considering 22"s

my Kumho MT's are already getting thin on tread so I'm thinking about going to at least a 20" set up, but would really like to jump to 22" wheels and tires.
I have a 6" lift and 35 x 18"s now. Do you guys think I will have an issue with a 325/50/22 Toyo AT's and 22x11" rim? The difference between the two packages is costly but the 22" set up looks killer.

well......

It looks freekin awesome but that is why I'm asking, will this tire not ride well, not be strong enough, etc? Here is an example, only these are 24" rims.

it would look great but i would lift your truck higher to make it look right.. my friend has a 15" lift on his f150 with 40" tires on 24" wheels and it looks great... i think 6" height is too small for 22's my friend has 20's on 35's with his 6" and thats as big of a wheel you would want to go esp if you off road any.... but a shackle lift on it to get it to 8's or higher

Ok...

see I don't know, according to 4wheel parts a 325/50/22 is a 35.4 inch tire. I have 35"s now. isn't 35 inches 35 inches? 18" rim or 22" rim? To me, with the 6" lift my truck looks like it needs bigger tires and that, I don't want! However, I will say that the trucks I've seen with 22"s have had 8inch lifts. Perhaps I will go with 20"s instead? I just like the ultra low profile look that comes with a 22" tire and everyone and their grandfather has 20" rims and tires down here.
Well, I do appreciate all the input. I still have 10 or 15k to think about it.

Dont get me wrong big wheels with a low pro look great. But seriously a 50 series tire??? Your truck will be riding on rubberbands. Forget having to dodge potholes in a TRUCK just to avoid blowing a sidewall. 6-8" Lift=18-20" wheel. After 8" truck start looking silly. Thats just my opinion.

Short sidewall tires on a 4x4 look retarded IMO especially a lifted one
