    Will these wheels work?

    Looking at ordering a set of wheels. Here are the specs. I'm just not sure about the offset and hub bore.

    22x9 size
    5x114.3 pattern
    38 offset
    74.1 hub bore

    I've merged your post with this existing one on 22" wheels. Check out post #9 .
    What size tires are you looking at using?

    265-40-22 for tires. The hub bore being off by 1mm (assuming mm) isn't a big deal?

    And then the other question would be could I still drop it on the H&R springs and not have rubbing issues?

    That would put you just within the accepted maximum 3% diameter variance. Your variance would be 2.61% compared to the 245/60R18 tire.

    Mine is running the 20's right now, but either way they should be fine. Rims are ordered. Something I haven't seen on an Explorer, at least not that I could find.

    22x9. Just need some tires and they'll be on. May wait til I get the H&R springs and do it all at once.

    super late joining this party but how are the rims with the rubbing now? i was looking into getting rims with the same specs actually but was wondering how much it was going to rub. i dont plan to drop my explorer at all. i just wanted to make sure that there were no issues with turning/bumps. i had my car dropped before with the rims rubbing and over time it just wore a whole in the fender lining and all sorts of bad stuff after
