    22's will look cartoonish. Tire sidewalls will be too short & have a negative affect on the ride.
    You shouldn't have to stop just because the pavement does! 2012 Range Rover Evoque Pure Plus Coupe, 2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE traded, 2008 Land Rover LR2 SE traded.

    Big dubs are becoming passe folks. Go for it, put on the 22's and see how long it takes to a bend them. Stock 20's on Dynamic in stealth grey are sweet enough and are EXCELLENT build quality. You'll need to spend $3000-4000++ to get that quality and strength rim. Seriously, if you feel like you need more, buy the better model. Read some wheel and tire retailer literature. The upcoming thing is going to be narrower tires on the narrower rims with higher profile tires , seriously, to give the big wheel look but protect the wheels better. Repair rates on 20+ wheels is through the roof! Many repair shops are refusing to do repairs because of the high recurrence rates. There just isn't any rubber to protect the wheels. Ride quality has suffered and the weight of all the extra braking equipment needed to counter all that rotational mass is coming under the cross hairs. You won't be impressing anyone but the goons that have no clue about all the bad physics surrounding these big wheels. Adding 20-30 ft to braking distances is NEVER a good thing. I've studied the track testing numbers and big wheels do not impress at all.
