06 Rx 400H

Recommended Posts

OK so i put some 22s on my Rx and once i already bought them and tried to put them on i realized that they scrape against the rear struts, i put on a spacer so it doesn't touch anymore but when there is weight in the rear it scrapes. does anyone know of a fix without getting rid of my rims???

You mean the tire is hitting the strut? If that's the case you need a lower profile tire. The 400h came with 235/55/18. To go with a 22 in wheel you need a lot lower profile. Check here http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html to see what works. You could go as wide as 255 (someone on here runs 255, but on 18" wheels - the size you would need to stay within the 3% recommended would be 235/35/22 - I don't know if anyone makes a tire that size. In fact, checking that tire calculator, it looks like 235, 245 or 255 would all have to be 35 profile.
