Only had 4 different tires to choose from with the size I want to run. I went with Nitto 420s as I thought the tread pattern was cool looking and the other brands where general, yokohama, and pirelli with boring generic tread patterns. I am on week six waiting on these things to be built. I was told I may get them tomorrow but I doubt it, probably next week.
running 285/35/22 in front and 315/35/24 in the rear

22s in front and 24s in rear? Be ready for a lot of people's........opinions. :)

I think it's either going to be epic win or epic fail - probably no middle ground with those; but the pic of the rim looks good.
yeah i know gonna have the guys saying it is killing performance etc.. i have been running 22s for 5 years with no issues. i am more about boulevard pimpin then running numbers. I think it is going to look nuts. the rears are going to be super concave. Well i hope because if not it is going to be one ****ing expensive fail. you could not even buy a whipple with the cost of just 2 rims.

Looks like a good looking rim Tom. Just please put a big TCE front AND rear kit on there. With those massive wheels on stock size little brakes it will look kinda goofy. Has the potential to look pretty damn pimp though. Good luck. Lmk if I can help out somehow.

Looks great man!

I ended up going with a 265/35/22 front and 315/30/22 in the rear.

Both those tires are within a millimeter sidewall height.

Looking forward to seeing yours mounted, mine should be in a couple weeks I hope.

i am running 285/35/22 front and 305/40/22 rear and love it. with my drop the front rubs a little when i hit a big bump or dip but i like the extra meat on the tires and like the bigger rear tire look.
