Well, I see these cars are now old and cheap enough where the kids are ready to throw walmart 22's on.

This link might help if you want to keep the overall diameter of the wheel and tires the same as stock.

You may also consider upgrading your brakes because the increased wheel/tire weight will reduce the performance of your brakes.

There are always trade offs. Looks vs. Performance vs. Comfort. Enjoy your STS.

Glad to meet you too!!!! Im not a kid, nor am I putting 22s on my car! The reason for the post was to get an idea of what size 22 will fit on this car so i can then take the overall height of that tire and trasfer it over to a 20 inch tire. These cars do not like a 35 series tire, so I am trying to see what the tallest 20 inch is that will work without issue. I really didnt feel that I needed to express all this in the thread, I guess I was wrong...

I agree, 20's do work best but I have a shit ride with them on the car. My 2011 5.0 with 20s rides better than this car with 20s. I am trying to see if a 245x40 R20 will work and not rub. I have talked to 4 tire stores and there is not 1 person who can tell me yes or no... If I can go from a 35 to a 40, it will give me about 1 more inch of sidewall, which in turn with yield a better ride on these michigan roads...

Why diddnt you ask what the largest size 20" tire was? Foolish child. I'm sure your mustang rides better than the STS. You seem like a very intellegent person with statements like that.

Anyhow, I have 20s. Asanti's, on Kumho Ecstas. And I have used 275/40/20 and 255/40/20 tires, it looks like shit and felt no different. I use 275/35/20 which looks great, and rides fine considering you are putting 20" wheels on luxry sedan.

I got 255/35/22. My ride is still very comfortable and I took the car from Florida to Louisiana twice on this wheels (about a 1,600 mile round trip) with no problems and no sacrifice on comfort. My wife is pregnant and never had a complaint of comfort.
