2002 ford explorer xlt
Ok so i have a set of wheels for my 2002 Ford Explorer XLT.The stock wheels i have now are P235/70R/16 and there about 9 maybe 9 n a quarter inches wide.My wheels that i want to put on it are 305/40R 22 114v and there about 11 inches wide.Will i have any troubles just putting them on?Will they rub or will i have to cut my wheel well out a bit or need a lift? Havnt tried it just yet just seeing if anyone with a little more knowledge would know anything.Thank you in advance.

It's likely they will rub but I'm not sure.

I did the calculations it may fit but going to mostly depend upon the rim specs i.e. offset backset etc.

Ghost, somewhere there is a thread that has info on wheel backspacing and offset... I really think those are going to the critical factors in your application. I'll try to find it too. Take care.
