bmw 6 series- 22's are rubbing in the back
 
Can anybody with 22 inch staggered offsets tell me did they have to get any adjustments on there 6 series for the rims not to rub in the back? If so, what was done to get them to stop rubbing?

I have 235 front and 295 back

I have never had rims that large, but maybe rolling in your fenders might help?

what???

Google "rolling fenders". Any decent body shop can do it for $50-$100. They use a device that connects to the hub on one end and has a large rollerskate-like poly wheel on the other which will roll under the lip of the rear wheel well.

Rolling is your only option, other than going for a narrower tire. This is assuming you are hitting the fender, not the shock or spring perch. Look at the rub/wear pattern on the tire to see where it's rubbing.

FYI 235 is way too skinny in the front. The car is going to understeer like crazy if you push it in a corner.

Any benefit to wheels that big? Seems to me anything over 20 on the e63/4 would be detrimental in a lot of ways (weight, cost, poor ride, fear of pot holes, limited quality tire choice, questionable looks.)
For those with wheels that big, what are the benefits and what tires did you get for those wheels?

Reason I'm asking is I'm on the fence between getting a couple of my stock 19 inch wheels refurbished and getting new ones.

Thanks, I appreciate that info... I was thinking about changing my fronts to 245-30-22

I have 22`s (22x9 front, 22x10.5 rear) I rarely have rubbing issues, occasionally when bottoming out on dips at high speeds or the angled entry into a shopping center If i have a passenger I get a slight rub but nothing that would warrant any modifications.

As Yorgi stated, getting your fenders rolled may be an option, I will do mine once I lower it. what size tire are you running? I have 255/30/22 front and 295/25/22 in the rear if that helps.

i switch from 295-25-22 to 285-25-22 in the rear and problem solved or if you wanna go the cheap way out then getting your fenders rolled is the way to go, but make sure you take it to someone experience bacause they can chip your paint or even buckle your quarter panel

Hi, I'm having same problem, did you ever find a solution?

I have 22s 245/30/22 up front and 295/25/22 rears. The vehicle is lowered with Eibach Sport springs and the solve all for the rubbing issue was to roll the rear fenders. Worked like a charm and havent had any issues since.

TheMRSFLAGG 05-06-2013 05:45 AM

Thank you so much!

I just changed my 22's and did a custom offset, at this point they do not rub at all unlike the occasional rub with the last set. I will now drop it an inch with confidence.

Thank you!

MELLOWYELLOW06 05-17-2013 01:25 PM

You could have a specialized machine shop take up to 3mm off the backspacing

If you are going to change tires, try a brand with a rounded edge and not so square...also what are the offset of the rear wheels? Since you cannot roll them you may want to grind them down and flare them...that worked with my Mercedes with no lip to roll even though my rear wheels ran a aggressive offset.

thehitshop 06-25-2013 09:22 PM

I did 22by 9 front with a 18mm offset and a 22by 11 rear with a 33 mm. and ended using a 12mm hubcentricspacer so tbe perfect fit is a 21mm in the rear by 11

Chico 6series 10-13-2013 11:17 PM

Got my fenders rolled and that solved the problem. Thanks for the info ^^^

Great news!

MKLCV 10-14-2013 09:43 PM

22x9.5 245/30/22 up front 22x11 285/25/20 in the rear no rubbing at all. Gonna lower soon. I'm sure rolling fenders will solve.
