New 22's, but thats not all

I have been sitting on SRT Bilsteins, WK Eibachs, SRT front and rear sway bar, and bwoody sway bar links since there was snow on the ground. I was waiting for the SRT 22's to finally come out in Chrome. Put the whole thing together this past weekend.

Its pretty drastic when you make the switch all at once. I expect the springs to settle in about anotehr inch yet.

The 22's are staggered. I used the chrome center cap of my factory wheels. It gives a real clean look as though it came with the 22's from the dealer. Tires are Vreds. 4 TPMS also installed.

Thanks. Ride is great. It feels much firmer and I have more confidence in turns. Also, maybe its in my head but it feels like the performance is improved with the increase in wheel width in the rear over stock size.

Thanks. I was considering a rubbber set-upm like yours, ut with the lowered springs, I didnt want to risk clearance issues. Also, I want the speedometer and odometer to be right.
