Default Anyone running 28*11.5*15 ET Streets???

Hey guys,

I just bought a set of 28*11.5*15 ET Streets and would like to know what cutting and clearancing you did specifically for these tires. I don't want to do anymore than I have to.

From what I can tell I should just cut the front and rear of the fender so that it runs straight down instead of curving in. Is this all that is needed???

thanks

Andy

may not have to cut the bumper at all, every car is different.

the work you will have to do is inside the fender well. will need to remove the bump stops and stuff like that. might have to use a BFH and massage inside there, too, hard to say. every car is different, just have to play with it.

I had to take out the bump stops, I'm running the 12.5's in the rear, had to bang the inside a litttle, they don't rub at all unless I really dive into a turn, but I don't do that at all w/the skinnies I drive on everyday
