What size tires on 22 inch wheels give the best look/protection combo?

I'm going to go with some irocs and a 9.5 width rim.I cant decide if I should go 265/35/22 or 265/30/22. How are you guys riding your 22s?

265/35/22
Made several long trips on mine over the years. From Columbus, GA to as far west as Killeen, TX and as far north as Detroit, MI. Don't think I'll be doing the same with my '90 Caprice on the 275/25/26 tires.

Some one said that 30 would only look better while the car isnt moving, but as far as hitting the highway theres very little protection

If you're gonna drive the car a lot w/the rims on, I strongly advise you to get the 265/35/22 tires. You can still lower the car a lot if you want as 22s are pretty small for these cars.

I have to figure out whats going on with my tires. Im running 265/35/22 and the passenger side front and both sides in the rear are rubbing.

Im pretty sure the rear is rubbing because of the full set of SS rims and tires in the trunk, but im not sure why the front is rubbing.
