No lift is needed ... basically a stock diameter tire, (about a 33"), that is a bit wider. Just try to get the backspacing to be about 5.5". On an 8" rim that's +25mm of offset. 8.5" rim +18mm, and for a 9" rim +12mm of offset.
So if you lift, a bigger tire might fit. 22s are not the best choice though, performance wise. Do you have a specific application or just a look you're after?
