usually anything wider than 7 will rub. but that depends on how low you are too. i would love to run 8" wide on my ep but i dont think it will fit.

boilermaker rubs 8" wide wheels, too lazy to find pics. and i know of one person with a widebody who ran 11.5" in the rear, again, lazy to find pics.

im going to be running rims that are 15x8 +0 they will stick out a tiny bit, but if i put some negative camber on them i'll still be able to tuck, we'll see. hope i dont need to get widebody fenders.

NOFX, Yes I have a 05 lx...slow as hell for right now.

LongGrain, I have never liked the slanted camber look, even if it is subtle. I will probably roll my fenders. Can you post some pics of your 15x8 when you are done, want to see that.

i dont have the rims, but they are what i plan to run. the amount of camber i'd be running wouldnt be noticeable at all. but if i leave the rims at 0 camber, without over fenders they will stick out a lil, due to the 0 offset, they have ~4 inches of lip.

thats ballin as fuck, i'll probably run 205's on the back of mine, and 195's up front just cuz 195 will be stretched a lil, and i like that. i dont need amazingly wide tires, altho i might go with 215's in back. im afraid im gonna be a rolling smokebomb if my tires arent wide enough. here's what i'll be running:

I could have sworn your profile said you had a '06. I was wondering why you were posting in 7th gen. :lol:

roll the fenders and run a stretched tire....that combination along with some camber should do the trick.

sorry, i love wide wheels on a veedub
