on the rears. btw your gs looks nice either way but it looked good on the 22's too.sitting perfectly. like i said maybe a lipkit would make it lok a little more slammed.
