    thanks chris, what is your offset? the wheels im looking to get are 22 x 10.5 with +28offset and 285/35/22. i know another explorer that has the same wheel setup. i dont know if they did anything special though to make those fit on his explorer. the vendors are all saying that it won't fit or is not listed as compatible with my truck but i seen one person on here with it and another site that has it on an explorer. i have no drop and dont plan to do it anyway, i showed them pics of it but they say that the pics dont have any of the wheels fully turned and could be hitting the suspension or inner fender. you have any problems with that?

    Just realized that I had posted the wrong link.

    Here is the link back a few pages in this thread.

    I am running 22x10.5 KMC District with 285 35 22 and I have no rubbing. Been about 5000 miles now and everything is good.

    Those rims look great, those are the ones I was thinking of getting. It looks great on your ride. How much did you end up spending on rims and tires? Also what do you mean by "poke"? Have tried driving it with a couple of passengers? I do road trips here in there and usually it's me plus 3 others and dogs in the back.

    'Poke': tires/wheels sticking out past the fender lip...not cool, but I do like the wheels.

    It seems to me that having tires stick out beyond the fender wells would be a very illogical move. Not only will it result in more debris being thrown up in the air that fellow motorists will have to endure but I would think it would also throw up more debris against the sides of the vehicle.

    That looks mean and rugged. Nice job. What's your mpg with the new shoes?

    Thank you-

    I have always gotten between 18 and 22 depending on my driving patterns. These wheels and tires are no more heavy than OEM 20" polished so I've only added a little bit of rolling resistance because of more rubber contact to the road.

    Hey xbreaker sorry for just getting back to you. the offset is +40. i have no issues with rubbing. i have not droped it and to be honest ive had ppl come to me and when i mention a drop they say no, it looks clean the way it is. took some more pics but they look like crap so will take some more later. let me know if you want me to take a specific pic.

    Ok can we throw some CPR on this thread? Anyways.... After reading everyone's insight I've got my wife's new rims and tires on the way. Went Pirelli 285/35-22 with Dropstars 644B 22x10.5 rim. Should be early next week and I'll post some photos once I get them mounted up! Thanks for your test fitting attempts and doing the leg work for us late bloomers! I appreciate it!

    Thanks jester, in my eyes and wifey's all black seems to get lost in the wheel wells so for us a small polished lip to get some contrast gives the wheels a pop. I'll see once I install them! Got my fingers crossed the miss will be happy.
