So here's the deal.

I was intent on ordering a 22 inch 3 piece rim for my 2/4 lowered CrewMax.

However, the manufacturer cannot sort a 22 inch rim for these trucks. It has to be a 24.

So. I had convinced myself that 22 was the perfect size for these vehicles, and really can't say I have even seen one with a 24.

Thoughts? Pictures?

Street truck with street tires, no off-road.

I think 24s fit well on these big trucks...
Although some may disagree lol

If price isn't an issue 24" is the perfect size for our trucks. 26" are a bit big, 22" look good but aren't "just right" like a 24" is.

For a DC, I like 20s or 22s. On a CM, I like 22s and 24s. On a Sequoia, I agree with JMS, 24s are just right.

i have 24's and my only gripe about them so far, is that i didnt get 26's. even the 24 looks border line small on this truck. sorry i dont have any pics of mine yet, i put my summer rims back on tomorow, so pics are coming soon. but the 24's have a great fit, 22's would look puny.

Only problem with 26s is that there just isn't enough tire. For the majority of people, a sidewall that thin just doesn't make sense for a daily driver. Here in New Jersey, after the blizzards and the rain, we have potholes the size of Australia. I can't imagine NYC, Altanta, LA, or Southern California, where the OP is from.

It's not always about how things look, but how they will hold up on a daily basis. The last thing most folks need when they are trying to get to work and home 5x a week is a bent wheel.

Another consideration is braking. My braking was noticeably diminished with 22s. I think going to a 24 or above without upgrading brakes will make the truck extremely unpleasant to drive, not to mention the stock rotors and calipers look very diminiutive behind large wheels.

Sure, and there's nothing wrong with that! But, I just know from experience that when you buy something based on looks, it's sometimes too easy to not consider other factors BEFORE it's too late and you've spent a ton of money :)

As long as the OP knows what he's getting into, then he has my blessing :D

Heres Mine on 24s and 4/5 drop. Looks wise, I think it looks better with 26s but you'll need to check it it can fit. My wife drives it everyday not probs so far.

My 22s are huge up close, but look like 20s from a distance. I would go with 24s if I had to do it again only if I could get a tire at least with as much rubber as my 305/45/22 Nittos. Driving our Florida trip to and from this week was just right with my setup so with 24s, I am unsure of how smooth or not smooth the ride would have been.

I do think that my 22s will look bigger with a 2-4/5 drop........

Here is one my guy at the shop emailed me:

I ordered them yesterday. I'll post pics once I get the truck back, hopefully next weekend.

Thanks for all the input guys.

I had considered the braking issue as well. My impression is that these trucks are over-engineered (throw a supercharger on and not give it a second thought), and the stock brakes will be fine (i.e., the truck is designed to to tow 10,800 lbs, and presumably is also sorted to bring that mass to a standstill).

The look of the stock brake behind the new rim may very well be an issue, however...
