I think Hankook is the only one who makes this size plus a 265/35 for the front.

Just wondering if anyone has gotten this tire to work w/that offset (+15) w/o rubbing.

I ran some Dunlop 285/30/22 before my new setup but I don't think a 285/35/22 will work on the front because of the control arm, not sure about the rear but if you plan on lowering I would think not.

Tire fitment

I tried the 285 rear, 265 front Hankooks on Dub Shoreline 22" x 9.5" +15 offset. The 285's rubbed badly. I had to go 265's all around. Here are some pics to see if Hankooks 265's are big enough for you. They are wide for 265's.

I also ran 285 Dunlop 9000's all around before, had to adjust using spacers. Different spacers on front then the back. Decided I wanted different wheels. Made the change, It was an easy adjustment for me and I like wide tires.

By the way my car is lowered, Eibach 1.5" all around.

Good luck

How does it ride?

Looks great with the 1.5 inch drop, how does it ride?

Ride quality

It rides extreemely well. It is slightly harser, mostly notable around road construction/potholes. I like a firmer ride than stock, so it is now perfect for me.

The lowering helped the handling but did not adversely effect the ride quality. As a severe test I along with some of my employees took my car to lunch. It was lowered at that time, with 22"s, no audio/video equipment. I had 4 guys in my car at the same time, two weighing over 300 pounds (No smart ass remarks I was one of them) one at about 260 the other about 180. The car rode surprisingly well, you could tell that it was loaded but still very functional as a four door car. In other words the 22" wheels and the lowering does not stop me from using the car daily as it was designed.

The pictures are of my car as it is now. I have added approximately 250 pounds of audio video equipment, MDF for the sub box and suede/leather trunk enclosure/amp rack. So the rear is sightly lower than it would be in a stock 300.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

So let me get this straight; you're running 22x9.5" +15mm offset AND spacers?!? Wouldn't the spacers make your tires stick out even more? And why did you need to run spacers? 1/4" spacers?

No spacers

The spacers were with a previous install using different wheels and 285's.

My current install uses 22" x 9.5" +15 offset (Dub Shorelines) and 265's (Hankook) all around, NO SPACERS.
I saw my car with the Hankook 285's on the back, they rubbed on the outside of the tire at the fender lip. If it is possible for this tire to fit it will have to be on a wheel with more offset.

Good hunting.
