Hey everyone, found some rims I'm looking to buy and just wondering if this is set up will work or will it rub? (looking to add markmc adapters, already purchased) there black kmc slides 22 x9. 5. Tires are

Yokohama Parada Spec-X all season tire
285/45R22 114V. Also found stock ss trailblazer rims if these won't fit. There both good deals. Just leaning towards 22s if they fit. Thanks.

KMC makes some nice wheels bud...i have 22'' driv royals on my truck and they are 9.5 wide and im running 285/30/22 nittos and i clear the wheel wells by a ton...they should fit no problem...if they rub bump down tire size to a 285/35/22 i know the will fit or even a 285/40/22...hope this helps

OK thanks, just was wondering bc the tires come with the rims and just wanted to know aka (hide from wife how much new tires would cost) lol if they fit great, guess worse case scenario I sell old tires. Thanks again. Btw are you using adapters for those rims?

No not using any adapters on my truck..but your rite if the tires do rub you should be able to sell them on here or on craigslist for a good enough chunk to put towards a new set...or buy a used set at a good price..hope this works out for ya!! you will be very happy with 22's..i am..and KMC slides are a awsome set of rims!!! i love the black ones!:thumbsup:

Yes I did.. Trying them on at tire shop now, hoping they fit with adapters. If not I'm going to sell them on craigslist. Have you tried that tire?

Even with spacers, they are way to large. Hopefully you can work something out. Youll need spacers, and some trimming and cutting.

Let us know how it goes. I never ran that tire size, I always used a 265/40/22. Good luck

that tire works out to about 32 inches which as said before likely will not work without some cutting/lifting and will absolutely need spacers.

Nope, there was a little spot from the plastic in the front that was real close. But my customs guy heated it and pushed it back. Had to do and Escalade last week same thing he said. I drove around a while all sorts of turns, backing up ect.. I got no rubbing. Fingers crossed.

Wait...those are 285/45/22s? And here I was worried that the 285/40/22s i ordered weren't gonna fit. Did you end up using the spacers?

No, no spacers but I did need adapters for rims to fit. So they did push wheels out a bit

Any chance u could take a side shot from the front or back so i can see how far the tires stick out?

The adapters are spacers, they just do double duty and change the lug pattern also.
