honestly... i think it would look silly to have 22's on 35's....

not only that but you are going to pay over 500+ each tire for those 22's

just my opinion... i like a lil more meat on my tires...

Rule of thumb.....pick a size tire and divide by 2...that is size of wheel you should run

35's would be either 16's, 17's, or 18's look great

Well I guess I will be the only rubber band fan... I had 35's on 22s on my old truck and they looked SICK... I would not hesitate at all to get 22's on 35s man... The bigger the rim...the better in my opinion...
