Pics of 295's with 5MM spacers

Pics of 295's with 5MM spacers

Figured I would post some pics of my 295 setup since I installed 5mm spacers.....will be fitting 305's soon I believe LOL!! Really like the beefy look!

Pic of my car with 295's next to my buddies (whosdady) wich has 265's.



Still some room, could put a 8MM spacer on there. With a 305 I believe I will go with a 3-5MM spacer.

Looks great! Don't know how you did it with 295's. I'm having major rubbing issues even with 265's on a 10" wheel.

You can fit a ton especially with PRE LCI. With my LCI I ran a 285/30 on a 11.5 rim and the axles on the PRE LCI are 8mm shorter per side.

It comes down to how bad you want it to fit. A little bit of fender work and a but of camber and it will work just got to fuck with it

Yeah, unfortunately those wheel makers won't release the offsets for this set. It's alright, I'm gonna make it work.

Yeah, I was reading things about the Pre LCI and LCI's axle being slightly different. I'm sure I can make it fit better but having gone through quite a few Hellaflush setup's on my previous car and wasted ton's of money from trial and error I am pretty much done with it.

I actually did some fender mods this past weekend but it's still not enough. I chose to trim/shaved my fender versus rolling since I can't see how it can be rolled due to the double metal and the slight curve. Then there's tons of urethane silicone inside the lip that might interfere when rolling. I said F it and grab my dremel to trim away lol. It's a lot better now but still needs more finessing.

Thanks for the tip Rob! I already started the shaving process and monitoring what else it's still rubbing on and in hopes I can cut it where it's rubbing only.
