F02 with 22x10.5 - ALL THE WAY AROUND?

F02 with 22x10.5 ALL THE WAY AROUND?

Would this cause damage? Would it look better? The F02's have serious wheel well room.

THOUGHTS????

I'm looking at some wheels and considering doing this...they're SWEET wheels!!!

do you have potholes in GA? If so, don't frickin do it! I've popped so many 21s in chicago I switched to 20s then to 19s. not worth the hassle.

Well there are some potholes. But it's not my daily driver. It's not the 22" that bothers me. It's doing the 22x10.5 up front!

I've got an avalanche I beat up everyday.

I was wondering the same thing. Last week when I was putting my oem wheels on for winter, I had them test fit my 22's with a rear on the front. It fit and would turn without hitting, but the suspension was not settled. I also did not have them set it down on the ground and try to drive it. I did notice that the inside of the rim/tire was VERY VERY close to the knuckle (I think that's what is its called) it is likely that it would rub.. It also brought the wheel out almost past flush with the fender. It looked sick, but it was not on the ground (drive up lift with weight on wheels) so I couldn't get the real visual of the overall look. In the spring, I am going to have them put both rears on one side and actually try to drive it. I think to pull it off I will need to put a small spacer on the rear to even it out (so the front doesn't stick out more than the rear) it is possible that fender rolling will be needed maybe front and rear, and the real issue is the front knuckle.. I love the aggressive concave of my rear wheels and really don't like how flat the face of my fronts are. All staggered 22's I have seen for the f0's have the same issue, and obviously 9/9.5 are the biggest that are really supposed to fit on the front. That being said, I realize attempting this would be pushing to the extreme and likely will require fabrication of some sort.. But man would it look good! IMO :-)

Has anyone else tried a square 22' setup on the f0, or what's the widest wheel anyone has used on the front?

For reference, it is my main driver, but I work from home so I don't drive everyday and usually not very far.

Troll food:

I understand that this config would put less rubber up front affecting ride quality and increasing bend possibility.

Attempting this would be for cosmetic reasons only - always subjective

There's a member on another 7 series forum selling a set of 22x10 F 22x12 R wheels from his F0 with 265s on the front. Not sure if that extra 1/2" would make a huge difference. If you did do a 10.5. The front tire would have to be pretty stretched.

Here's a 255/30 on a 10.5

I think my fronts are 22x9. unfortunately my wheels only come in a 22x9 or a 22x10.5. I really like the look of my wheels, so I wasn't necessarily looking to switch to different wheels.

Do you have a link for the set you were mentioning? I did some searching and didn't find them.

thanks for the reply!

I am concern like the rest about the front. I would guess it would rub on turns. probably look better staggered anyways. a square setup can make tires last longer, since you would be able to rotate.
I live in California and potholes are a problem. especially in LA area. but in Ventura County not so bad. I have them because of look not comfort.
