Re: 265/40/22 on lowered WK
265/40/22 is a 30.7 inch dia. tire.
265/35/22 ia a 29.4 inch dia. tire.

I have used my winter tires BFG TA KO's 265/65/17 on the stock rims which are the same overall dia (30.7) as the ones your thinking about. I am lowered with RoadMagnets ver. 2 and Bilsteins. They do rub at full lock and also a tiny bit at full compression in the rear.

They still work though, just be careful.

How close were your old tires to rubbing?
Your new ones will have around 5/8 of an inch more sidewall. They may rub at full lock depending on the offset of your rims. They may also rub at full compression in the rear.

my old tires (265/35/22) did not rub at all.... diameter was actually a little bit smaller than my stock fortera's (winter setup)

i think i should be good with the 40's, since its the same diameter as your winter setup and you are alot lower then me.......... thanks for the input
