Which size tyres for 22” wheels

Been looking at some 10x22 wheels with a +45 offset for my L322.

Would I have any problems with 285/40/22? Most people seem to use 285/35/22 but I’ve worked out that it’ll give a much smaller rolling radius to the standard wheels. Taking into account tyre pressures I’m expecting the 40 profile tyres to be about the same circumference as standard.

That looks excellent, that’s my mind made up, I’ll be going for them. Would you say they have protected your wheels ?

I changed from the 35 to the 40 when I got the new turbines . I haven’t damaged any in a year on potholes ect.. my last 22’s were scrapped as they kept cracking with the 35..

That’s my worry, I don’t want to crack or damage them in any way.

What did you do about TPMS on the new wheels?

Not that it’s entirely relevant, but 275/40/22 are the standard size for the L405

285/40/22 are perfect for two reasons, they give the correct rolling radius for 22 inch wheels on RR and the 40 profile gives more protection from curb and pothole damage for the wheels.
I have them on my D3, Which is a heaver car and my current L322, please see below
The magic number you need to keep in mind is 31.0 inch, so your speedo stays accurate.
Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference
255/60-19 6.0in 15.5in 31.0in 97.5in 650 0.0%
275/40-20 4.3in 14.3in 28.7in 90.0in 704 -7.7%
275/40-22 4.3in 15.3in 30.7in 96.3in 658 -1.2% Tyre looks narrow on RR especially with any wheel
over 9 inch wide
285/35-22 3.9in 14.9in 29.9in 93.8in 676 -3.8% Tyre offer little protection for rim from pot holes etc
285/40-22 4.5in 15.5in 31.0in 97.3in 651 -0.2% Tyre offers better protection for rim due to taller side
wall and is correct diameter, fills wheel arch very well needs 10 inch wide wheel
295/40-22 4.6in 15.6in 31.3in 98.3in 645 0.8% Tyre is slightly larger and is within speedo
tolerances needs 10 inch wide wheel

Hope that helps Whistle

Really ????

I thought the standard diameter for the L322 was 30" - that's what a 255/50/20 would be.......

The standard width of the L405 22's is 9.5

The wheels I seen were 10” wide although they’re the same style as yours but copies. I’ll probably go 285/40/22 for that width.

Ended up going for 285 40 22. I was tempted by a 45 profile but it was going to increase the overall size by more than I was prepared to go with. This size seemed like a good size for rim protection and was good for a 10” wheel.

Just need some wheels to wrap them around now. Probably go for turbines but not sure on colour yet.
