Your stock tire diameter is about 27". Any taller than that and you would probably rub the strut spring mount.

So it might be difficult to pick the 22" size because they are made for trucks that crave larger diameters.

You would be best to go with 20" wheels.
255 - 35 - 20 is 27." dia
You might be on to something, while I do want to go that big I really don't wanna

A. waist money for 4 or 5 months out the year
C. out wear parts on a newly purchased car
C. buy expensive tires when the old ones wear

I might just take it down to 20'* cause I'd hate to tear up something,

IMO go with 20'* if you wanna go big. It would be more pratical.
