I can tell you that I have a standard 930 turbo flare setup. I have a 74 chassis, but the flares are real metal. The 265-45-16s fit fine inside the flares, the left side on mine - has slight rub, but only on hard acceleration on right corners...

I am using 2" spacers and have 8" fuchs.

If you had a 1.75" or 1.5" spacers (on my setup) the tires would have about .5" on each side as a gap with these tires.

I would say if you get these tires you should be fine if your setup is very similar.

All things being equal - the tires are almost identical in fit to the 255/50/16s that I had on there originally, but they are slightly wider (by maybe 3/8" toward the outside)

Of course I have about 3" going toward the inside. If I had 10" or 11" wheels in the rear - these tires would be even more awesome looking.
