I have a NBS 06 rcsb. 3/5 currently with 265/40/22 with a 22x9.5 with +35 offset. I'm going to be going to a 4/6 with 22x9.5 with +31 offset. I searched other threads but haven't found much. Will a 285/35/22 with 22x9.5 +31 fit with no problems (rubbing) on NBS with a 4/6. Need to buy tires but don't want to deal with rubbing. I know I'd be ok with a 265/35/22, but want just a little more sidewall. Pics would be great also. Thanks in advance everyone.

Yea I know a 40 series will have more sidewall than a 35, but I'm going to 4/6 drop and most people run 265/35s and I would like to run 285/35s just hoping to hear from people running or that have run that size. And pics would be cool too. Everyone loves pics lol

The difference between the 2tires is only a 265 40 22 .5" taller than the 285 35 22. You can't just say because the 265 is a 40 series that it will be taller. All 3 numbers on the tire goo hand in hand with each other to equal the overall height of the tire. I've ran a 285 35 on a 22x10 and couldn't fit the bed on with a 9" drop. Put the same rim on a 265 35 and had clearance.So width matters just as much.with that said I think you'd be fine with either tire and rolled fender lips

My Silverado SS is lowered 6/8 and I ran the 285/35/22 on the 22x10 SS wheels. Had very little rub. Now those wheels and tires are on my RCSB SS clone that is lowered 4/6 and they clear with no problems at all.

Perfect, just what I wanted to hear. I understand all about tire sizes and aspect ratios. I only stated the 265/40 because that's what I'm currently running. My questions were referring to the two sizes I was debating between, the 265/35 or the 285/35 and actaul real life results. Thanks though.

You may have to roll your rear fenders. I had 22x9.5 +35 mm on 265/35/22 on an NBS and my rear tires were pretty close.

Ok good info. Mine are rolled a little now. The wheels I'll be going to are +31 offset so I may need to roll more huh?

So now my question is, which web site does everyone buy there tires from. A local shop quoted me $760 for some toyo proxes st2 385/35/22. Looks like the best I've found.
