Calling all wheel & tire detectives

I'm about to do a refresh of my wheels and tires on my 83SC and I keep coming back to this image as inspiration. Now I'm not a fan of the of a over stanced cars or the entire hella flush movement, however this silver backdate has arguably the best stance I've ever stumbled upon. What do you suppose the setup consists of? My guess would be 15x8 & 15x7 w/ spacers. Tires look like kumho ecsta.

Parctically speaking would this setup work without rubbing. The rear has an seamless transition from the fender to the tire. How hard would this be to recreate?

I like the way the car is setup, WAG is 8 & 9 x15 225/245, tires but who knows

Absolutely no way it doesn’t rub at all 4 corners unless it’s running 1,000# coilover or virtually zero suspension travel

I think you're right, simply doesn't look like enough clearence. I'm sure if this was possible as a comfortable daily driver we would see it more.

That's a cool stance, like Singer does I think, I don't know how. Their fenders are probably special, not stock. Here's my 1988 Carrera, lowered to euro height I believe? Just enough that I have trouble with entering some driveways and crossing some drainage dips at intersections. I had to roll my front fenders a little to avoid the 17" tires from catching on turns when under suspension travel. I do a lot of diagonal crossing of hazards if I can catch them in time. Your SC may be a little different though...
1st with original 15" Fuch wheels, 2nd with aftermkt 17" C2 wheels

It looks like they would rub. Mine is lowered and has 255's on the rear and 215's on the front no problem on the back but slight rub in certain compression situations while cornering at slow speeds.

Nice look. What size Fuchs are you running?

fenders can be massaged to look like that, a lot of hammer and dolly work. a buddy of mine just built a car for a customer with very similar fenders.

it ain't cheap, but sure looks good.

i reckon those are 9's on the rear, fronts are likely 7 or 8's...

Hello,Going by the number plate,unless you live in Australia and New South Wales in particular you are not very likely to see it at all! Not sure about all that tyre paint on the tread. Regards,Michael.
