That's still tucked in a decent amount. Not great pics, but this is my friends Cobra with 315 R888s on 11" wheels. Offset matters.

Why is there a leg in the pic? Is the person taking the picture in a fold up chair with leg crossed over the other leg with a mixed drink in one hand?

Running 315 in the rear and 1 inch spacers up front, 1 1/2 out back
Right now the rear wheel gap is a little too big for me and the wheel sticks outta the fender a little. With coil overs and pulled fender it will look amazing.

Personally I think it looks like *** with the wheels sticking out that far and I hope to god you don't try to hellaflush it to tuck it under the fenders.

Let me know if you want more angles and I'll take a few more pics. This is with 315 MT street comps and 1/8" spacers from MM.

Man idk what it is, but I live how the wide tires stick out the fender, I've already seen a few around here lowered and spacers on 315 and its sexy as hell but yea if you can get more angles even better thanks

To do the 1 1/2 out back what else besides the spacers did you need? Extended studs?

About how far Would a 1/2" spacer push out 275/40/r17's on the rear? Would it be flush with the fender or not even close?

If you are on 8 wide a 275 is too wide first off and second you'll need an inch and a half spacer which I wouldn't recommend. I'd just get new rims when it comes time for new tires.

On a 8" just stick with 245s and let it tuck. I personally think it looks even worse with a skinny tire spaced out to the fender.

Just a pic on my phone. Still haven't been able to take new ones. I like it just flush with the fender or maybe even just a tiny bit tucked. I'd go wider if they'd stay under the car. Love that look.

Yup, just ever so slightly tucked is perfect just like that. Like if you were to just really load the suspension the tire would barely miss hitting the fender lip.

Hope to have mine looking like that this spring. 315 Mickeys here I come!

The 315s - especially being MTs - are easily my favorite "mod" so far besides getting rid of the 4x4 look. I can't stop checking out her ***!
