Best Tire for 22" Wheels

I am looking to order a set of 22" Lexani Wraith Wheels for my 2016 Maxima SR and I was just wondering what is the best size tire to go with? I have had different dealers say to use different size tires. I want the most tire without rubbing. Some say 245/35/22 or 245/30/22 and some say 235/30/22. What is everyone else with 22's running? Please provide pics if available. Thanks.

I agree, that is what some of them look like. But I have also seen some pics with more rubber and they looked nice to me (my opinion). I just need to know what tire I can go with without any rubbing without having to do any modifications. Thanks.

this tire will give you the same exact outside diameter for your wheels. Thatís the best you could use so you donít rub like a ****.

The description states:

THIS AUCTION IS FOR 2 BRAND NEW 245/25ZR22 DURUN M626 AN ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE ALL SEASON TIRE DESIGNED FOR THOSE WHO DEMAND A RESPONSIVE TIRE FOR THEIR HIGH PERFORMANCE CARS IT PROVIDES GREAT HANDLING & SUPERB TRACTION ON WET OR DRY SURFACES, WHILE DELIVERING A COMFORTABLE & SUPER QUIET RIDE, DISCOVER THE GREAT FEATURES & BENEFITS THIS TIRE OFFERS, AT A GREAT PRICE GUARANTEED..

There is no way that they will deliver a comfortable ride. Just way too little sidewall. A difference can be felt going from 18" to 19" and I imagine going to a 22" wheel would drastically effect the ride quality.

Just my 2 cents.

Because why not. Different strokes for different folks. Thereís a whole thread on this with peoples ďopinionsĒ on what they think and or feel what having 22ís would be like. Me being an owner of a Ď17 SR with 22ís has given my real world input of what itís like riding with 22ís on rubber bands for tires and the size.

A few things youíll have to factor in: width of the wheels/rims and the offset. These will play a big factor in tire size and if youíll rub or not. My wheels are 22x9 with a +38 offset with 235/30r22 tires. I had rubbing issues and had to do some modifications in order to make it work. Iím now in the process of getting another set of wheels but now they will be 22x8 with a +40 offset using the same tire size. Since my max is already modified I donít have any worries. But this setup should work without having to modify anything.

Man, you are in Wisconsin! Reality check on trying to drive those roads in ghetto shoes! Unless you have access to unlimited wheels and tires..just don't!

Robtroxel!!!! Good to see you again my friend. Hahahaha. Youíre usually somewhere to be found when I comment on a post about the 22Ē wheels. Lol! Fortunately for me I live in a nice suburb with nice roads. Every once in awhile when I head into Milwaukee I have to dodge a few craters but other than that itís pretty much smooth sailing. But like Iíve stated before, to each is own or different strokes for different folks. Really no different than people with extremely low drop with splitters or diffusers. Hell even exhausts. As car guys we are all out here striving to be different from the next or for some to see who can out do who. And that in itself is what makes it great. Some may say, to what extent or but at what cost? And to that we would never know if no one never tried. As they say, gotta pay to play. Some just pay more. Lol!

I just could not help myself. Hope you are well and that the car has not rattled your insides too much. Please tell me your wheels are not painted black too.

All the best.

Lmao! Seriously Robtroxel! Black!?!?! No no no. I see you donít remember. The ones I have now are chrome. The new ones will be rose gold / copperish in color. And all is well friend as I hope the same for you and yours. Car wheels and tires have been great. This past summer/fall I only racked up about 6k on them. And like I stated before, I was honestly surprised in how it rides. Really smooth for rubber bands. But Iím going to guess and contribute that to the nice roads and brand new rubber.

Far cleaner look than I imagined.the mild chrome wheels work well here That shade of red is what motivated me to get my 2016 Maxima. I am still worried about the ride on my ordered 2019 with 19s. Regards!

Well thank you kind sir. I greatly appreciate it. Iím use to 20ís and air ride so this is a bit different. But Iím enjoying it. Canít wait for the new color which I will post when they come in. And I love the face lift on the Ď19 max. Iíll be looking for pix when you take delivery.

You guys contiue to find great looking wheels (not rims). And yes they are not all black! This set up is near the top of my list. Where did you find them and at what price? Ride report?

Thanks. This setup came from Extreme Customs (www.tiresandwheels.com) and were roughly $2250 at time of purchase including TPMS Sensors, mounting and balancing, black lug nuts and shipping and were ready to ride. The guys there were very helpful. So far the ride is excellent and seems to ride as good if not better than the stock wheels and tires. Below is the complete setup info.

20" Lexani CSS-15 BG (20 x 8.5)
+35 Offset

245/35ZR20 Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 K120 Tires
