I don't think they'd clear the front fenders. 30 profile on a 19...

22 why. Even 20 is stupid imo. What's the benefit looks. The ride will suck and with 22 s your not putting them on for handling.

I just get wagon wheels myself, with INdia rubber on them, and add some sick spacers, made of carbonized steel. A little grease from the last slaughtered pig works well for the hib. Might try chroming them one day but not sure how the wood will take that.

For anybody else does looking at tires with a profile lower then 35 or 30 make you uneasy?

Tires with profile 20 or 25 genuinely makes me feel as if the car is essentially riding on the rim.

I have 20" stagg On my 08 535i.....tires I'm running 35's on front an 30's in rear ...still like the ride and living in Houston TX the roads are bad and its not terrible at all but can tell the diffrence... but with 22's I'm positive you will have rubbing issues and/or sure you will feel the road a whole lot more on such thin tires.

Unless you're planning on lifting your car or want to change your wheel wells, I'd stick to 19s. Especially if you want it to look good.

To borrow from another thread...
