22" Viper wheels with 305/40/22 on a V6 WK?

Hello all,

Trying to see if anyone has had previous experience in using the 22" Viper replicas with 305/40/22 on stock suspension. Thanks for any incite.

So you are going with 22x10 in all 4 corners? I think the front wheels will be sticking out too much, the back should be fine, since alot of srt guys go with 315 tires.

Re: 22" Viper wheels with 305/40/22 on a V6 WK?

Also keep in mind all the weight added for each 22" wheel and tire combined with AWD with a low output V6. Estimate 75 lbs total extra weight over stock added of rotating mass in the driveline = your jeep will be substantially slower than it already is and get worse mpg; this is also unsprung weight

Re: 22" Viper wheels with 305/40/22 on a V6 WK?

20x10 is too large on the front and you will rub. 305-40 will probably rub all around. why that size?
