I really love the staggered look and thinking about doing mine that way but it kind of concerns me that it may affect the ride quality or cause damage to the gears
with it being an AWD vehicle (FWD most of the time). Did you not have a problem with anything? Whats your tire size?

Hi thank you for looking at it. The ride is great and the handling is amazing and lots of fun we live near the mountains and drive it on windy roads all the time, I've driven it through the mountains in some pretty heavy snow and it drove great no issues at all the 4WD kept it totally in control. The only issue is what they call tunneling. The 22's with low profile tires are kinda noisey. These tires are Lionhart and next time I want to try Michelin's to see if their quieter. The tires are 285\35ZR22 106WXL. I checked with a friend that owns the dealership where I bought it and they assured me there would be no issue with the tires and wheels as far warranty or any damage to the drivetrain.

I'm not familiar with the term tunneling. I'm glad to hear you aren't having problems.
What's the offset on the wheels and is it different from the front than the back?

Lion hart are the cheapest tires you can buy - Chinese tires - about $500 shipped for your spec on ebay.
I am sure you can find a better set for alot more money, but low profile will never be as quite as oem size tires.
On side note OEM brand tires are garbadge.

Looks good! Tell us more about the top wrap job? I've been wanting to have the top wrapped on mine.
