Widened one wheelhouse today for wider tires

Tonight I did a little bit of hammering on one rear wheel well to tune it up for the wide tires I want to run on the 'stang.

I got a pair of semi worn 275-40-18s for fitment. I have got the one side fitting decently after quite a bit of hammering on the inner wheelhouse.
Now I just have to do the passenger side

Looks nice and nasty with the wide tire sitting in the hole

Lookin' good. From your progress so far, it looks as though you aren't cuttin' any corners. You won't regret takin' the time to do things right. Thanks for the pics. Always enjoy "seeing" whats goin' on w/ others. Helps keep the rest of us motivated.

By the size of those mock-up tires, looks like your rims will be nice and wide. You plan on Narrowing your rearend? Or are you gonna use wheels with an offset?

I am just going to use an offset, even though I like the look of a deeper wheel on wide tires
