    Test fit some new wheels. 22x9 +44 on a Nexen 265/30ZR22. Straight sidewall, clears turning to the left and rubs slightly at full lock to the right. Clears everywhere else. It also will fit inside a stock wheel well cover with NO TRIMMING! Stock suspension btw, if I readjusted my bars slightly I could remove all the rub and probably step up to a 24 tbh. But I don't want wheels that big, 22's got it sitting right.

    I dont have pics but I test fit them on the back too.

    In case any didn't know the lug pattern is 5x4.5. I feel like that's common knowledge but just in case someone didn't know and needs to know....

    Rims were actually 22x9.5 excuse me. 6.5 inches back spacing is the absolute limit without touching the torsion bars, on a 28.3" tire

    Good info. Don't see many 22's fitted. Nice to know they will fit with minor adjustments.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid!
    Why dump all that money in any car and more important issues go untouched.

    With the right body style, larger wheels can exhibit an interesting look. Nice to see a different application once in a while.

    There's 22's and there's 22's if you know what I mean. Not a big fan of these, personally, but I'd be interested to see your final set.
    FWIW, the decrease in sidewall will give you a harsher ride.

    Taste is subjective; while I strongly favor the OEM look, some 22" rims look better on others. (There's a '78 B8 blue Newport 2-dr around here ridin' on them and in beautiful condition; I'd rather see a "C" still running strong on 22s than rotting away on...anything.)

    On the other hand, I saw a mid-60's Olds Cutlass on those huge wheels that require raising the body...and more room to turn than a school bus. Now that I don't understand.

    might want to try them on the back also. there is less room in the wheel well in the back than the front.
