22" or 20"?

I want to get some 20 or 22 inch wheels for my truck this spring. I have a 2wd so I dont know whatll fit well running a tire with a little meat on it still. I dont want an extreme street tire. If anyone has large wheels on their truck could you post some pics. Thanks!

20's would look a lot better since the 2wd's sit a little lower than the 4x4s. If you went with 22's it would look.....well, a little on the ghetto side?

I have an '01 with a 4 inch lift. I was going to put 20's on it but it would limit me on tire sizes so I went with 18's. I also picked 18's so that I wouldn't loose to much tires sidewall.

Since its a 2wd I'd say go with 22's. Our trucks are to big to be sittin on some little 20's IMHO I think the 22" rim will look better

I found this on Cardomain. Your truck probably sits about like this on with 2wd, only this one does have 22's on already. I might add this it's probably one of the sweetest looking trucks i've seen. Just think the rims are too big, looks too ghetto. 20's would tone it down and give some more rubber, little better ride.

it depends what kind of look you want if you want if you want a extreme street look go with the 22" but if you want to save some cash go with the 20" and like someone else said in the 20" there are alot more tire sizes avalible..hear are the ones i'm running 20by10.. hope this helps Eagle Alloy Wheels Series 0824

Thanks guys, Im a little torn, Im thinkin either leveling kit with some 20s and some terra grapplers, or lower the rear to level it out with 20 or 22s for a more extreme street look. Just have a hard time thinking about replacing the tires especially on 22s!
