    Is anyone running a 305/45/22 with a 5/7 drop? I have some rubbing already with a 305/40/22 and didn't want to make it worse, but apparently Nitto's "approved rim width" is 9.5 for the 45 series and 10" for the 40, despite the fact that I've been running 40s on a 9.5 wide wheel FOREVER.

    I know they will be 1 inch taller, but how much worse rubbing can I expect since it pushes the sidewall out another half inch all the way around?

    @NORCAL SS any suggestions here? If you couldn't go with a 305/40/22, what would you run, if not the 305/34/22?
