So i've changed my mind , going with 285/50/22 Toyo Proxes ST 2 tires to mount on my R/T 22" wheels. i want to stay as close in overall diameter to my factory 20"s as possible. The 285 width is the same as the Ram RT Fortera's so i know there will be no rubbing issues or have to deal with spacers. Anyone have a pic of these tires? They are labelled as LT 285/50/22 on the Toyo website. I want a street tire tread not an offroad design. LT must be just load rating?

Ended up with 285/45/22 Alenza's. I didn't want to go to 305's and then have to deal with spacers. Our roads aren't great up here either so if you get a wide tire it tends to wander in the road grooves. The Alenza's are amazing, very quiet. Better than the GY Wranglers that I replaced. I was worried about overall height but they don't look too small. I'll take some pics when it gets nicer. The LT Toyos I was planning on were supposedly very hard sidewall. That's the LT designation vs P metric. Overall I'm very happy.
Got the Bridgestones from Costco. After researching they weren't much more after you factor in the service and warranty they offer. Getting BF Goodrich there for my SRT challenger this spring.

I've got SRT 22's with the 305/45 Paradas on them. I absolutely love these tires. They do rub slightly at full lock, but the only time I'm at full lock is in a parking lot or something going very slow. I've checked them periodically, and there is no damage at all to the tire, only a slight rub mark on the sway bar. I prefer having the tire height over the 285s, and the ride is better as well. Also, I'm adding a GF 2" rear lowering kit on it in the next couple of weeks as I get time. Can't wait!

Default 2012 CC on 22" R/Ts

Heres my 2012 CC on R/Ts. I just put them on a few days ago. The truck hasnt been cleaned and the pic aren't the best but here goes.




By the way Scotty85, can you tell me about those stripes on your hood. I really like them, they look awesome and are well suited on your truck. Where did you get them? Are they painted or stick on? Are they white or silver?

So to keep the overall height i wanted and keep rubbing to a minimum i'm going with the 305 Paradas.Most other 305's were around 12" width. They are only .1" shorter than the stock 20"s so it will keep my speedo correct and my wheel wells full.
Hi Figs45, what made you change your mind about the Paradas? Was 11.5 too wide? Thanks!
