I managed to get them under the car with no ill side effects or having to lift the car! I have a '95 Crown Vic PI (white still has the spotlight on it) that i just recently bought and got a set of 22" OCG Racing Design M729 rims with Nexxen 245/30/22 rubber. The car looks amazing! This is my first post on here and I have to say I am very excited to join! I have a few pics and I will load them when I get home in the morning. Hope you guys like.

I just saw a '93 with 22's that had not been lifted. The brand new front tires had large cut marks from the front fenders.

I didn't think they made rubber bands that thin. But to each his own. I would worry about damaging the wheels with tires that skinny. 30 series makes me think real long and hard about the quality of the state DOT workers...

Let me know what you think;
Where are any meetings close to Knoxvile? Atlanta or Bristol would be about as far as I would want to go either way
As far as everyone worrying about rubbing or road conditions this thing rides just like before. I do watchout for potholes and such but I really enjoy the wheels.

Watch for potholes all you want but the day someone slams on their brakes and you swerve to avoid an accident and causes you to hit a pothole you'll regret it. My 17s (or even 18s) are very safe and predictable in evasive maneuvering. If you go 20+ you will have to worry about those kinds of things. If you are only concerned with looks them power ahead. I'm not fond of big wheels but I don't hate those which means they must look good.
