Default Opinions needed, tire too far under fender?

I am kinda **** about things.....below are two sets of pics, which one looks best..the one WITH the 1/4 inch spacer in the rear or without...let me know please.

CLICK THE PIC FOR LARGER PICTURE

WITH 1/4 INCH SPACER




WITHOUT SPACER










It(to me) without the spacer is tucked too far, like a secondhand racecar that the guy bought the wrong offset wheels for, I HATE THAT....opinions needed.

Thanks
David

if it was me id not use the spacer, being tucking in a little isnt bad at all.
think it helps performance too.

i think it looks really good with the spacers...just a mean street stance. Although if it was dropped down, and could tuck those 325/50's I am sure it would look sick as well. But at the height I would run the spacers.

Has that rear been narrowed at all? I am getting ready to do a 12 bolt, but I was considering getting it in the 3rd gen width, since thats about 2" shorter on each side. I saw your post about the mini-tubs, and I have also been thinking about that since. If ya want, please throw me a PM with some more info about your setup. Thanks, Kyle.

The car will be lowered to where the top of the tire will be even with the top of the fenderwell, with all the weight in the car, so tucked would prolly be better.

Specs on the combo:

15x10 Convo pro
9 inch narrowed 3 inches per side
325/50 Drag Radial
full minitub, with outer fender lip clearanced and fuel tank notched for 9 inch

I will look at it when it has all the weight in the car with it lowered, it will prolly look different.

Thanks for all the input

David

i'd go spacerless. safer, less weight, and it looks better!
