: 22" OEM 07-09 vs. 17" OEM 02-06 Adjustments Necessary for Offset and Rubbing Issues?

09-02-09, 12:19 AM
Hi, I've caught the bug and want to upgrade the 17" alloys on my 02 to 22" chromes on 07-09. I have read previous threads regarding offset and rubbing issues but have yet to discover the specific adjustments necessary to overcome these issues? Any specific tire size to run? Any suspension adjustments needed? Supposedly the plastic wheel well trims itself over time with the larger wheels.

Mine rubbed for only a few days.... The tires are alot wider than the stock 17's so it will rub. Theres no adjustments to make, if you bring them out further with spacers, you will then have issues rubbing the fender lip... my rims just clear the lips... I dont see a reason to change anything...

I heard a lot of people go with 285/40/22 s as well, maybe because of the rubbing issue...

I have OEM 22" wheels & tires from a 2008 on my 2006 EXT, and they have never rubbed at all. They are 285/45/22 Bridgestone Dueler.
