Go to Rickson tire shop, even if you do not buy from them they have some good information on tires and wheels.

I have American force 19.5's with Hankook DH01 245x70x19.5 tires, balanced with Dyna Beads. I have roughly 70k on them with plenty of tread left for about another 30k. I wouldn't switch back to 16's for anything. I looked at Rickson but they are pricey, bought everything locally in Denver. One word of advice don't over inflate them, they will turn into a brick in a heart beat. I generally inflate them to 70 - 80 lbs.

From what I've heard/read, do the 19.5s unless you wanna spend even more money.
Not counting tires, the big 22.5s will destroy the front ends. And I don't like the look
