Help needed - Factory Reproductions in 22s with RM mid level drop

Hi Guys,

I have had my 2014 jeep srt8 for a year now and haven't done a thing to it yet. Starting to get the mod bug. I really want to get the factory reproduction 22s from black ops with a RM mid level drop.

Before I order I had a few questions for those of you that have the setup.

1. What size rim is best? 22X9 or 22X10
2. What size tire should I go with? It seems like from most of your posts its a 305/35/22 however I do not see any tires available in that size. Any other options?
3. How is the RM Mid level drop? Too low? Comfort okay? Will I have any issues with alignment or rubbing?

I am very new to this world of Jeep modification so any answers you can give me will be much appreciated.

Thanks!

1. I am running 22X10 on all 4
2. I am running VRED 305/35/22 from BlackOpsAuto
3. RM Mid level drop is perfect in my opinion. I have had no issues with rubbing and got an alignment after install.

Re: Help needed - Factory Reproductions in 22s with RM mid level drop

same as above but I had 22x10 with 285 35 22s. BUT...after having the 285 35s for a couple years on 2 SRTs...I found out they aren't load rated for the SRT Jeep. Right now...305 35 22 Pirellis are all that's available. Blackops may have some available...but I heard they are on national backorder again.

Thanks guys! I called blackops and looks like they don't have any tires available in 305/35/22s. They said they are next to impossible to find right now. Guess I am going to have to wait on my order 😢

Any other recommendations for tire sizes? I would hate to go to a 285. Are there any 295 options?

That is what I was afraid of Scottina06! Guess I will have to wait for 305's to become available.
