Any issues with the 305/35-22 's. I have been debating ordering the same wheel and tire combo for summer. I will probably go with the gloss or satin black color though.

Besides forgetting to rotate and the rears wear MUCH faster than the fronts after 14k miles, none. With proper rotation on the v-reds, you should see at least 20k miles out of them. He has a bit over 14k with the rears being worn to near the wear markers and the fronts looking practically new... I guess he had too much red light fun

He did mention it grabbing more in standing water, but that goes with the wider tire... no fitment issues or rubbing at stock height, can still go lock to lock.

Love this black beauty - Super classy & slick I'm also running the same size Vreds with perfect fitment.

What are your thoughts on road noise though? Is a bit nasty on mine, but wondering if they have gone hard from being sprayed with stuff coming through customs (as they were secondhand). If everyone else finds the Vreds quite then may be related to my rims.

PS - was nice looking at the snow pix in your 1st post - had 105-110F temps every week for ages down here...

LOVE those wheels~!! Sorry for sounding like a wheezer, but how is the ride compared to the stock tires? One thing I do NOT miss from my WK1 is the harsh ride....

It's a bit stiffer than stock, its unavoidable with the smaller sidewall. The vreds rode nice, but he is on Pirelli's now and it is much smoother and they have a better tread wear rating (also quieter). Same size as the vreds too, pretty decent in snow and wet, maybe not quite as good dry traction, but still decent. I think if he was to do it all over again, he would have gone with the Pirelli's from the start.

Comparing his wk2 on 22's with Pirelli's to my wk1 on stock wheels/tires, I would say his is still smoother. Not as smooth as his on his stockers, but you have to sacrifice a bit for the larger wheel.

Thanks for the info. One more question- wondering if the F/R 20x 9 or 20x 10 will work on the WK2- and keep the smoother ride of the stock Pirelli's?? Probably a question for F/R. I am definitely calling them Monday cuz I really miss those WK1 wheels, and think they look awesome on the Brilliant Black WK2.

I think the 20x10 would work on all 4 corners... I would do that personally, keep the ability to rotate the tires. I would ask FR before you purchase though
