I dont know, it might be really tight, i know a few ppl have 20'* but i dont know of any 22'* you might need to do body mods for that

First off welcome to the Club!
I know 20s fit no problem, 22s might fit without any trouble; lets wait for others to chime in on this one.

But maybe someone will move this to the 2000+ area where this thread will get more attention. Also please be aware that your ride quality will suffer greatly with such a change not to mention trying to slow all that extra rolling mass.

members frown apon that :( you'll be safe running 245-or 255-30 22, I'd honestly go with the 255'* they have a little more meat on them, STAY AWAY FROM POTHOLES!

For those who want to know...
Yes... I had to get my car lifted in order for them to fit
No... I did not use spacers, new Struts and Air Shocks for the back
No... They do not rub, I do U-turns with no problems
Yes... The ride is terrible, more like a truck IMO
Any other questions... Just hit me up
More Pix to come...
