    and the fronts are easy, take out the top liner and screws, roll the small lip, and then pull away, slow and steady.

    he cant do 245 with 30 offset will be rubbing rears 100%. some of guys has 18x9.5 38 offset with 235/40/18 and have to pull rears still.


    if he gets coilovers, camber a lot and pull rear fenders he will make it because its 215's .. the question is how hard he will have to pull fender?? and how its gonna look after all.

    good luck man!! just take your time with pulling and make it nice ! waiting for the finish results !!

    with a stretch and wheels like that i feel like you need the proper suspension for it to look right. And im aware he wouldnt be able to run 245s on those like i was saying if i had a speed id be looking for a larger contact patch more tire than wheel not stretching baby ass 215s on a 9.5. To each there own. Just go coilovers, youll thank yourself later. Your tires are most likely gunna get eaten by your fenders lowered on springs.

    Where do u need more contact patch on the streets to take off ramps at 90 miles an hour or the one time a year that you do actually go to the track ?

    I'm pretty sure when you have a skinny (relatively), stretched tire on a wheel that has 5 degrees of negative camber, the least of your worries is how it'll do at the track. I'd be more worried about driving that shit in any sort of rain. I think he was just worrying about the actual driveability in real world conditions.
