285 tires

Switched out rims with the white gt. Is 285 the largest i can go without removing the quad shocks? Or can I put 315s? 18x10.5 in rear. 98 GT.

Im running 285/40/17 on mine. No problem with the quad shocks here i clear them just good. You could do 315 however i probably would recommend spacer then just to be safe.

How much space from the quad shocks? Pic if you got one would be awesome so as well as op i can see if its possible. And what offset?

Just upgrade your control arms and remove the quad shocks

Easy fix

I can get a pic in a couple hours and I'll post it. The offset I believe is +27mm
