I will let other comment on the pro and the cons but this picture shows pretty well the difference between sizes ...

Re: 20" inch and 22" inch rim Pictures

20s give you more rubber, 22s give you less rubber. Depends on what you plan on using your jeep for.

Im gunna put 22s onto mine, since I find 20s are to small

Re: 20" inch and 22" inch rim Pictures



I went from the OEM 17's to these 20's. No insurmountable difference, just felt stiffer/bumpier. 22's were my original choice but like White Chocolate said less rubber meaning bumpier ride and here in Detroit 22's and up don't fare too well with the pot holes... even with 20's the pot holes are killers!

Your choice: looks vs looks & practicality.

Good luck buddy!

Re: 20" inch and 22" inch rim Pictures

I went from the 17" limited wheels to these 3-piece 20" wheels. These are staggered, 265/45 up front and 295/40 in the rear. Platform is MUCh better and it feels very stable @ freeway speeds...I still have some good side-wall on the tires so I have not noticed a lot more bumps, but the ride is stiffer and IMO much better! 22" wheels look GREAT, but in real world application were not for me. Good luck, and you will be happy wither way! FYI I have the WK Bilsteins, so my ride height is 3/8" higher than stock...thinking about lowering springs but I love the ride now

245/40/20

about as much sidewall as you would have on most 22's, not much for a jeep I've come to find out. A lot easier to ding up the rims than when i had 275/45/20's on

Re: 20" inch and 22" inch rim Pictures

I run 22's with 285/35 all round, and I give it Plenty.
Only had one tire pinched when hitting a massive sand washout, at ohhh, 80MPH! LOLOLOL - can't really blame the tire for that
