22's on an Explorer

I have a '94 Explorer and was wondering if it is possible to fit 22" rims on it. I found a set with Pirelli Scorpion 295/30/22 tires for a good price. Does anyone have any idea how close that will come to the wheel well? Thanks.

The rims are 22x9.5.

What is the bolt pattern on the Explorers?

They are 22x9.5 with a 5x120mm bolt pattern which is 5x3/4. Will that fit an Explorer?

You will definetely have some rubbing with those wheels. I'm running 20's on my X and they rub when I cut me wheel all the way, either way. I'm running a 265/50 tire on them.

It's all irrelavent because that bolt pattern will not work on an Explorer. Unless you run some rubber band tires, rubbing is almost a given. Those rims are very wide as well. I would go with 20's, 22's on an Explorer is going to be nothing but trouble.
