I agree, 21'* are pushing it. If your cars no newer than a 98 (provided it'* been taken care of) you'll only be destroying your ball joints barings and all that other good stuff that helps your car move. I'm not even going to mention how much work the transmission has to do, I'd love to see it, just on some one else'* car. U can't loose w/ 22'* ladies not performance

dont' go too thin nine three, a lot of people around here on 20'* and even 22'* are catching flats. I guess it also depends on how good your roads and streets are too. Our roads are F***** here hell, I had a flat on mines and I'm running P 245' 55'' * those are thick tires! but I do drive crazy sometimes

22'* fit on a bonneville i know a local guy wow did it he put the "p zero tire" on it and the still rub in the front and back and i wouldnt do it

but hey never say never you can fit any size rim on any car it just matters how much you wanna spend on modifying the suspension to make them fit

\

ok these are my wheels will a 35 series tire ok a the lowest series tire the make is a 30 seires you do the math

you wont be able to turn and if you ever rode in a car with 20'* let alone 22'* you would know that it rides like a truck and alot more stress is on the suspension compenents such as mainly springs and ball joints so think twice about doing that before you spend the $$$
take it for somebody who has experience with big wheel on a h-body

springs will be flexed
you wont be able to have ne passengers in the rear because the wheel will rub on the wheel well for sure
and a 30 series tire isnt enough meat to make me happy i just like the extra insurance

Don't forget ..........bigger wheels=Less Torque!!!!!!!

If you got a SC,you'll have to change the pulley to restore the performance.
(RIGHT???)
