Advice On Tire Sizes For 22"
Alright Guys. Im putting my order in for some staggered SRT8 reps from factory reproductions, so Ill be running a 9" in the front and a 10" in the rear.

However, unlike most of the guys, I will be riding on a stock WK suspension and I have absolutely no plans in lowering it due to weather conditions in the winter.

Now, that being said, I'm going for the thick side wall look.

Ive already decided that a 265/40/22 tire will be the tire upfront, I dont think I can go any bigger.

However, in the rear, most guys have been running 285/35/22, however my plans are to run a different size, for this I have looked into a 285/40/22 or a 305/40/22

Now, before you guys start jumping to conclusions about the 305 tire, just remember that a 315 tire fits on a 20" SRT rep wheel. Now, I'm wondering, will that 305 tire work for me? Or will it cause rubbing issues?

I would like all the advice that can be said.

Do NOT tell me to look at a tire calculator, I have ALREADY done that!

Thanks guys and gals :thumbsup:

K well I did some more research today. I'm going to go with the 285/40/22 tire. Im positive it will fit.

So my tires will be 265/40/22 and 285/40/22

I sold my camper today, so Im ordering my rims tomorrow :D
