:confused: I just purchased 22" x 9.5" +18mm offset TIS 02 for my 300C online from http://buywheelstoday.com/. I bought the wheel and tire package and went with the recommended Pirelli 265/35/22. I was told by this online dealer that this wheel and tire combo is the perfect fit for the 300C(NO RUBBING), and I had read in other threads the same thing;however, after putting my new wheel and tire package on my C I noticed rubbing right away. The inside of the tire rubs on the control arm when turning in reverse. At first it was only rubbing on the left front but after driving around a little it started happening on both sides. I told http://buywheelstoday.com/ and they said that was weird and they have done the same application to hundreds of others and never had a problem. They said that they would send me a 3mm spacer and that should correct the problem, but I'm not sure I want to run with a wheel that requires a spacer. I've heard good/bad things about spacers, plus I want to make sure that the wheel sits flush in the wheel well. What should I do? I really LOVE the wheels and they look SWEEEET!!!!! I also ordered the eibach prokit 1.6" drop. Does anyone else have this same problem with TIS wheels? Please help. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!

grind the arm a bit and repaint w/ flat black. I have never heard of this problrm w/ that setup, but the spacer will work just seems a bit rigged...

damn, unfortunate for you 23NCRUZINAHEMI_C. I wanted to put on exactly the same package, would the +15mm offset be for no rubbing?

I grinded the arm on mine, but many here are afraid the "structural integrity" will be compromised. I disagree. It is the price you pay to play...

i have the tis style 02 22" with the pierelli tires. the only rubbin i get is when i go in reverse and turn the wheel completely, besides that i dont have a problem with the rims and tires. the tires are real close to the control arm, i diddnt do anything left them like that, one side is closer to the control arm then the other. ride is good just alil ruff when u hit bumps and potholes.

Just run the 3mm spacer. It will be fine, and if you are running Hub centric it will reamin that way...anything thicker then you won't be hub centric because it will be floating. So the spacers are fine to use.
