What's the lowest profile to run...

On a WK2 you only have two real options for a 22" tire, 305/35-22 or 285/40-22 to keep the same overall diameter close to original. You running the tire size you mention would have your speedometer off by almost 9.5%. The 235/30 would make the gap in the fender look huge even if lowered. Also to run 70 mph your vehicle would be running much higher RPM's to turn those little tires.
