I think most people on the board will say the same thing, get the 20's you sacrifice performance too much with 22" Those are some great looking rims though.

+1 to that, but your 22" wheels are better looking than those 20's IMO

+1...I think that will fill in the space/ gap pretty well and get you the performance and looks you want...
Why not go for some 21s

22"s... you sacrifice performance but it looks amazingg... the car is still fast enough... if you have a bad record and alot of speeding tickets get the 22s, youll be afraid to bend those if you hit a bump!... i saw a 650 convertible on 24" asantis and thought it was the most beutifull thing ever.. 24"s might be to big IMO

Here is the best "compromise" solution. Get the 21" Hamann Edition Race. They look very similar to the Neez wheel posted above, but a little better IMO. Black centers, polished or machined lip. Better for performance than 22", lighter, etc... Not quite as good performance-wise as the 20", but not nearly the performance decrease as compared to 22". Food for thought.

I really like the 20" Neez wheels but do you think 20's may look too small on the car?

It all depends on what's important, performance or bling. 22's do look great on the car. 20's look good too and still performs. Tough choice, I went with 20's.

20's will look great with your H&R springs and with the right rubber...most of us have 20's and are pleased...

I also think 21's are a great compromise

something like this?
245 or 255 /35 - 20 inch tires for the front
285 or 275 /30 - 20 inch tires for the rear

It also matters what width the wheels are too. Stock I believe is 8.5" in the front and 10" for the rears. A 1/2 inch more on each side is ideal. Your specs on tires for the front is fine but you should go wider for the rears.
