I have a set of Deluxe Design D10s, and they need a new set of tires. They are 22" x 10".

Most of the 22" wheels/tires combos that I have seen for the RRS come with 285/35/22 tires.

Currently I have the OEM 19" wheels with 255/50/19 tires. I like ride I get with the larger side wall, the 50 series.

My concern is two fold; the side wall and the width of the new 22" tires. I want to go with a 40 series side wall which will provide more protection and hopefully a better ride than the 35 series; but will that have any impact on the mechanics of the car? From what I can tell, a 40 series 22" tire will have a larger diameter, than what is currently installed.

Secondly, do I need to go with 285 tires, or will 265 fit on a 10" wheel? In my research, it seems like 265/40/22 tires have a greater availability, and have a lower cost than the 285/35/22 or 285/40/22.

Any suggestions or help is appreciated !!

I have the 285/35/22's on my rrs2006 but have also seen 295/45/22's on the rrs also.
i will be fitting this size next as it gives a little more protection to the rim for my wife. ;)
Also the ride might soften a little.

Cue the Beavis/Butthead laugh.

If only someone had thought to post their finding with these different tire sizes here on the board.... Hmmm.... :)

285/35-22 is the most common choice because it's the best of all worlds. The edict hath been delivered. Go forth.
