22" wheels?

I know it's like a ghost town on this forum but I thought I'd ask anyways. I'm currently running 20's on my GT and have been shopping around for a set of staggered 22's. Just wondering if it's going to be a big mistake and headache going that big because the tires will have to be 245/30/22 and 285/25/22 to keep the same OD. Ideally, I'd go 21's but they're way too expensive compared to 20's and 22's. Since the GT is based on the F01 platform, I figure 22's will look good. On the other hand, I definitely don't want to look like a pimp riding on giant wheels. Any opinions or first hand experience would be appreciated. Thx.
