Default 20'' to 22''* on a 97

I was wondering would 22'' tires/rims fit on a 97. Ive heard that they would and other people say that wouldnt. If they wont fit how about if i got around the fender and around the back tire cut just a little bit. My friend had and Oldsmobile Cutlass and he had sum of the fender and back tire cut off for that and they fitted just right. I have 20''* spinners now but the look to small. Any suggestions?

if you really want 22'*, i am sure there is a way they can fit... I know 20'* will no problem. I'd love to see it either way.

ok the perch for the strut needs to be modified to fit 22'* also no fender trim is required and they will rub alot at full lock of the wheel one way to get around modifing the perch is to Ride on AIr

You can't lose with 22'*, if the do fit. It would be something to see, although you'll have rubberbands for tires.

O ok i see, GAMEOVER it looks like were on each others head with our Bonnie'* or just killin the other Bonnie'* without tv'* and rims But of course you would have to boss-up and get the spinners playa! Nall im just playin witcha, 700.00 dollars for some struts/shocks, i dont need those. By the way what are you planning to put on there , bigger rims also? Also I have a camera in my trunk keywhole as well. How do i get it to record so i can see the cam inside the house?
