Yeah, there is a reasoning. It gives more handling ability, as the
sidewalls (being less of them) flex and roll less.
Of course, 22" (or even 24") is complete styling. For my car to take
them, it would need a 225/25R22 or so to use this wheel. Yes I know
that size is not made. Yes I know I just made that number up, but
only to make a point. And if I had that size rims, it would look
silly, wouldn't it. (87 Regal)

gota have some chrome... it's the latest trend from the brothers.
these SUV's aren't going on the race track so the benefit of less sidewall
for better handling isn't achieved for street posers. the outer tire
diameter needs to maintain stock size to keep with the speedometer acuracy.
pot holes and rough road takes their toll on those aluminum wheels.
remember those wheel extenders about 15 or so years ago?
