Those are really nice! I've been wanting a set of rims(22's too) forever but really just haven't wanted all the extra care that comes along with them lol.
I like my stockers because
1. Who cares if they're dirty
2. I don't have to look out for potholes that much lol.
I'm gonna get a set one day though once I get my transmission fixed, just wouldn't make sense to buy rims but needing my transmission rebuilt

Ahhh alright that makes since, do the larger rims put strain on the transmission. These actually came on the car when I bought the car and they fill the wheel wells really nicely although if I remember correctly since it's been about 2 years since I've had them on they rub the smallest amount on the inside. Nothing you can really notice unless you cut them all the way to the left or right

Kinda makes me wish I bought bigger rims then my 18s. I did want a decent size sidewall though for all are damn potholes.

18s are the best for these cars IMO. Big enough to give it a modern look, but not so big as to cause any undue stress on the transmission.

I agree with the above. If running put a small spacer in. Those 22's will destroy that rim by the end of summer. I don't recommend anything above 18's. There's a reason my dealership calls the 4T65E the glass transmission.....
