I'm buying wheels and tires soon, but I'm having a choice to make. 22" wheels with 265/35/22's or 20" wheels with 275/35/20's. I know the 20" will be 1/2 inch smaller, so that's not a real concern. I'm doing a 4/6 drop on a nbs and was wondering about ride quality. I love the look of 22's, but I'm worried about the ride, is it too rough, or is it just fine? Or should I just do the 20's and know the ride will be nice?
Thanks Guys!

I currently ride 265/35/22's on my 4/6 with billets but it's much harsher then when I run my PPV wheels and tires so it's just preference bro. IMO for a comfortable daily ride I would go 20's with a 275/45/20 just my opinion

I have a 4/6 on 22s. I am running a 265/40R22. It rides so smooth and does not rub.
Went on a trip to cali a couple weekends ago, 90mph the whole way and did not rub one time. I drive my truck daily and don't mind the ride at all.
Go 22s :head3:

24's are too big for me. Someday if I make my truck a weekend toy, then I'll do 22's up front and 24's in the back.

4/6 with 265/35 22 front (new), 275/45 22 rear (came with wheels, swapping them for 285/35 22 soon)

rides great. drive 100 miles a day to and from work. only problem im having is a little bounce in the rear, but thats in the suspension, not the wheels.

i actually found the truck to ride worse on 255/70 17s on stock wheels. it would wallow over bumps.

I really want the 22's, but nervous about the ride. I'm going to run Belltech Nitro 2 shocks, will those smooth out the ride?

5/7 drop running 22s in the winter size 265/35/22 front 285/35/22 rears. 24s in the summer 285/30/24s.

And it's my daily while working out here in north Seattle. I like the basic look and ride of the 22s.

I prefer the look of the 24" Intros. ;-)

I have 22" on my 2011 3x5 and love the ride my dad has 20" on his 2014 3x5 and its alittle softer
What size tires are you running with the 22's? Is it a big difference between the two trucks, or is it a small ride difference?

My dads rides alittle smother but that's with 17" rims stock tires
Just lowered mine to a 4x6 today from the 3x4 with the same 285/45 R 22
And love it had 35 and 40 series tires and it compromised the ride to much for me.
Good luck have fun also I have a BAK roll cover and the little weight from that softened the rear alittle more
