    yer man like VR_Project said, cause 20z are getting more common on vs's an i spoke to a guy about fitting 22z, he said no worries but the tryes will wear alot quicker, but 20z won't be a big as a problem

    20's will fit, thats no problem...having it legal is where some other moddification come into play.
    in order to have no scrubbing you will have to pump and roll the guards...how you setup the suspension will also have to be well thought out, as having such large rims make suspension travel pretty scarce.
    shortened bumpstops, short travel adjustable shocks, and the right choice of springs (most likely not much lower than stock) will be needed.
    you will also have to have get a mod plate to keep authorities happy.

    20' let alone 22' rims, very expensive and rough ride.
