Also, how is your steering with that size front tire? Does it feel heavier/harder?
24 and 7/8's on three corners except for the passenger side front which is 25" on the nose.

Fenders are not rolled. I'm noticing a bit of rubbing on the passenger rear fender. I believe on high compression, the lettering on the BFG's is touching the inside lip at the 2 o'clock position of the well when facing it. It's very minor, but I need to address it. The other three sides have no rubbing.

The steering is a trade off. The turn in is dramatically improved, but the car does follow road imperfections a lot more than it used to. Parking lot steering effort is probably half again as difficult as it was with stock fronts. I love the ride and handling. I still need to reinforce my rear shock mounts.

I should also add that the steering at speed is heavier, but it's reassuringly heavier- it feels better and more substantive. I have very little squat on WOT which is also nice.
