Rears I've seen done - 20s on the front though.
Couldnt tell you the width of the 22s though or the suspension setup.

wont get 22's up front. I had to go to a 25mm profile tyre with my 20's so the tyre wouldn't foul on the top of the strut, and trust me theres a bee's d**k in it as it is. 22's on the back no worries

22's are possible aslong as around 225-235 by 30 series profile tyre's.

REARS only unless you change n customise front struts. -Has beeen done once before.

As sed above it has been done once as there was a show car up for sale once and it had been heavily modified to fit the 22's all round.

22's u sure thats not too big?? the less profile you have the less the tire flexes, you need that flex to help with grip, plus with Australian roads and potholes wont take much to damage em, but they would look nice
