Here are 275's on 9's vs on 10's



And here are a couple pics of the 10's mounted on the car.

Wow, thats pretty dramatic. And is it just me, or does it look like those hoosiers could still benefit from an even wider wheel than the 15x10?

I mounted some 245 hoosiers on the 15x10s just to see how much they stick out with stock body work. It's pretty bad as said above. Stock fender says om nom nom.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys! I don't want to pollute this thread with my car build so I posted more pics in the original FS thread.

Where is the hydraulic pump located for your hoist, up in the attic? Can you let me know the widest measurement of your hoist setup? Looks amazing (car and garage)

Did some work with the fender roller. I really need to get a tire to test fitment, but this is what I have so far.

Are you going to pull the fronts, too, or do something else?

After seeing the 15x10s with 245 hoosiers mounted to a NA with pulled fenders, the fronts had me worried. I'm not sure what the metal is going to look like with that much pulling.

Haven't decided on the fronts yet. I was thinking about making spacers for mount under the bumper and bottom mount to tilt the fender out. Its difficult to get too much of a pull on the fronts because they flex alot more than the rears.

Also if any of yall that have run the 245's have a one that is heat cycled out that you are going to toss, I'll pay to get it shipped over here.

I would consider cutting the front fender at the line towards the door, add a bracket to pull it out. It should help evacuate the air in the wheel well too, maybe decreasing drag.



Like that, except it doesn't join to a side skirt at the bottom.

It'd be tough to pull out the front portion of the fender though, it will start pulling the bumper with it.

More like this, but cut at the OEM line.
