What tires to mount on 22" HD Rims

Need help to narrow down what size tire to mount on my new to me 2008 HD 22" rims.

I currently have a 2.5" leveling kit on the front and am running BFG A/T 305/65R18's on my FX4 rims, with no issues at all.

I really like the BFG's and am thinking about 325/50R22's to put on my new rims.

Just wondering if there is any issues or better suggestions from all of you at www.fordtough.ca

Cheers,

Just wondering why your jumping to a 50 series tire ? Have you gone to tirerack and did some research ? they have it so you can see the tire on the truck to know what it looks like

Only reason I'm jumping from a 65 sidewall tire to a 50 sidewall is because I'm going from a 18" rim up to a 22" rim and want to keep the overall diameter between 33" and no more than 35"

I've got 305/45R22 Nitto Terra Grapplers, no rub. Did you buy yet? Having a level, I would go bigger, and 325/50R22 is probably a perfect size, though a 305 might be safer to avoid rub.

There isn't much room between the upper control arm and my tire with the 305s.
