I think the 15X9 UL with the new Toyo R888 235/50/15 with some rolling and those "flares" will look fantastik, and that's what I'm gonna do

I want...BAD!!!
Emilio, I want two sets as soon as I can afford them. Do you plan to keep these in stock or is this gonna be limited production. I hope I don't miss out as I am knee deep into my motor and turbo builds and cannot afford to buy these anytime soon.

They are limited production in the sense that they sell out as fast as I can make them.

Default They be fitting

BellWilliam is officially the first guy to get a set on the road and he was nice enough to let me drive it first. Full tread 225/45/15 NT01.

So..... No rubbing. Anywhere. At all. We chucked it around the local business parks, bashed through a driveway at about 40mph, full lock donuts on bumpy pavement with a passenger. That's an NB with 9/6 Flex at about 12.6", -2 camber and a very slight roll at the front edge of the front fender lip only. 100% stock rear, full liners all the way around.

To tell you the truth, William and I were a bit dissapointed. We both expected to have to drag the Eastwood out for him to get home.

So I'm revising the fitment guide. NB with 225/45's fit about the same as the 15x8.

You're looking at it the wrong way. You probably got your 8's at the old price. When I am out, resale is, um good. You simply rented a set for about $15/month.

Well this sucks since my 15x8's (for my NB) are supposed to ship within a few days.

Default 275 Hoosier



Rear
The 275 has about 5/8" clearance to the inner fender in rear, right under the outer lip. Might work with a pull.

Front
A little past the lip with about 2.4 camber. Clears a 2.5" coil straight ahead. Tire hits the spring at full lock either way. Rubs the brake line at full lock but that's an easy fix. Cleared the pinch weld behind the tire with room to spare.
