If you are plan to put 22". your ride will be harsher as compared to stock rims due to low profile tires (assuming you choose a tire that has overall diameter same as stock). Lowering the car will make the ride even more harsh, like a wheel barrow, trust me...you do not want that. If you are want to lower just for aesthetic purposes, my suggestion would be to up-size your tires to decrease the gap between the tires and fender.

Thanks for the tip!
I think I will put 285/30R22 and 335/25R22 on it, Continental tires.
Maybe I have to test it with the 22" before I lower it then.

Amazing job. Truck looks perfect. I think a little h&r drop and she will be looking amazing. I love the rim choice and I'm sure your happy you can rotate your tires unlike the staggered rims. Enjoy...

btw love the pictures the nikon is a great machine and very easy to use.

I realy like those wheels to!!

I am buying 22"s on my E70, but can`t decide what to buy..

I have a set of 22" Beyern Multi on the hand, used but cheap. But I don`t realy like the 25 spokes..

The wheels I reeeeealy want is the Beyern Wolff, 3-split. But they cost amazingly $9500 for 4 rims, without tires! Go Norway!!

The last rim I have been looking at, is the Beyern Rapp, in black or silver..

So what do you think?..

$9500?? WOW! I don't think they would cost more than $1000 each in US. I am sure you can find a similar design in other forged multi-piece wheel brands for cheaper price. Here is my design:

Shashank, those AM Forged Primes are amazing look great on the car. If you don't mind me asking how much did they run with rubbers?

The Primes are $925 ea. and the Pirelli 295/30/22 tires are $180 ea, free mounting+balancing+shipping. TPMS are $200 extra if you buy a set of 4 new ones (I used my stock TPMS).
PM me if you need contact info of the dealer.
