Need some help with my tire size issue.

So... I just received and installed 22" wheels for my car. They were purchased by my car club prez. (long story as to why). However, I am concerned with the tire size. They are 255/30/22. I'm not the biggest fan of the space between the tire and fender well. Previously I had the same wheels in 24" (mistake). Now with the 22" should I:

A. Replace 255/30/22 with a different size tire ( if so all four or just two and what size)
B. Drop vehicle ( if so how much)
C. Spend no more money... Leave as is and move on.

Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for pic resolution

lower your car and you will be happy...

265/30 is the largest you could go to be sure you have no rubbing... not sure if you could get away with 255/35 or 265/35.. some members do and some dont that depends on your offsets... but while those will help, it will be minimal.


drop the car

Tire size doesn't match the vehicle. Why would anyone take a performance vehicle and install a tire that reduces the capability of the car?

I'm not trying to bash. The wheels are not bad, but 22s make it look like pimp my ride.

There are many people that run 22" wheels... I don't think of "pimp my ride" either. All I was asking is what should I do given the situation I have... Should I A. Lower, B. Change the tire, or c. keep as is.

Thanks,
