Alcoa 22.5

I just bought 22.5 Alcoa wheels, adapters and accessories for them, im not sure on tires... everyone runs 255/70R22.5 i was thinking of going 265/75R22.5 would i rub in my fenders if i have a good enough load in the rear? Also what is a good off road tire for them i see good year G622 looks good in either size but i dunno, there is also good year G164 (255/70R22.5) and good year G288 (255/70R22.5) help me out with some input please

I like the look of the goodyear g622 also. Was wondering the ride quality on our super duty trucks.

I ended up going with Bridgestone M726 it's a better ride then I had before.

The Bridgstone 22.5's rode better than your 19.5" tires did? Thats nice to hear! I still want to try those G622. You can get recaps for cheap to put on the rears. Not sure how well they can balance.

No I never ran 19.5, I just went from my stock 17" to the 22.5 with 4.30 gears. Now I can cruise down the freeway at a much lower RPM then 2400 rpm @ 70 mph

What sized tires did you end up using? Did you need a lift to fit them?
