Just a heads up. Those Toyo's are not going to look like what you would expect a 305 to look like

Well.... I've placed then side by side by side to my 295s and they are wider.
In any event, I got a nice price and needed some so its all good.

I have 295s on the rear and I dont like how they stretch over the wheels.

jesus, you guys must drive with sweaty palms. One pot hole, divot in the road, unseen obstacle, and bam(!)....bent rim. No?

So come on Jonny boy, spill the beans. :D

I actually want and prefer extra rubber protecting the rim! It really helps with unforseen curb rashes.

It depends on the wheel manufacturer. I've had occurences when I thought for sure I bent a rim so I take the wheel off to check and find nothing. I had another car with three piece wheels however that was always giving me problems so I carried a lead hammer in the car :eek:

Actually they've been around for over 6yrs or so that I can remember. Most tire manufacturers change their line after a several years. In the case of Toyo, they have zero 22" in their current lineup. :(
Just got to do some mad searching. I was lucky.

What brand are your current tires? Once mounted, Toyo's have a round sidewall and they usually run slightly narrower versus other brands with same sizes. Besides for that, they are awesome tires.

I ran those 305s a while ago. They were not bad, no rubbing at all. They did wear out quick though.

TXSTYLE 01-27-2013 07:23 AM

Hankook Ventus Evo 1

Yes. Toyo tends to wear a tad quicker but they are super grippy!
I only average @ 7k-8k miles a year which helps. :)
