I took the 22's off after 2 years to have them refinished and i must say i'm LOVING the ride quality and performance with the stock 19's on. The only drawback is that they're just too bland looking. Soooo im thinking about 21's. the question i have (Tbal answer please) is there a noticable diffrence between the ride quality of 22's vs 21's? The 20's are just a tad small for me on the 6.

Thanks guys

Hey man, lol thats why I never put my 22s back on. The 21s look great, and definantly ride/feel better than 22s. Even though the 22s are 3pc forged, they are damn heavy compared to the oem 21s...

If I was to do the wheels all over again, I would go with 21s for sure...

tbal...are your 22's really heavier than the oem 21's or they just feel that way? I would think your 3piece wheel s/b a tad lighter, if the not, the same weight as the oem.

Thanks for the advice T

I think im gonna go 21's.

I just wish the size was more popular (more choices)

The 21" tires cost way more than 22's!!!

What tires/size are you running?

i think he's running 255/30/21 and 295/25/21 (aftermarket sizes). or a bit less stretched and more thickness since they're OEM's.
the 21's should be a bit lighter than the 22's but since those are oem 21's im sure it's the ride, making it smoother/lighter than the 22's.
