I know the lug pattern will fit but I heard the offset doesnt and the 07 wheels stick out from the fender, is that true.

Any pics with 07-09 22 on 02-06

I love them. Check out the picture of my truck in the recent Pics thread.

I've had mine on for about 2 years now. Yea the offset is a little more due to the 22 being a wider wheel but not noticeable to me. Looks stock!
Can't remember if I posted pics or not as it's been a few months since I've been on the forum.

In the 2nd picture, the front wheel was turned a bit, i straightened it for the 3rd pic. The offset COULD be about 5-10mm better, but to me I dont mind it. They look great! I see trucks with rims sticking out like 3 inches and it looks ridiculous! These rims look very close to stock.

a DIFFERENCE IN OFFSET IS A GOOD THING BECAUSE ON THE '07+ THE WHEELS SIT TOO FAR UNDER THE TRUCK. So on our years they are almost out to the fender lip. Any time you buy aftermarket wheels, part of what makes them look betterr is they are out to the fender lip, not 3 inches in under the truck.

I'd even go as far as to put a 1 inch spacer on them to get them right out to the fender lip.

Luxurylife33 your lade looks awesome! I am looking for an ext now and I wanna put the oem 22's on it. Whats your mpg now with those on there?

thanks! funny you asked... I went from 13.9 to 13.7 so I did lose a bit! And also when I bought the car it was getting 15mpg so its time for new spark plug/wires, fuel filter, and injector flush! Hopefully I bring it back to 15.

Also i bought it in October and never used the AC and I also started using a trailer 3x a week in June, so that adds to the decline too! But the OEM 22's brought it down .2mpg with all that calculated^

WOW! Thats great. When I put 22s on my Yukon I went from 17 down to 15, on a trip but i was also running a 305/45/22 Falken. Do you get any better on a trip? Thanks for the info.

that computer read out is usually on the high side. I've done a couple trips when I actually calculated MPG with a calculator and it always comes out to less then the read out on the dash.
