I really wouldn't run the 255x30x22 IF you live in an area with any holes in the road... they look GREAT, but the sidewall is small and can cause wheel damage easily.... We have 22's on Three of our Four magnums and run 265x35x22 on all... well except the back ones on the SRT.... they are 295x35x22's, 'cuz those are on 10.5" wheels!

265/35/22 are by far the most common tire size being put on 22" wheels.

I ride on 255.30.22... This size does leave some serious fender gap at stock ride height tho. After I lowered my Magnum, I actually preferred the look of the 30 series over the 35. <---- too much rubber for my taste.

I just installed my Sportline springs. My 265/35/22s are too close for realistic travel. what drop did did you use?

I run 255/30/22 but then again I live in Arizona where the roads are flat and in very good shape. These wheels are very thin but in my opinion look the best. The fender-tire gap is alot but they still look real good. I have springs on the way anyway to close that gap by about 2" or so.

This thread is super old. At the time, I had Drop Zone springs with a 2" drop on 255.30s. I have coil overs and a 265.35.22 now. The 265s ride 100% better than the 255s I had. The Drop Zone equipment is garbage. I found that out after ridin on it for a couple years.

I'm using the Eibach 2" drop springs. Running 265/35/22 out back and putting on 245/30/22s on the front today. I gotta get some clearance.
