I see a lot of people opting for these on the new RRS. Anyone tried this size on the L322? Would they rub?

Depends on the clearance. The oem 255/55/20 is 31.04 OD and the 275/55/20 is 31.90 OD..you should probably measure clearance at full lock and see how much space there is before it rubs.

I just went from 255/55 to 275/55. Why? The 275/55 was more affordable As a more common size in 19" and 20" SUV tires. Doesn't rub, but looks scary close. I did have a brake pad sensor go bad, but don't know for sure if it was just old and wore or if my new tires caused it to make a cut in the wire. All is good now with a new pad sensor.

Ive got 275/45/20 std 9 spoke on my SC: Cooper make.

No rubbing or issues on any height or full lock situations.

In hindsight the 45 aspect is a tad bumpy on rutted roads.

I want to do 22's like I had on my 03 and 06 but the ride of my 10 on the 255/55/20's is so buttery smooth that I really don't want to lose that. Decisions, decisions.

The roads here are not great and I do a fair amount of unpaved (not really off roading, but not nice). I've got plugs in 3/4 tires already on the stock pirellis from rocks and so I need something better able to take the trails.

I have 22's on mine, and the ride isn't much different. There's a little bit of a difference, but I haven't been disappointed with the ride quality of the 22's on the newer L322's.

Thanks, good to know.

What size tires are you running? I am looking at the same autobiography wheels. I wish they came in silver.

If you decide to sell your 20" let me know, I'd be very interested.

Will 305/40/22 fit with no issues? I have been looking at 285/40/22 but keep hearing mixed things about fitment with those.

From what I have heard this is the biggest you can get and they fit perfectly.

I am searching to see if I can fit a 285/45/20 since they are 100% perfect match in size as the oem 255/50/20. If so, I'd keep my 20's and have the same if not better ride with .03 more of sidewall.

What I've done in the past is call my local discount tire, I'm not sure if every location will do this, but since I buy about 20 sets a year for our business they do it for me, I ask them and they will order 1 tire and do a test fit. May be worth a try?

Just to add to thread, i went from 24's Asanti with 305's with no problem w/o problems, i.e. 1st picture.
2nd picture shows new 24's Road Force with 295's, with no problems. IMG_0759.JPG Road Force 24.jpg
Personally, love the size and love the extra wide tires for great handling. Never a problem up here in Northwest with rain or snow.
Good luck with your choice and look forward to seeing pictures.

24" is too big for me, but your new rims look great!!
