    The 255 tires are made for 9" wheels, but i've been told you can put 9.5" wide wheels on a 255 no problem. Do you think i could. Also would it be possible for 8.5" width on a 255?

    not sure I follow, but i think your best bet is to go on the manufacturers website and see what size rim you specific tire is designed for. Each tire is somewhat unique in size

    A 9.5" wheel is made to fit 265. I'm getting 255/35/22. But i just wanna make sure it fits fine. 255 is 10.4 inches wide and a 265 is 10.4 inches wide.

    I think Tacoma stock wheels are 7.5" wide and a 265 Tire on them... So 255 tires with a 9.5" wheel might be kinda awkward.

    You will hate that combo. I did that on an S-10 I had, I really wanted to put 22's all the way around. It looked cool but the ride was horrible and you have to watch out for every bump in the road(I didn't run it for that long). I ran a Nitto 555 with the rim guard just to get the tire to meet the face of the wheel and even then it looked like the tire was stretching to meet the rim width. The minimum you should go with on that size wheel is a 265.

    none...yet
    why 255? isn't that way too narrow for 22"s? i thougth about the same size wheel but in a 285. although this will be a very rough and sensitive ride, not to mention all the punishment to your brakes.
