what kind of capacitor/tone combo would give me the widest range of tone?

would it be a .22/250k or a .47/250k?
or something completely different?

the tonal range will be the same.

Changing from one fixed value to another fixed value leaves you with exactly the same amount of control. If you want a wider range of tones you need to find a way of changing the capacitor value. Best way to do that is with a push pull pot. Having a switch for multiple capacitors will let you change what frequencies are effected as well as how much they are effected.

Yeah, pretty much. The cap selects a fixed tonal range while the pot effects how much the cap is able to do.

would using a 500k pot for tone give me any more range? ive heard that the 250k is the best to use for tone

^Larger value tone pots will give you larger range as long as they don't exceed the value of your volume pot.

the both of the tone knobs together?
is there a way to use two 500k tone knobs then?

No, just each one on it's own. So if you have a 500K volume pot then a 500K tone pot will work just fine too but you don't want a 500K tone pot if your volume is only 250K
