Default 22' wheels on Ram ? what you think

how do they fit? mpg decrease? acceleration less ? do you need a drop?

I got 22" srt rims on my 4 gen and luv em, but they are my winter rims n tires.
I run 26"s in the summer, can't really tell ya mpg as it sits ticking over quite a bit , ... Gets cold up here in Canada...
It looked good on the standard suspension but looks even better with my Ground force 2/4 drop, luv it.....
I'll try n post some photo's when I get the laptop back, can't do it on my iPad .

Ran 22s on mine for the better part of 3 years and MPGs really weren't affected, but granted my genetically-heavier right foot may have had a say in that as well. 22"s look just fine on a stock height, it's all dependent on the size of tire you run. I personally had 265/40R22s, so a low profile tire than needed a drop, but you can easily get 33" tires in a 22" wheel to fill the wheel wells.

im just concerned it might look weird running 22s and not the drop also i am performance oriented so i got that in mind. just dont want worse mpg lol that and I want the acceleration stay the same, but the ram can pull 9k lbds so heavier wheels shouldn't even be noticed right? also pics appreciated !
