Tire size for a 2/4 drop on 22's?
Well I have located a set of 22's that I will be picking up but now I need tires. I have the BT 2/4 drop installed with the OEM wheels and tires and right now I bottom out all the time. I want to go with 285/45/22 or 285/40/22 as the wheels are 9 inches wide.

By bottoming out do you mean your tires are hitting the wheel liners or you are hitting the bump stops? Just curious.

Tires hitting fender wells. I should have clarified that.

Thats odd, i have the same kit and will hit bump stops way before a fender lip. :SHOCKED:

I have the BT 2/4 with stock 20s and it rubs on the fender if I hit a medium size dip in the road but not too bad. Sometimes it does bottom out when I hit a big dip.

Anyone have the 285/40/22 and want to comment?

Look at the thread titled "swapped my tires out a month ago, need advice", it's a few posts down in this section. He's running 285/40's. Pics might help you make up your mind.

gonna buy tires today and still confused on what size to get. I am afraid that the 285/40/22 will look to small but I also do not want to bottom out still with the 284/45/22.

Well dang people! I can't get no more suggestions? Lol
