18x10.5 WHEEL/TIRE FITMENT PHOTOS FOR REFERENCE

Well, I know everyone's always asking what's able to be tucked under the rear wheel wells without much modification, and everyone always wants pics.

Billstein revalved shocks
BMR 1" lowering springs
Wheels are 18x10.5" AFS polished Z06's. +56mm offset, 7.88" backspace
Tires are Nitto 555R's 305/35-18

I wanted a setup that wouldnt stick out past the fender or require much modification to get it to fit.

After a few trials and checking suspension under load, I determined nothing was needed. Under full load there's still 1/4" of clearence with the front of the fender well. I did however have to grind the bumpstops/brackets back about 1/4" to make sure the rim lip cleared when there was no load on suspension (jacking up car- if u need further info read here) . Could have probably got away without doing it, but honestly for the 30 min it took, its worth doing.

now the pics-

UNFORTUNATELY, PICS APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN MOVED

Always fun running low 12's/high 11's with a hitch on the car.

Again - just remember the concerns i went through before finally ordering the rims and tires. The sticky and posts were a great help, figured I'd throw some pics and reference info up for future use.

And goddamn, the new setup is great on the street.
