Here is the comparison from a tire size calculator.I don`t think you get much width and a lot of height you don`t need IMHO.

http://miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
The size is as follows 325mm wide 55% of width is the sidewall height=178.75mm to convert that to inches divide by 25.4=7.037 inches
since it is on a 22" wheel. you have 7.037 at the top & bottem so 22+14.074=36.075 inches. that is friggen monster truck tire. :D

$560 for a single tire?
$7600 for only *FOUR* wheels and tires?
Ummm...no thanks.

Since my SRT10 QC is not in garage yet, I cant actually do some "close up estimation" !
So I try again: Anybody think that tire (mounted on the standard rim - regarding ET) will fit the wheel well without rubbing ?
Somebody actually measuring the "free space width" on the front and rear wheel wells - is there at least 36" free space ?
Thanks for your help.

Actually I am going for overall hight because I think a wheel/tire combo filling out the WHOLE wheel well is looking so damm god !

Some would proberly just go 24" or maby even 26" with very low tire hight and that would look nice on any cuopé BUT on a truck I think it looks bad.

A truck needs "tire hight" - this tire supply plenty and even in 22" size !

I`m all for filling out the wheel well,but I want to lower the truck 1 inch in front and 3 in back.Problem is there is no lowering kits available except blocks.IMHO blocks are not the way to go and still retain the handeling.

Good luck on the upgrade and get us some pics if you do it.
I am with on that Roktman. I am waiting on a lowering kit myself except I am going to try 2 in down in the back first. You setup would look sweet post some pics when ya get it done :)

Needs to be someone with a quad cab since they are not lowered like the regular cabs.

um no it wont fit without rubbing. on the quad cab MAYBE. thing is you couldnt turn at ALL with the tire in there. The tire would rub on a HALF lock turn even. I dont see why someone would want a 36" tire on a sport truck just to fill in the wheel well

a taller tire will mean slower acceleration, unless you counter that with a gear change. :(

OK - got my four HUGE BFG's yesterday - the tire store personel nearly droped dead when the saw the standard SRT wheel/tire combo but when I pulled out my 4 BFG 325/55-22 of my trailer ... they ran ... :) :) :)

The atached pic is showing 3 combos:
8Jx17" standard rim with 235/45-17 for my 1000rwhp twin turbo Supra
10Jx22 standard rim with 305/40-22 for my wifes SRT10
10Jx22 standard rim with 325/55-22 for MY SRT10

I will post pictures next weekend with the combos mounted on the truck.

Thanks, Klaus
