Got an 07 EXT with the 20's, dont like the rims at all. Thinking of switching to the 22's. What size tire are stock with the 22 rims? I want to keep the same diameter as my 20 inch tire.

285/45/22.. some people use other fitments, but that is the stock 22 inch tire size. I think 22's are suburban looking though, and i hope they're not chrome. lol

Yup. 285/45-22 is the stock size. I just put a set of them on my truck and it looks about billion times better than with the stock 18s!

Also, I was worried about the ride quality, but so far I have not notice any difference. At least not so that it would be any worse. Feels actually a bit better...

Here's before and after.

lol Yes, they do fill the wheel wells better and compliment the overall appearance (to me). There not going to help you with your gas mileage or decrease your braking distance, but they show look pretty. Might even corner a little better.. ion know.
