SRT 10 Wheels and Rubbing Issues
 
I have been reading alot of talk about the SRT 10 Wheels (22x10) and them fitting for some people but rubbing for others. Just trying to get a straight answer before I pull the trigger. Tire size I am looking at is the 305/45R22, going with the 45 series because I will only be doing the 2 inch rear GF drop. So the question is will they rub or not? If they do rub what size spacers will I need? My truck is a 2012 Express Quad Cab 1500 Hemi 2wd.

mine rub with that size tire. 1/4 spacer fixed it but when i get new tires i think im going to go with 285/45

Mine rub at full lock, but it doesn't bother me and you really shouldn't turn that far anyway, not good on the steering system.

I'm putting RT 22" wheels on my 2012 1500 Sport and am going with 305/45/22 tire size also. I checked manufacturers section widths of all available 305's and found that a lot of 305 tires have a section width of 11.9-12 inches. Yokohama Parada SpecX in 305/45/22 have a section width of 11.5 inches so that might reduce rubbing and also the need for spacers while still keeping over all height the same as factory 20"s. I also agree that turning full lock is unnecessary so I won't be needing spacers.

do you have replicas? mine rub just sitting there with wheels straight on.

Are the Yokohama Prada SpecX a directional tire?

get the nitto tires have them on mine 305/45/22 kmc slide rims and i have 0 rubbing not sure if the rim makes a difference as far as rubbing you can also get a 22x9.5 rim instead if you put spacers on it they will stick out if not mistaken

Yep, they're replicas.

You probably have a little less offset on the Slides.

I wonder if replicas have a different offset than oem

Biggest issue is the difference in tire sizes between brands. One brand's 305/45 may be an inch wider or narrower than another brand's 305/45. Plus tire companies grind tires down slightly on the tread shoulders to help with roadforce issues.
