    Default Need help with tire selection for 22's

    Hey all...

    As you can see, I'm a newbie here. I just bought a 2011 Silverado in December. It's a Black LT 5.3 V8 Extended Cab 4x4. I'm going to pick up a set of Diamo 30 Karat Black 22x9.5 Wheels shortly. My question is concerning what tires I should get. I live in Washington State - where is rains a ton, so summer tires are out. I was planning on not keeping the wheels on year round. I will not be going offroad (I'm a city boy!). I've been looking at 305/40/22's and it looks like Nitto Terra Grapplers are the best that I can buy...though they are a bit pricey. I've had Toyo's on my other vehicles, so maybe Proxes? Or Yokohama Advan's? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Jason

    Nitto's or Toyo's, both great tires. Flip a coin.

    Thanks for your opinion. I went with a set of Nitto NT 420S tires...and ordered the Diamo's. Hopefully both are here within a week or so. I'll be sure to post a pic once I put them on.

    If you're not going offroad the 420s are a better choice, terra grapplers would be unnecessary. I run Cooper Discoverer H/T plus, 305/50/20, in the summer and so far I have no complaints. I would be very interested in hearing how the Nitto 420s performs.
