Anyone out there with 22’s having a problem with the bolt on the upper A-arm rubbing your tire?

My gear head New Sale Manager is working on a solution.

are you trying to solve a problem before it happens or have you actually put 22s on and they are hitting that bolt?
You shouldn't have a problem, we have had 3 different sets on the Magnum and not one set has had an issue.

If you are, what wheel (width and offset) and tire combo are you running?

Yes, I'm having the problem. It's very slight and I'm guessing it's happening at high speeds when the tire is expanding.

I would try the earlier suggestion first, shorter bolt or you can try facing the same bolt the opposite direction, run the bolt up instead of down

whats the offset and width of the wheels you are running, we had 22X10 with 15mm offset on 265/35/22 Kumhos and had no problems whatsoever but it was VERY close

the 9" rim is the reason, its allowing the tire to bow up a little more than if it were stretched across a 9.5" rim

With the same wheel & tire combo (22x9" w/15mm offset and 265/23/22), YES. On the 8.5 or 9" rims, you would be much better off with the 255/30/22 Nitto unless you want to work around the bolt issue.

Anyone with a 22X9.5rim with 265/35/22 will not have a problem, its the smaller 22X9 w/265/35/22 that are going to have a problem. Had a customer come in yesterday with a 300c and he had a 22x9 with 265/35/22 pirelli, he is going to run into the same problem, we intend to shave the bottom 2 threads off of that bolt. IT CANNOT BE TURNED AROUND.

The reason is, just like I said before and my technician agreed with me as well as my tire distributor when I spoke with them about it yesterday when I saw he had got 22X9s. The tire is not having to spread so far as if it were beading to a 22X9.5 and therefore is having more opportunity to expand with high rates of speed. For that reason, a 22x8.5 with the same 265/35/22 would have even more scrubbing problems than the 22x9 because of the tire expansion.

If you do not wish to do any modifications to make them work, if you do a 22x8.5 or 22x9 you need to run the 255/30/22 Nitto or you can run a 22x9.5 or 22x10 with the 265/35/22 pirelli or kumho

Regardless, hitting a pothole with these cars will not cause scrubbing because this bolt moves up and down with the suspension, but running a 255/30/22 will make you much more likely to damage a rim when hitting a pothole.

needasrt4,
Are you familiar with the Sequence SQ2's offset on the 22x9? I am getting ready to order some wheels, but I am not sure whether or not I will have a problem with this 22x9 or do I need to get the 22x10 instead? Is the x10 too big? Do I need to choose a different wheel in a 22x9.5 instead? I am needing some insight pretty quickly. Holla back.

I am wanting to go with the 265/35/22 tire, so that is my main concern about what is the best wheel size.

wanting to do a 265/35/22, you would be better off going with a 22x9.5 or even a 22x10. Not saying that you would have a problem with the 22x9 with the tire cupping, but the possibility is diffinately there. On a 22x9.5 I would go with a 18mm offset, 22x10 about a 15mm offset and you are gonna be within a hair for clearance. Are you planning on lowering the car in any fashoin?

Sq3

Hey guys planning on getting the sq3's in a week or so... Planning on doing a 22x10 in the rears and 22x9 in the front.... What do you guys think? What tires should i run? All four different tires? Would I run a 275/35/22 in the rear and a 265/35/22 in the front? I also plan on dropping the car 1.5 inches... I dont want any problems when I drop it and dont want rubbing at all... Please any help would be appreciated.....

don't think I have ever seen a 275/35/22, but you might could go with a 285/35/22 in the rear, perilli makes both it and a 265/35/22 so they could match
