Might depend on the vehicles height (standard, lowered, etc.), as I would think by the time you go to 22" wheels, even without tyres they'll probably be larger than the 15/16" standards with tyres. So it will also throw your speedo out. http://www.ricemods.com might be able to help you further though...

I thinkg 22's would be a bit extreme for just evryday driving - 20's would be fine!! Also it ride wouldnt be too flash would it - and the speedo would be hard to get right!! But the idea does sound good - just not realistic!

You will not fit 20x8.5 rims with 245 rubber on the front.
Not without the rims sticking out the guards...
