Question about a tire size.

Will a 22x10 rim fit a 315/25-22 tire?

Thanks guys.

Bro. That says "recommended". I'm asking if it will or will not fit, not if it's recommended or not. Thanks tho.

Yes, it will physically fit on the wheel. It will bulge quite a bit though, and probably handle a little sketchy in corners. I wouldn't sell a 315 tire for a 10" wheel, personally. 10.5 wheel is already on the narrow side for the 315. Even a 305 wide tire bulges quite a bit on a 10" wheel.

Also, your wheel offset will need to be completely different if you plan on using a 315 tire on the 10" wheel. The tires will stick out past the quarter-panels unless you increase the offset to account for the extra width back there. This is very critical if you decide to lower the car.

Reason I'm asking is cause I originally bought a 22x10.5 rim for the rear and bought pzero Nero 315/25-22 for them. But something happened with those rims, so now I'm getting a rim that's 22x10 and I am wondering if I should send the tire back and get the pzero Nero 305/30-22 instead. But you're saying that will buldge too huh? How bad. I eventually want to drop it 1".

I don't know about 22'' wheels, but 305s fit perfectly on a 10'' rim with the correct offset.

When you look at larger wheels and tires you need to be careful and consider all factors impacting fit. A tool like what Rims-N-Tires has on their web site is quite helpful, see: http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp --> once there put in both the stock wheel/tire sizes and then what wheel/tire combination you want to use.

The tool will show you all around clearance comparison to the stock setup.

It will also show you what size wheels are recommended for a given tire size which would answer your original question.

It shows that for a 315 tire you should use a wheel size ranging from 10 to 12 inches in width - so the 10 inch wheels would be on the small side for this tire.

On the front the perfect offset would be ~ +35, on the back +40 --> based on what I put on my car (I have 20 X 10 with +40 offset front and back - the front is real close to strut tower on mine).

I have 275 tires on front 305 tires on back - if you are going with 305 all around you may need something like +30 on the front.

You can also give Alex at Speed Depot a call (954 - 625 - 2264). He sells a lot of wheels, and I know he sells some 22'' x 10.0 wheel packages (with 305 tires) for the 5th gen Camaros. He would know the best off sets, etc.

I'm planning on buying the Lexani Lx-15. I know they have some offset issues, I believe it's +20 on front and only +25 on back
