Sounds like you have a low offset wheel. Its not the tires. You need a +30 and higher offset wheel for the wk.

I believe that would make the problem worse...

What is your wheel offset? Stamped on the back of the wheel is a number, assuming its a quality wheel, with the letters "ET ##"

If you want to know more about offsets search the site, it's a common question.

Re: Tires sticking out

Re: Tires sticking out

you have a 9.5 wide rim on the front wheel? That's wide. 9" should really be the biggest for the front end. Up to 10" on the rear should be fine with an ET 51. Your ET should be like 40 to 45 with that width, but on the front I don't know if that would clear the suspension components. It would be close for sure....

Before you spend big money on wheels or tires, check the basics

1) Are the wheels balanced? Get them checked.
2) Are the brakes working properly. My wife's truck had vibrations once, and it was a bad front caliper...
3) Wheel alignment can't hurt and is also inexpensive.

an ET35 would be correct for a 9 inch wide rim, like the front srt rims. Also, 22 inch rims tend to be heavier than 20 inch rims, which can be harder on brakes and suspension.

Ideally, if you could borrow someone's regular wheels and tires for a spin around the block, you could quickly determine if it's the wheels or something else, but who keeps spare wheel sets in stock sizes...

Out of curiosity, Have these wheels always had this problem? Did you have a different set of wheel and tires before?
