    They are 7.5" wide. I dont know how you are able to fit 8.5" wide! I feel like I am almost maxing the available space out as it is. Are you also running 17s?

    They're also 17's, but yeah they don't fit :P I originally pulled the fenders to help with that and used thinner bolts to get more negative camber in the front. As of tonight I'll be finishing up the flares and hammering back any of the stuff that's touching the tire while reversing lol

    Well it wounds awesome. Have you done anything else to the suspension in order to fit?
    Youll have to post some pictures!

    If I am not mistaken itís 195/55R16 stock for the 16Ē
    And 185/60R15 for the stock 15Ē

    Hi Impul, yes you are right about that. I was just wondering if anyone has advice for what tire size to run when on lowering springs. Was thinking a 205/40/16? Maybe a 45?

    How much are you lowering it?

    Iíve used 205/55r16 with 1-1/4Ē drop
    And 225/50R16 both lead to some rub.

    There are tabs for mounting the front/rear bumper fascia to the body.

    Removing these tabs and using the quick release system helps. If you want more you need to roll the genders out abit
    There can still be some rub on cornering so get use to not going full lock.
    Using a drift angle kit can help that but now your looking at a few cerb chqs.
