need summer tire help for 22s

was looking to buy some replica chrome Jeep wheels from Blackops but wanted to know what is out there for tire sizes for 22"ers. The local discount tire shop only had 305/35/22 as an option for me. they said basically if i can find a tire brand, they can get it so here I am to ask what people with 22" wheels are sporting for the summer. I have my factory rims for winter tires so no need for all seasons.

So I ended up with 285/40r22s and the clearance is okay in the back but had to wire the back corner of the wheel well back due to rubbing. The front tires clear at full range of motion but it is close near the front part of wheel well during a turn, say by an inch or so. I suppose it hits on some turns. There's a strip of trim on the inside of the well that looks like I could remove it and it's held on by some plastic clip/nails. Wondering if I could just remove the trim since it sticks into the wheel area too much and just put the clips back.
