20" vs 22" on 05 1500?

I am considering getting some SRT-10 style wheels for my Daytona for the summer and was wondering about peoples' thoughts on 20" vs 22"? Pros and cons?

This has been one of my favorite mods; got the chrome SRT 10 - 22's and Pirelli 305/45/22 tires on a 2005 Hemi Laramie 2WD QC SWB.
I would not go back to the 20" chrome-clad (PLASTIC)stockers at all.

If you are concerned about 1/4 mile times, then 22s will slow you down a few tenths. More rotating mass, etc ... Other than that, go for it.

22's heavier, tires much more expensive, look nice

20's lighter, tires much less expensive, still look nice

just my opinion, was in the same boat not too long ago, decided i would rather pay $1200 for four new wheels and tires, mounted and balanced and shipped to my door than $1800-2000 for two inches...

besides, if i had gotten 22's i wouldnt have been able to really lower the back of the truck much to level it out like i did without running super skinny sidewall tires, which add even more cost and ride like bricks compared to a 50R20 tire

Not to mention that if you have 3.92 gears with your 20's, changing to 22's would make the effective gear ratio more like 3.55. Not good for drag racing.

That depends on yer tire size.

Stock tires on my truck are 275/55-20: 31.9" overall diamter

Typically people with 22's on our trucks, say HemiFun05's tires, would go with a 305/45-22: 32.8" overall diameter.

Even though you gained 2" in wheel, you only gained less than an inch of overall diameter. The changes aren't that drastic for gear ratio's. The bigger difference would be in the wheel weight itself.

I don't know what the SRT-10 wheels weigh, but I know just about any 20" or 22" wheel out there will weigh less than our factory 20's at 45lbs. a piece I believe is what it is.

The 22" Centerline forged aluminum wheels I've been looking at weigh 10lbs less than our stock 20's. The same Centerline wheel in a 20" design is over 20lbs lighter than our stock 20. That's assuming the stock wheel is 45lbs, but that's what I've heard. Never weighed one myself.

I believe the weight information that you have stated is at least close to accurate if not right-on according to the manufacturers listings.
Oddly my 05' Laramie came shod with 275/60/20 Goodyear HP's so that is the reason I went with the Pirelli 305/45/22's when I bought the SRT 10 - 22 inch wheels to keep the diameter close. I've got the Superchip Flashpaq to fine tune anyway if necessary.
