Not wanting to thread jack but I think this is applicable.

 

Would the same thing happen if the OP went with a 20" rim and tire package opposed to the 22"

 

I was thinking of treating my car to a new set of 20" rims for my birthday.

It would depend on the overall diameter of the tires selected. As long as it is VERY close no real difference would be noticed.

 

There would most likely be more weight with the package but as long as it isn't a lot and the diameter is close you won't notice much of a difference at all.

Thanks for the info!  I knew there may be a slight variance in the speedometer. I don't want to experience 0-60 in 20 seconds either!

Worst part is the ride if I hit a pothole the size of a basketball it feels like I ran over a side walk curb at 65 mph head on, never realized how much cushion you get from the tire itself on a 17 or 18 rim.

I had a new set of 20" tires put on in Feb and "brushed" a curb in March. Completely tore a large hole in the sidewall, destroying the tire. An 18 would have scuffed and kept right on going. Dealer rep & I were talking during service. He was telling me about a customer with 21's on his new car. Two months old and he was in replacing his 2nd tire. Pothole on first, screw on second. The screw went in, in tread area, but so little sidewall, penetrated the sidewall at a 45° angle. Tire shot when sidewall punctured.

It's all about the sidewall height and the compound.
