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 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

Got em for $1200. Right place at the right time deal.
Unfortunately Toyo has discontinued this tire.

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.

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