I've been looking at summer wheel options for some time and ended up going with the 22x10.5" XO Verona in gray with Nitto NT420S 305/40-22. I looked at a lot of options including 22" OEM knockoffs, but they are usually 9.5" or 10" width and I didn't want to mess with spacers to get the right stance and prefer a wider look.

Went with gray over silver because I like the contrast on a white car and need a way to hide the annoying amount of brake dust. I will eventually go with ceramic pads, but the previous owner had just replaced the pads with OEMs, so made sense to wait it out a bit. I know there's a lot of debate around 285 vs. 305, but I think the 305s look perfect on a 10.5" rim plus most of the popular tires are actually cheaper in 305...go figure. Only a few miles so far, but zero rubbing even with suspension lowered.

Overall I'm really happy with the purchase and Discount Tire matched the best prices I could find online without even asking.

It looks great! Curious about the total price? Also, was there a significant difference in terms of price between 285 vs. 305 for you? I definitely like the wider, staggered set up. That's what I have on my '15 640i xDrive GC BMW (selling now) and it makes it look much meaner & sportier.

Thanks guys. Total was about $3,400 after tax, mounting, balancing, new tire pressure sensors, and tire warranties. The Nittos in 305 width were about $35 cheaper per tire than 285. I was already leaning towards wider as you get more sidewall which helps with both rim protection and ride as there is more sidewall.

I'm actually glad I gave Discount a chance to bid on it all. They said outright they were willing to take a little loss on the rims if it meant getting the deal and they matched the best prices I could find.

Any updates on ride/road noise with the Nittos? Looking at the newer 420V or Toyo STIII in the same size. thanks.

Just swapped back to the stockers last week for winter, but put over 6K miles on the Nittos and still love the setup. Sure the road noise is a bit higher than stock, but not even close to the wind noise from my ski rack setup. Have been super happy with the dry and wet performance of the Nittos, but need a real winter tire for weekly ski trips in the Cascades.
