You can put 22 inch rims on it yes. But I believe the lug pattern for your truck is differnt then the 08 trucks. So unless you can change the lug pattern of your truck 08 rims will not work.

That would depend on backspacing and tire size you run.

Man you'd have rubber bands for tires with 22s on it. I'd go with 18" rims and 35" tires, thats a nice combo.

a 315 is the thread width, the tire height is dependent on the aspect ratio, usually 70 or 75 (the sidewall height is either 70 or 75% of the thread width). it also depends on your wheel size. so basically a 315 can be a 31 or a 37 or anything in between. so if your running a 22" wheel w/ an aspect ratio of 75% and a thread width of 315mm, the overall tire size would be 40.6. someone w/ more knowledge please correct me if im wrong?
