I'm working on the same thing!!! with my '53....sorry to say that I dont have the experiance to do the frame work myself, But I do have a really good friend doing it and he is sure of it tucking 22''s. So far the main thing I am lossing is the bed space. with bags anything is possible.

It depends on your suspension
The rear you need to c notch...22's? you will need very low profile tires
the front I TRIED 20'S would not fit but I have droped spindles
I ended up with 18's up front 20's in the rear

Right now still in the boxing the frame stage. but steping up the rear frame and raising the floor of the bed for that. The front...He said it will need to be custom iner fender. he also told me he has put 20'' on the front of one before with little rubber, but the guy he done it for didn't like it and removed them for 18s/20s. I really want to see one sitting on 22s, hope its mine one day!lol

I've got 18's on the front of my 55, with Volare suspension.. at full lock turn, I have about 1in from the tire to the outer fender lip. no drop spindles..

On the inside I have about 3 in to the inner fender at the back of the tire.

On the rear, I have 20's, with the wide fiberglass fenders, and (unneeded) 3 in wheel tubs. I have a small C notch that allows me an additional 2 in drop, and the rear is air bagged for a total of 5in total movement (ride height to down)

when down, there is 1/2 in from the tire to the fender inside curve. I could have pulled the wheels in some to allow more drop, but then they would look weird (imho) being so far inset during normal driving time. Unless you went to an IFS rear (jag or some such) and modified it to tuck the tops in on drop..
couldn't drive like that..

22's on a 53

That is just bizarre looking to me. Kind of like the old Hot Wheels cars.

What is it with putting 24's and larger on cars nowadays? Is it the anti lowrider movement?

Most of it is driven by the desire to fill up the empty space in the fender wall.

thats why I did the 18/20's on mine.. just didn't go to the extreme..

Sam,

The 18/20 combo on your ride looks good to me. Or even 18's or 20's all around. I can understand filling the wheel well, it's the overfilling that looks weird to me.

That picture from craig's list, the wheels just make the truck look funny to me. They are disproportionate IMHO.

I think the weird look is because the truck is sitting up in the stratosphere.
