Default newbie?'s...srt10 20's or 22's?...

Hey all, I am looking at the matte black srt wheels on ebay, and was wondering if I should go with 20's or 22's? I am gonna go with a 2/4 drop and would like to have no/minimal rubbing of any kind. I was gonna go 295/50 on the 20's or 305/45 on the 22's, while I would prefer the 22's, I will stick with the 20's if fitment is an issue. Also, which drop would be better for clearance, McGaughy's spindle drop or BT's spring drop, or does it even matter? Sorry for the newb question, and thanks in advance...

22's with the McGaughys spring drop. A 305/45 will clear with no issues. If you use their spindle drop it'll widen the front track by 1/2-3/4" on both sides so the wheels will stick out that far.
Don't but those wheels off ebay...buy directly from O.E. Wheels. SRT10 wheels through them are 879 a set.

You can look at my thread in this forum for a 3/5 drop on those wheels with a 305/40 tire to see how it all fits.

Thanks for the reply. I just checked OE's site and they don't have them in matte black(which is what I REALLY want), and their gloss black is out of stock also. Why not wheelman's on ebay, heard anything bad? IIRC, I can get them for $1028 shipped. Let me know if you know something, thanks again!...

(just looked at the gunmetal's on OE, those are nice...)

Audio Ram, those look just like the one's wheelman has on ebay, that's the one's I originally wanted, but after looking at the gunmetal OE's on UNBROKEN's truck I'm undecided!?!(NICE truck, UNBROKEN!) thanks for the link!...

I got my 20" gloss black wheels off ebay from factory reproductions as shown from above and I love them. They look great even after a year with no chips or problems or anything. I have 275/55/20 Nitto TerraGrapplers that I love as well
This is when I first got them

This is how they look now
