They sure do look like 22's... Maybe it's just the really low profile tires on them and the drop.

Lightbulb 22" OEM fat fives

That is definitely Photoshopped up! look at the lug pattern, it's huge. They forgot to resize the pattern down to scale. I must say they would look good in 22's though...

Agreed....hmmmm, wheels are spinning in my head now....someone needs to get goin on that.....

On another note, I am psyched......after a week of ownership of my 05QC, I traded up to the OEM 20" w/ my dad who didnt like the chrome, I have 265/50s on order as well as McGaughy's 4/6" drop..... I didnt mention the head unit swap, MB Quart speakers and the fiberglassed enclosure w/ the single 12" did I?!
Its been a busy week....and I am working on two other cars at the same time. I need a nap.

Depending on how much modification you want to make you could do a 2"-4" drop and get a little difference in handling or do a 4"-6" and really drop the center of gravity and improve the handling. As for shocks, I would go with a nice set of Bilsteins. They are a little more money but definitely worth it. When it comes to wheels and tires, when you go with a smaller sidewall you'll get less roll improving road feel, but it also gives a harsher ride. The question you really need to ask yourself is how much comfort do you really want to sacrifice? You can do 305/40-22s like on the SRT-10 and have good performance and great comfort. Or you could do 305/30-26s and have it feel like it is literally on rails but ride extremely rough and constantly worry about road rashing your rims. If it were my truck I would do the 4"-6" with 305/35-24s. Hope this helps...
thank you so much for this info this is exactly what i needed but sadly i am out of work right now there for i dont have any money for the truck till i get a new job. but future plans for the truck will be the 4-6 drop on 22s since the roads in arizona suck and i dont want to bend a rim
