Looks good. Did you go with longer studs? What was the clearance issue without the spacers?
I guess that guy doesn't know that the Super Snakes suck and the standard 2013 GT500 is a much better car? LOL But it is a good way to make someone feel bad, so I like your style :beer:
I did not go with longer studs. I felt they still had plenty to bite on to, but may look into upgrading in the future.
The main clearance issue was the wheel hitting a bracket in the fender well. I never took a picture because I originally just posted in TORQJNKY's thread and it had a picture of it hiting in the exact same spot. Maybe he will be nice enough to post it up here. :beer:
So if I remember right, isn't it about $250 a wheel to do this?
Yes, plus shipping. Was well worth it to be able to run the tires I wanted.
The widened wheels do look sweet!
This is the bracket Planeswalker is referring to. The widened wheels hit the area in the yellow circle when the suspension is extended as little as 2-3 inches. You can either use a spacer with the OEM wheels or cut the bracket and flatten it down like I did for use with the Alcoas. I flattened it because the offset of the Alcoa's puts them flush with the fender already. A spacer would cause them to stick out too much.
Great idea and product. But it only took me about 45 minutes a side to modify the existing bracket and I can get full extension on the suspenion with no rubbing with a 11.5" Alcoa. Your relocation bracket would be the way to go if I wanted to stuff a 12" wheel well though. :beer:
