STS wheels use a high 30 to mid 40 offset. I believe 44 is the usual value.

Not a chance.

Tirerack should be able to tell you about 22's, Im not sure as I've only looked at 20's

Anyone trying to put 22s on a STS needs to check themself lol, c'mon 20 is perfect leave the 22's for SUV

I find this car "eats up" wheels making 20's look small. I too would like to go with a staggered 22" wheel combo. I was thinking 8.5-9 wide up front and 10.5 in the rear with a set of D3 lowering springs on my '05 STS 4. Going to research that setup to see if it is viable on my car.

Actually quite the opposite. This is with D3springs and 209.0 fronts and 2010.0 rears

To each their own, but personally I think 22's fill the wheel well too much for this body style and starts to look "donk-ish"

true this car looks verry well the stance is perfect and the wheel fitnment is also perfect! but what if you do not want to put lowering springs in your car. this is the first car i have owned that is not lowered and i plan to leave it that way i want a nice ride still and i have never researched becuase i never looked into the d3 but how does it perform with the magnetic ride control?

its funny to see all the kids starting to buy these cars since they are cheap now, and 3x "WILL 22s FIT" threads on the main page.
