I wont even consider buying it till after winter, though. And it only comes in 22" or greater.  :E:

You been on both? If so, do the 22" seem much rougher on an LTZ than the stock 20"s???

I've only ever had 18's and 20's and on LIFTED trucks(had some 21's on our 2010 Camaro, but that's irrelevant here). I can't tell a difference in 18's and 20's and I doubt I'd feel a difference in 22's. HOWEVER, I'm running em on 35 inch tires.... I bet with a smaller diameter tire(like stock or less) you probably WOULD feel it a bit.... Just less "cushion" there.... I dunno, that's my .02. There's gotta be alot of guys on here with 22's and more of a factory height tire though. Maybe they'll chime in.

Don't blame ya for waiting until after winter!!!

Got the winter shoes cleaned up, and added a little anti-color to help accent my truck when I don't have the nice wheels on.

do you have problems with your tire shine getting all over your cladding? i used to use it but it made a mess  (y)
Same here. I just don't use it anymore. Scrub the tires with bleachwhite to get them clean and be done with it.

It's under "additional options". But I think you need to get to a magic number of posts before you can post pictures.... Not sure what the number is, for me I think it was around 15.

Then when you CAN post a picture in "additional options"(the attachments option just won't be there until you reach that "magic number") you then have to shrink your photos wayyyyyy down to get em to work. They don't make it easy, that's for sure.

Hope that helps! And I have seen some guys with only 1 or 2 posts able to post pictures, so they may have removed that "magic number of posts" thing, not sure..... You'll know when you click on Addional options.....

Thank you sir!  I searched everywhere to find the wheel that I wanted for the truck.  They are just 20's with 33's mounted on them.  Got a set of Bushwacker Fender Flares going on next.  Got some mock-up pics of them over in another forum.
