USE the tire calculator dude. Its 2.6" difference in diameter and 5.4 mph difference at 60 mph all for .3" differnce in sidewall....


WHY?

Re: Will A 305/40/22 Tire Work?

if you're planning on running these with SRT reps you will need wheel spacers. the overall diameter isn't what will ruin your plans... its the width, but like I said, that can be taken care of with spacers or wheels with the proper backspacing. 255/75/17's that myself and many other people are running are larger than the 305/40/22. I have also been look at getting that size, I like the cooper zeon LTZ is a nice aggressive tread. and seem well priced.

Re: Will A 305/40/22 Tire Work?

His SRT8 is also lower then mine, MUCH lower. I have no intentions on lowering my suspension due to our severe winters.

I'll just go with the 285/40/22 in the rear. Scotts logic makes complete sense
