If you do it any other way then this... Make sure you do you math right.. Are you will end up with the tires to far out, Or like some people WAY to far inside the lip of the fender.. Good luck..
Very good point! Nothing will ruin the look of a car more than a tire wheel combo that doesn't sit right. Some cars look better with tires tucked in, and some look better hanging out. Regardless of what you choose, it needs to be right for the car.
I've always disliked the look of cars with big tires tucked too far in, but I like old cars with some tire hanging out, if the body design works for that setup.
