20/22 so you dont have to mess up the front fenders. If you can do 22's all round w/out changing fenders or hood go for it.

I HAVE TO SAY 20/22. THE 22'S WOULD BE BAD ASS BUT I THINK IT WOULD LOOK BETTER TO HAVE THE 20/22 COMBO AND YOU CAN KEEP THE FENDERS LIKE THEY ARE

It depends on how big and obnoxious the bubble is going to be. My buddy is doing an 8" stock floor/standard body drop on his Ram. He had to bubble out the fenders in the front but if doesn't look hideous.

22's will fit in the front, it's been done already. There's a guy in so cal, that is laid hard rocker on 22's in front with plenty of clearance, and no bubble. 1, your breakbooster obviously needs to moved/modified, cause it's in the way. 2, you need to achieve enough camber to get the wheels tucked in past the fenders. 3, and finally, you'll need a decent amount of lift to untuck these wheels, because we all know what a bitch it is to turn when laid out. we don't have the luxary that toyota owners have of being able to turn lock to lock 1/4" off the ground. Personally, I'm running 20's in front because mainly, i enjoy driving low, i'm not building a trailor queen, i'm building a truck that i can cruise and enjoy. And when you run 22's w/ a bd, your gonna need to lock it up pretty high to turn, what's the point in bein that low if you can't drive it that low. just my 2 cents tho...

IMO, 22's all round or 20's all round. No need to be haivn two different kinds of spares in the rear ya know?

The wheels are Diablo Vienna's. As for narrowing the rear, when I get them in friday or saturday, we will put them on and figure it out from there. And no, the truck is not bodydropped.....yet.
