Well, whatever 235 mm turns out to be...I think the highest you wanna go is 245 mm....

On stock rims anyway, but any past that, they'll rub without spacers, then yeah, they'll stick out..

SSEi95 was the first here to move to 255'*. He had to make some minor modifications in order to go full lock on the steering. 245 should be the max you can go without modifications.

And yes, Gordy wears a black bra. Please don't post that in a public forum though. His private life should stay that way.





My humor improves SO much when I'm blasted.
