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.

No, im going to do 22x9 all the way around with matching tires. I have AWD.

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

I understand. Its not a performance vehicle =) - that is what I have my M6 for.

Any idea on the tires?

I would go for a 285-40-22 or 295-40

I went with 265/40/22 with my Reps. I read that you can go up to 285. Dont know about 305 on a 22x9

Hmm. What if I did 305s on 20x10 all the way around?

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

because I have 4 nice tires of that size from a SRT-10 Ram 1500.
