22"? Nooooo....that looks so wrong - it looks like it's jacked up and ready for off-roading. Now all you need are spinners and underbody lighting kit

Honestly, the wheel design fits the body very nicely, great choice!

Now the car just needs a slight lowering to look perfect. I agree the wheels look rather large, but I really think the car would look awesome if you swap in some lowering springs.

I have some slightly used Eibach sport springs that work great with the factory shocks and struts if you're interested.

I guess... perhaps lowering it might help but 22" for a wagon is just a little steep.
I think 19" with good tire size will look much better.

I do agree with you. I happen to run 19x10s with 275s all around and it looks perfect with the proper ride height (just a little lower than stock, nothing crazy).

I think its slightly too much but maybe if you added a front lip and rear lip it would look spot on. Just looks like the front and rear are sitting too high for the wheels, adding a little extra lip would do wonders.
