22's on a 650

Hi,

I would like to ask if anybody has 22" wheels on a 650 and what the opinions are. I see a lot of people think 21's are optimal but have not read anything on 22's. I would love some input.

Thanks Guys

I put 20's on my baby today and I love the look and allows me to drive without thinking. But if I was trying to make a statement I would go with 21's

I did my own research after reading the pro's & con's on the forum and decided to go the 22" route. I am definitely pleased with my decision and especially the ride.

Dear thread,

I do dub thee "Dude's who need Bodykits thread"

Minus Corkilldan who has the ACS kit even with the lowered examples these cars really need bodykit's if they are running 22"s

If not the car sits like it has "swollen ankles" and you look like you own a Landie (Landrover)

Doing 22"'s Do this :



Regmatc your wheels are the first 22"'s I ever saw when I was on a trip to las Vegas! 2 friends had them. a set on a 6 the other set on a 7... Fell in love with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately I constantly buckle my 20" BBS's on UK roads so no 22" for me

If your wheel offset is OK 255 wide tires easily fit on the front. M6 stock front tire is a 255.

If your wheels have too much offset (tire rubs on the shock) you might need to run a small 3mm or 5mm spacer.
