is this concerning those AZA rims on wheelmax thetiredpimp? i still dont fully understand the concept of how wide we can go...speed4theneed, how do you solve that front width issue? wouldnt Spacers in the front with an 8.5 width make it worse on the issue of scraping...wouldnt that just add one more inch further out causing it to scrape?
another question: say someone wants to opt for fender flares, like the ones in production over at the "other site"...what are the exact specifications for tires, ive done every search i still cant find the best answer...for example sr71 has 19x8 with forged 2 inch Spacers...thats 10inches wide all around..how does he do that?...the one in the ecelica store is only 1 inch Spacers, so does that mean i need to find a 9inch width since there are only 1 inch Spacers at the ecelica store? (to make this look flush on fender flares)
no, Spacers would not make the scraping problem worse. it actually helps them because it'll push your wheel out a little more giving your wheel a little bit more room when your steering wheel is fully turned
(most Spacers are like 1/2" or 1" so this will give your wheels/tires 1/2" or 1" of 'extra' space before scraping (obviously you can get longer Spacers if you want)
second question: i'm not a fan of Spacers over 1"..in my opinion long Spacers are just not the best at taking a lot of stress (like during hard cornering for example). you can either find a 2" spacer (i don't recommened it but others have done this and they sell them elsewhere) or you can buy 9" wides and a 1" spacer. it's more expensive this way but the long run result is better because you have 1. a wider wheel/tire which is better in traction and 2. more reliability in my opinion.
(for the front tires i wouldnt get a 9" wide wheel with a 1" spacer--scraping. but the rears will be fine.)
