I ride on TIS 02 22 x 9.5 +18mm offset with pirelli 265/35/22 and have rubbing issues while turning in reverse. Just wondering if anybody else out there has the same issues. And if so what did you do to resolve the problem?

I have the TIS 03 rims and yes I have minor rubbing when reversing when cutting my wheel too far left or too far right. Other then that, I have no rubbing at all. If your getting some minor rubbing when your reversing I honestly don't see a big deal.

Interesting, I guess that a +15 offset is the way to go w/ 9.5" width and 265/35/22

I mean - like who cares - as long as the car looks kool. After all it's not like puttin big heavy wheels and itsy - bitsy profile 22's rubbing on the metal is gonna matter one bit when you're blastin' down the freeway with your ride filled with your closest friends and family. You're gonna turn everyone's head - with that whip.

And so what if the brakes can't handle the weight - or the tire - like - blows out, man - you can handle it - right???

Don't sweat a little rubber rubbin on metal - cause -

you da man!

So does this apply to only the TIS wheels or all 22x9.5 +18mm wheels running 265/35/22 tires? I am just about ready to order my Cartelli 22x9.5's with a +18mm offset. Should I be looking at getting a +15mm offset instead? I do not want the tire rubbing at all, but I also do not want the wheel sticking out past the fender. Any opinions?

Where are you rubbing ? If you turn your wheel all the way to the left or right, check to see if you can see any spots that are clean, or look different than the rest of the inner fender liner. If there is a spot that is cleaner, or looks like it has been rubbed, dismount the front wheels and get ready to do a minor mod.

Once the wheel is taken off, take a heat gun to the clean spot and heat the area for approx 2-3 minutes. After it has had sufficient time to heat up take a rubber mallet, or equivalent and tap the area out. This will cause that are to form away from the wheel and tire and should take care of the rubbing issue when reversing.

**** This is for the inner fender lining only ******


GOOD LUCK :D

FYI, the lower the number (offset) the farther out the wheel will stick out.

Yea I know that, but I have heard some say that +15mm sits flush, and others say +15mm sticks out past the fender and +18mm sits flush. But my main concern is if my +18mm offset wheels will rub when turning (even in reverse). Thats why I want to know if it is just the TIS wheels that are rubbing or ALL 22x9.5's with a +18mm offset running 265/35/22 tires.

The inside of my tire(pirelli 265/35/22) rubs on the inside of the control arm. The dealer I purchased my wheels and tires form sent me 3mm spacers, but I think I am going to shave the control arm a couple mm like aspen dog.

Wow Northern Rider it sure is nice to have you back with all your positive feedback and wonderful sarcasm. It's pretty clear where you sit in regards to 22" rims and lowering of the 300c. If that isn't your thing great, but keep the comments to yourself. Like Mom used to say if you don't have something nice to say don't say it.

it's funny cus i saw NR in another post commenting on getting 22's and he didn't mention once about the lack of braking (even though it's been covered a gazillion times that the brakes are at the very least adequate), eh? hehe... everyone has their own way of expressing their views, eh? what a-boot-it? eh? to each their own is what i always say. people don't get 22's because they want to handle better or to brake faster, eh? they purchase 22's to get noticed and that's it, eh? and like NR's sig says, "FUGIT".
back to original topic of this thread, i'm running 22's with 265/35/22 and i have no rubbing problems.

I think Northern Ryder is a bit jealous and doesn't have the green to purchase
a set of 22's for his ride. It will ride a little bit rougher than stock but not enough
to matter. Mine rides and looks awesome. No rubbing at all I believe my offset
is 15. They DUB Moab's so MHT wheels who makes DUB wheels could tell you what
they are building. I bought mine through a friend that Manages a Discount tire but
he's on vacation or I could call him and find out.
Whatever the case you'll be just fine rollin on 22's ! It's the only way to roll in my book.
