I went to the site but I couldn't really find the wheel options. I would tend to think i would get 20" wheels. 22" seems almost too big. And I imagine that it would be more expensive.

you get those 20s and you're going to cry when it comes time to replace a tire or all 4. on a 20 inch rim you're looking 4-500 a tire, drop to a 19 or 18 and its more like 2-300....

But the Ram 1500 doesn't even come with any 19 or 18 inch tire options. I see what you mean but i'd rather pay the extra and get 20" rims than getting small 17" rims. If they offered 18 or 19 inch wheels then I would consider them.

All I'm saying is that if you plan to keep the truck for some time its going to go through tires. Would you rather be staring at $2-3000 for a new set of shoes or a $1000, keep in mind thats every 2-3 years depending on how much mileage you lay down. Plus the added cost of optioning the 20's

aesthetically I've always preferred smaller rims on my pickups...

Its a pure margin hunt. If you want anything that looks semi decent in a wheel option you need to go to the 20s and at that point RAM will be extracting an extra $1000 per tire change...

Well larger tires will have a rougher ride as well.
This is true.
Choice of which wheel package to go with will also greatly depend on what you will be using it for.
If it's a work truck you're definitely not getting the big 22' dubs.

larger tires or larger rims. more sidewall will actually give you more cushion, more rim low tire will translate more of the road feel into the cab.
