    As it depends on the brand tire.... I have found BFG runs small and Nitto and Toyo run a little bigger. A 305/40r22 could be up to 3/4" taller and or 1" wider depending on the brand. Just something else to keep in mind and x2 on what mike said the offset of the wheel will play a big part too.

    the rim width is 9 1/2 and im thinking the code for the back space is J .They are konig rims.I was going to go to my local tire warehouse and ask them if it will work. The guy has them on a 90 thats not lifted and says they only rub turning hard backing up.
