I run the factory spacers 28mm with my 10's with 275/40's and it fits in there. Guess I got lucky!

And that's still a close fit. So, on an SC or Carrera, the 10s would require some serious bodywork. Yeah, I tried too. But gave up since I liked the body on my SC unmolested. Here are the 10s with 15mm spacers on my 930. It's a spot on fit.
