Here is the look of the exact setup on a Range Rover . Same wheels and tires will be 285/40/22. Love the beefy look. I don’t think the springs will set that low tho.

We are thinking about wrapping it in this color also.

That RR is a lot smaller though. I don’t know if a 285 will give you the look you’re after. It’s gonna look pretty narrow.

I agree so I changed the order to 10.5 today on the wheels . We are gonna try the 285 first as well as 305. Problem with 305 is it almost an inch larger in diameter to stock unless I do 35 series and I don’t want 35 series. Good thing my guy at discount is cool AF and we can try different setups.

What offset on the 10.5? I’ll be running the 305/35/22 to keep the height as close as I can to stock. 315/35 is exactly the same but I need to see the fit on these first.

I’m waiting on that info as we speak. Most likely around +30. I might wait on the tires until you complete yours . You can be the guinea pig.

These are most likely my options. I’m putting the springs on first before the wheels.

Same here with the springs. My wheels are 22x10.5 +30
With the 305/35’s they will be almost dead flush with the fenders...which is what I’m going for. I have at least 3 more weeks to wait for wheels. Hopefully the springs will be here just before but I can slap those in in a few hours.

Since I changed the size I pushed mine out more

Just a red vinyl strip underneath the clear bra.

If there is any HP it is not noticeable. No sound difference or I can’t hear it over the stupid exhaust stereo BS. Maybe slightly better Gas Mileage. But I’m always smashing the gas

Last mod until my exhaust and catch can comes in. That bottom bolt is a pain in the ass. Definitely take the air box out.
