    I also run 305/40/22's with no rubbing issues (I'm not lowered, wife doesn't want to, don't get me started). I do however caution her repeatedly about avoiding potholes.

    Potholes are the reason why I have 285-45-22 and not 305-40-22.

    There's virtually zero difference in sidewall when comparing 305/40 and 285/45. If my calculations are correct.....it's 6.25 millimeters.

    My 22s, 285-45 - 22 s, slightly rub on my mud guards when turning. If I did not have them they would not rub.

    I've looked those 2 sizes up a 1000 times and I will still stick with my 285's

    I need new tires...Since I need new tires, I'm going to go ahead and move up to 22x9 wheels.

    What tires should I get to keep ride height about the same?
    305/40/22
    285/45/22

    Is one size generally cheaper than the other?

    Also, what should I sell my current wheels/tires for? Photo of my truck below in signature.
