I ran this combo for years (7x15 Cookie Cutters front and rear with 225/50s all around). I had zero issues. I also ran 245/45-16s on 8x16s up front, too, so it is possible to stuff a lot of tire up there. Possible.

One thing about these cars though is that there are no guarantees. What fits on one car won't necessarily work on another.

No Flares

Bli8....

Sorry for the delay.... I hadnt looked at this thread for a few day now......

NO, nope... no flared fenders at all, stock 74 body.

76 911s 3.0....

I made a mistake when writing...... I have 225 "45" 15's in the rear...... I do NOT have 245's..... I was barely able to fit the 225-45-15 under there with STOCK flares and nooooo rubbing. They are stuffed under there at the limit......

For the rear, are the 18MM spacers for looks or do you rub on the inside w/o them? Asking because if you still have room on the inside, maybe 245's can be run w/ 10mm thinner spacers.

And looks like you have some room in the front too and have you consider running 225's?

i run 6 & 7 x 15ís and 205/55-15 all around.

second pic has 7ís front and back. not a fan of the look, i prefer the offset wheels.

this car is about to get a 3.6, so iíll likely run 205 and 225-16ís on a pair of 951 fuchs i have.

i tried 50ís but they geared the car too low for my tastes. i also had to lower the car too much for practical daily driving...

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy car parts which is kind of the same thing.
