Great to hear, sounds like both tires are an option then. Long story short but the used set of Pirelli's I found became more trouble than what they were worth so I swapped the brand new Pirellis off my Harley F150's wheels onto the X5M's wheels to buy myself time.

Any more updated on the lionhart tires. I had one of my 335/25/22 Pirelli get a flat last night and now I am scrambling for a replacement set of tires.

Yes, I have about 2-3k miles on mine already. No issues to report. They have been working out great for me.

Don't want to jack the thread but I need to ask this regardless... Have a great chance to snag some 22s for dirt cheap. However, they are 22x9 and 22x10.5...what's the widest tire I can run? Can I still do the traditional 295/30 and 335/25 or are those waaaay too wide for these wheels?

TIA

Those will fit fine with no issues. Depends on the brand of tire you are using, but my setup has a very slight stretch on 22x10, 22x11.

Do you have any pics you can share? I was worried about tire bulge even with the small tire wall.

What is the widest we can go on the front? A 305? Or is that too wide?

I think that may be dependent on what width and offset youíre running.

I have BS SVís with 295ís up front and no issues.

with your width and offset, are the 295s close to rubbing, or do you get any rubbing?

There is nothing worse then some rub. I want to do a square setup. I am not a fan of staggered rims, especially with being my DD, and as many miles as I am on pace to run per year.

I’ll have to check the clearance, but I have ZERO rubbing. I also have the h&r 1.2” springs and shorter Dinan bump stops.

that is cool, maybe if I ever get a snow storm (cash money baby!) I will go ahead and pull the trigger on all this.
