Anybody go this route with there new set. I was thinking about it just so I had the option of rotating them and making them last as long as possible. Is it a problem to go with this option or just the cool factor of having a wider tire on the rear is what keeps everyone doing it.

There is no problem with doing it.

it really just depends on how much you're driving your rig.
i was contemplating it, but since it's just a leisure vehicle, and i'm not putting more than 5k a miles a year on it tire wear wasn't a huge concern.

+ the wider rear wheels just makes it look so much better.

anybody know the correct tire sizes for the staggered set in 22's? I'm doing the black viper replicas.

Thanks
You can go as wide as 275 and I would have to assume you could stay with the stock size of 255.

Our Jeeps come with staggered wheels/tires. As long as they are within 1-3% of each other it is OK you should have no issues.

You wouldnt have any problems but like everyone said, it looks cooler with a wider rear tire. You also get some more rubber on the ground which is good for 0-60 launches and scaring passengers!

I'm gonna beat the 22 dead horse hear haha but when I buy these Vreds I don't want to regret it. I like the wide look in the rear. That being said has anyone attempted to squeeze the 305/35/22 in the rear or is it just to tall? If so does the 265/35/22 still work for the front or would the 295/30/22 work better? My apologies but my intelligence in this matter is lacking. I'm sure you can sympathize with wanting to do it right the first time when spending that kind of cash on tires.

With 22s, most guys are running 265/35s front and 295/30s rear.
I chose 265/35s front and 315/30s rear because they are closer in diameter (and they look cool :)).

305/35s= 30.4" in diam. They are way too tall compared to any size you could run in the front (ie: 265/35= 29.3" = 3.62% difference).
*for comparison, the 265/315 combo is only a 0.48% difference.
*You need to run a 30 series tire in the rear. A 305/30 would be perfect but nobody makes then any more.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. Like you I like the staggered look and am running the 275/315 now. Now I just need to figure out where I'm buying them from. Thanks for the info it was a LOT of help.

I take it your jeep is lowered. My concern was mainly rubbing issues with the 315 in the rear on a 22 wheel.

Thanks
Daniel

No problem. 295/30/22s are virtually identical in diameter to the stock 285/40/20s because of the lower profile sidewall. The 315s are 0.4" taller but height shouldn't be an issue (some guys run way taller 24s and are lowered with no rubbing and another member is running 315/30/22s with no rubbing, but on different wheels), it's more about the width. I haven't installed mine yet because there is snow on the ground here :(
So with the 265/295 combo the front tire is 0.3" taller than the rear.
With the 265/315 combo the front is 0.1" shorter than the rear.
Cheers
