Has anyone installed 20in wheels on the front and 22in wheel on the back, staggered? Are there any issues with this?

Shouldn't be any issues as long as you size the tires properly. If there's too much of a mismatch between front and rear tire diameters the ABS and Stability Control will get upset.

The critical measurement is to match the circumference of the tires to factory specs, correct?

Yes, and your rear tires will be so low profile that you'll think you're riding on the rims!:)

It will ride like a tank! That's a con!

Maybe ride like a desert storm Humvee on solid tires. That's a con too!

It will look, but like what? That's another con!

However, it is your car and you can do anything you want! It's your ride, enjoy it!:canttalk:

Pros and cons....
If you don't care about ride comfort and want the wheels to be the most "eye catching" thing on your car......... Pro

If you don't want to diminish the ride comfort or make your car look ridiculous........ Con

Ideally, yes, as that will ensure the speedometer and odometer are reading correctly. But if you look at the pics drivinfast posted, those certainly look like they're taller than stock (ride height on both cars looks raised slightly). If you choose to go bigger than stock, just make sure front and rear diameters are matched.
