    i have 22's as well and i have a 22x9 in the front. I have a 255/30/22 on the front and it rubs ever so slightly only in reverse. I would NOT go to a 245/30/22 because you have a weight rating problem. Technically even the 255/30/22 is under spec for max load. My recommendation is to go 255/30/22 in front and 265/30/22 in rear. You could move up to a 285/30/22, but our cars are tuned to handle a certain way and if you create too much of a staggered tire size, the car will likely push under hard cornering. So my recommendation is to stick to a 265 and not go to a bigger size...

    285 rear is actually pretty nice, very very good traction, bit light understeered when driving on the edge though, 265 would be more balanced and a bit more efficient (I think my setup uses 10-20% more than the factory 21/19" sets), and I don't think you can put 265 on a 10.5 rim, that rim needs 285 or 295.
    I have a 20" set Vossen CV4 front 20x9.0 ET35 with 245/40/20, rear 20x10.5 ET42(+5 spacer) with 285/35/20.
    Also realize that with 22" you loose quite some comfort. I know at least one owner that traded in his 22's within 24hrs of use because the ride was too rough.

    I think they've reversed their position on that statement. I asked them a few months ago about this exactly and if I recall they said while they initially fit, after they posted those figments they discovered problems later (rubbing) and now don't recommend going that wide in the front.

    Honestly i wouldn't do 245's. The factory setup has a load rating of 1565 lbs per wheel. The 245/30/22 is 1389 lbs per wheel. That's a difference of 352 lbs in the front of the car and that is a lot! There's plenty of room up front for a 255 especially if you push the offset out by 5mm. BTW the 255/30/22 is 1522 lbs but that's pretty close to the factory.

    I personally do not mess with tires. A blow out in the front can be a life threatening event at freeway speeds and that's why most reputable tire shops won't even install a under "load range" spec tire. So you may wish to shop around for a shop that's even willing to do it (that should tell you something in itself).

    FWIW.

    255/30/22 should fit fine; I have them on my CV4s. There was some minor rubbing when turning in reverse at low speeds but we put some spacers on them and it helped.

    Hey Fonz. I heard from my guy in SD that you'd ordered your CV4s from him! What a small world. Looks like Logan is running the same as you down in SD with 255/295 front/back. I'm staying with 245s on 8.5"/9" on the front and have the 295-25 already on hand for rears so once Niche confirms whether they recommend 10" or 10.5" on the rears I'll get the 295/25's on and be able to once and for all tell... Since we talked I found out it will take 4-6 weeks for these forged Niche Targa customs wheels to get produced. The best about them is I'll be able to a variety of choices in tires at more reasonable price(s) and best of all, the rims wills range from 24/27lb. each which means ill safe a ton of rotational weight vs my stock 21" and maybe this would increase my range a bit! Will keep in abreast pal. S
