question for those with 22' viper wheels

Hello all just was wondering if it is possible to run a 40 sidewall tire profile instead of the 265/35R22 Size that is offered. The other sizing option he gave me was 285/40R22 but told he think thinks it would be too tall. Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Re: question for those with 22' viper wheels

285-40-22 is 31.0 diameter when the 265-35-22 is almost the same as stock diameter...at 29.3 I would stay as close as I could to the stock diameter of 29.5. Here is a calculator to find the best size for your application..

Re: question for those with 22' viper wheels

Im thinking of using a 265/40/r22 combo. Just waiting for a response. Do you think thats still too far from stock?

Yes, im thinking on going with the toyo proxes. It is a odd size though.

Re: question for those with 22' viper wheels

not a bad selection. The Nitto 420s is a good tire too. I have them on my Jeep right now
