Re: Help me make a choice

Very nice Scooter.

It's all the offset when it comes to the 305-40-22's.

Your 38mm offset pushes your wheel just a but further out than my 45mm offset so you're further away from the upper control bolt.

With mine, you can see I'm not bad off with the 305-35-22's with the 45mm offset in relation to the upper control bolt....but I might be a bit tight with the 305-40-22's. The only way to know for sure would be with a test fit.

Help me make a choice

I'm surprised you don't rub with 305-40-22's

Nice choice 👍🏻 😎

I woulda gone with 305/35/22's though to be able to use the spare tire if needed and also so you could lower the car on links and not rub.

Re: Help me make a choice

my main reason was not too many options w/ 35 profile much easier to get 40 series. Plus fills the wheelwell just a tad bit more.

Re: Help me make a choice

I'd be in your boat, in PA we have more potholes and shit roads than you can shake a stick at, so I'd most likely go 40's too just for some extra cushion. Any shots from front and back to see how much overhang you have? You said you lowered on links, about 1/2 inch to an inch? Looks fantastic!
