Yeah so you are running the wider tires from the inside out. We are designing a kit so that you dont have to run spacers or flare the fenders.

I'm running 225s in the rear with 38mm offset 15x7 wheels and 6mm spacers. The spring perches required a little bit of grinding and the fenders rolled but other then that they fit fine.

With coilovers (and proper offset wheels) I can't really see this as problem. I just got them, haven't pushed them hard yet so I don't know if the tires will roll into the strut yet.

This should allow me to run 225/45-15's on 15x8 +36 6ul's without a spacer in the rear. I already know they fit on the front.

15x7 ET40 requires rolling of fenders in back which we did long ago... 15x7 ET45 requires 3mm spacers for our p10 g20 w/225 45 15 hoosiers in rear only (which run wider than normal 225s btw)

fronts are not a problem (do not need spacers or rolled fenders w/225s FWIW) with either ET45 15x7 or ET40 15x7

Mostly we just run 225s in front and 205s in back (cheaper tires and actually faster lap times by a few 10ths with the skinnier tires in back -- go figure huh?)

I had slight rubbing that i fixed with a roll, and I took off some material from the spring perch.
I get the occasional rub on a hard corner with an elevation change, it's probably the sidewall deflecting some.

Ok, finally got my Toyos mounted on the 6UL's. RA1's in 225/45-15 all around. They clear with close to an inch to spare in the back with no spacers required.

I can fit my fingers in between the tire and the strut

So at least another 3/4" available

I have to run a 5mm spacer up front to clear the BABK

I'm hoping not to need any fender work front:

or rear:

Joe that looks amazing! Nice and flush

Looks good! I'm liking the red much more than the black with polished lip.
