I just ordered 22" Stormers for my 06 RRS, and am trying to decide between the 285/35/22 or 285/40/22. I have done a lot of research, and want to put on the 40 series for ride quality purposes. However, I haven't seen any pics of RRS with 285/40/22. I realize it's a bit taller than stock, and want to make sure I like the looks of it.

Please post pics of 285/40/22, preferably side view, standard height and access height.

Thanks!! `)

Yes, please, I thought Flash had a similar set up and i'm waiting to see some photos at normal height, forget access mode. Images at normal height please.

Ukraine Range's set up looked great but the I saw it in person (different style wheels) at a dealer and it still looked rubber bandy on the tires.

Thanks :D

285 40 is ALOT of diameter for the RRS. I had some reservations about the 285 35 seeing that I would be going up 1.2" from the O.D. But it looks great and fills the wheel wells perfectly from a proportion standpoint - though I wouldn't go any bigger. I don't notice any degredation in ride quality. With a 22" and 285 35, it basically nets out to losing 1" of sidewall since you're going up in O.D. for your tires. That 1" loss will allow you to go to that 22" and not feel like you're on rubber bands.

I know you asked for 285 40 22 (which I feel will be too much sidewall and not look right) but here's my 22x10 on a 285 35 22 which provides plenty of sidewall for a nice ride:

Are these Harley-Davidson disc breaks? 8-0= They look so tinny behind this giant wheel ;)
They do - and I think I know why. The spokes of my wheels are further away from the rotor and caliper than the stormers due to the offset and design, so the scale is a bit out of whack. This wheel is closer to the camera relative to where the stormer would be. Plus it is a 22 vs a 20. It's sort of like when you catch a decent fish, but hold it away from you towards the camera so it looks bigger.

Getting back to the original post and request.....

Does anyone have any pictures to share of a 285/40/22 on a RRS?

I'm in the market for 22" wheels for my 2012 RRS, and I'm also debating on 285/40/22 vs 285/35/22 tires. I'm buying replica wheels, so I'm a bit concerned over their structural integrity when it comes to bending, cracking, and I think I want the extra sidewall of the 40-series tire, but I'm not sure how it will look.

Pictures PLEEEZE!
