Hi Mike,

Being a humble tin-basher with multiple projects, I don't have the resources to try many different wheels, tires, and ride heights. The flares can be manipulated during installation to get a bit more room for extra fat tires. Most of the tricks that are used on stock fenders to get more room apply, as well. I have a pair of 16x7 porsche alloys, which come out 16x 8 with the adaptor, but the tires are huge, and I need to get them removed for polishing, and have more reasonable size installed before fitting them to my flares. This is a ways off because of low funding (spending all extra cash on tools)and no time. I would guess that anyone going super wide should get different flares. I made these as fat as I could without ruining the lines of the car, in my opinion. I'm sorry I can't do better than that for now, but I've used up time I don't really have just to get this far. Thanks for the input.
