K9 - Thanks for the help!


Thanks for the comments. I'll head out in a minute and snap a couple more pictures.

The rear tires are 245/45/16 and the front are 205/55/16. The shorter side wall in the rear has changed the height a little. I believe it's 26" to center of the lip in front and 25 1/4 " in the rear. Once I decide on the new suspension components and install them I'll have the height adjusted along with corner balance and alignment.

The folks at Dougherty Auto services ( DAS) did the install and said that clearance should not be a problem. No lip rolling etc. I haven't run it hard yet, but the drive home from the shop was just fine. My understanding is that there is very little benefit of a 9" width over an 8" rim. You would still runn a 245 45.

I'll try posting some other shots shortly to give a better sense of width.

Jeff
