What size 22 inch tire would I need to keep that or similar or infact slightly bigger sidewall height?
I know I wont have as firm or as precise a ride and that I´ll be off on my speedo indicator but I do want to have a little comfort.
Thanks for the advice and cheers¡¡
Literally dumbfounded here. Makes no sense. Your answer is: save yourself time, money, inaccurate speedometer ratings and gearing, poorer performance, and overall goofy and terrible looks.....and stay with the 20" rims.
As said, the reason for 22" rims is to reduce tire sidewall for a more sporty look and stiffer sidewall for handling. What you want to do is basically the equivalent of someone buying bigger wheels and tires to "lift" up their vehicle the same way they do with a Jeep Wrangler or Pick-up Truck.
