No Problems

I have 265 30 22 on the front maily because if i go to 295s they rub when steering. And 295 30 22 on the back and have no problems. With the lower profile tyres that used to be run the rims took a hammering.:)

Car is not lowered...=) rubbing from a 30 series tire...different brands have different sidewalls (lexani side wall smaller than pirelli..kuhmo is thicker than michelins..etc. not much but enough difference to make it rub and don't rub...I'm going to adjust the camber when I slap on the new tires..rubbing now from a bad camber :thumbup:

I don't think the minimal increase in the tire will help. Our cars are so damn heavy, seems to bend easier than my past cars. I had bettr luck keeping the tires toward to high end of the psi, think 44lbs or somewhere in the vacinity

You could go 285/30/22 in the rear also.
And I have the same problem as you on 295/25/22, every time I hit a pothole my rear rims and or tires always get jack up. Either a bent rim or a split tire on the rear inside and or I get ******* around the inside rim of the tire.

offset will determine if it rubs more than tire size guys. ;)

giving tire numbers does no good without knowing the offset of your wheels.

good advice posted above: make sure u are running around max pressure...anything under will help in damaging ur wheels when u hit potholes

DriftGirl is 100% right on this one. Really comes down to the offset of the wheels. And yes, people have ran 295/30/22 with minimal issues.

I'm running 295/25/22 on Vertini Hennessey rims. Car is lowered using Eibach pro springs. No issues due to offset and 44 psi in the rear. Just avoid potholes and railroad ties.
