Just got one set of 22 inch rims for my 05 Escalade. Wondering what is the best tire size for my truck, 285/45/22 or 275/22/45?

I've got 305/40/22 toyo proxes and they ride nice with a wide sporty look

Wow that's pretty wide. How is the wheel turn? Does the tire get cut by suspension?

These are perfect with full turn radius no rubbing.... I have the same thing on my summer wheels which are 23s and they will rub a little Se I can't cut them all the way, I but the 22s ate just right

Im debating on powder coating an old set of 22s black to use as winter wheels...but i feel like black on black looks like you are using donuts despite using really expensive rims

yes she does...i powder coated the 22's that came with my white 03..the chrome was pitted badly, and the rims came with the sale so it was an easy decision..wish i didn't sell them.

Yeah I'm in the same boat they got really pitted and started to flake so it's way cheaper and more durable than rechroming
