I want to get 22's for my 94 fleetwood but im gettting mixed feed back on fit.
Will they fit? 22x9.5 with 265/35/22 tires? thats what i want on there if not what size do i need and i heard i have to shave the skirt latches off and replace them with screws. this car has that same tire size http://www.cardomain.com/ride/665178. it looks like its a little high i want my car to sit a little higher then that thogh could i put the spacers in? or springs i dont want it like a 4x4 but a little lifted.

Nvr2lo posted this pic towards the last page on the dubs and above thread in post your rides section. Ask him what he had to do to run 22's.

NOTHING NEEDS TO BE DONE TO RUN 22'S ON A FLEETWOOD .... EXCEPT YOU WILL LOSE YOUR TURNING RADIUS IN THE FRONT WITH A 9 OR 9.5 INCH WIDE WHEEL ... LOWERING SPRINGS CAN BE USED ALSO .... U-TURNS ARE A BITCH .....

22X9.5 WITH PIRELLI 265-35-22 .... WITH EIBACH LOWERING KIT AND FACTORY AIR RIDE DISCONNECTED ..... ;) :biggrin: :cool:

What did you do to disconnect the factory air ride? Is there a solenoid on the compressor that would un plug? I want to unpug it when its sitting at its highest position.

I puled a fuse to disconnect mine i have manual fill air shox in the back
I went to a rim store today and the guy said that 265/35/22 wont fit that it would rub the top if i put people in the car so he said go 255/30/22 but there to expensive. I do want my car to sit a little higher then stock but could i use those spring boosters to lift it? will theese lift it a little?http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/univ...ryZ33585QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem i dont want it to high.

as long as you have the right offset wheel .... 10-15 mm offset the tires will fit ... no problem except on full turns .... test fit wheels first or feel free to give me a call ..... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its standard offset right 5x127 the guy says the rims are blank and they will drill a lug pattern. But i do wnat to lift the car a little bit. that white fleetwood above you said u think its stock height? i want my car to sit like that or a little higher. but that cars prety much perfect. This rim guy swears i have to lift the car and like role the edge of the front wheel well, and remove the latches on the skirt. did u reprogram ure computer for the new tire and rim size
