Default Tucking 325/50/15s...

I'm sure a bunch of people have done this over the years... but I had a lot of nay sayers locally so thought I'd post up some pics... Buddy had some prostars 15x10 w/ 4.5 in Backspacing... Threw them on (narrowed 9 inch) and the 325s cleared just fine with minimal inner fender well massaging... I was impressed but it sucks that I just got some new 275/60s mounted on my Greg Weld... Car DEAD hooks even outta the hole with spray on the street with these tires... Unbelievable how much a little width matters even when you're talking a Drag Radial tire... Anyways here are a few pics...







I'm tough... lol

I wouldn't say those are quite "tucked". 5.5" backspace would "tuck" them.

If you wanna get technical no its not tucked.. but it fits in the fender well and works. That was my point behind it.
