8" wide rims+225's and NO flares on the back...

Did some test fitting last night with an extra set of late model 911 rims i have sitting around in the garage.

These have a 52mm offset.

The front fit fine (6" rim) it would need a one inch spacer to look right, it is tucked in too far. A 7" rim or even an 8" rim up front would work as well.

For the rear, the tire hit the trailing arm and the
inside of the fenderwell/trunk wall.

If the trailing arm was notched (about .5") and the fender
well/trunk area was moved towards the car centerline,
I think these would fit just fine. This approach would
be similar to how the hotrod guys "tub" a car to put
big fat tire on it without flares.

Control arm interferance

I have a set of 225x16 on 8" phone dials to test fit. I plan to use longer wheel studs and a 3/4" spacer. Looks like it should fit though...
