I am getting ready to trim the rear fenders for the 315 radials, but just can't get excited about leaving open gaps after cutiing them. Anyone have any pictures of theirs? I have seen a set on Team Prick, but looking for others. Thanks

car is mini-tubbed and the front and rear part of the fenders need to be cut for tire clearance.

just weld the stock lip back on, basically cut a pie-shape out of it.. easy breezy. The back is different, it's just going to be cut.. I can't weld plastic :)

I've got some pics of the firebird somewhere.. I'll post them if I can find 'em.

BRADY....That set-up is SICK!!!!!
:hail: You guys are going to be ready very shortly. I have heard of "100 mile per hour" tape, but I don't think I have heard of any "30 psi boost" tape :eek2:

Are you running 295's or 315's? and how much space do you have between the rear of the tire and the rear bumper cover? (I don't want to cut too much)....I did my last car just like the front of your fenders are done...looks like I will be doing it again. :)

I was great meeting you and Tommy at Holt.

Hey Jason, good finally meeting you too.. I've got about 2" clearance front and back at the lowest edge of the fender and bumper cover. The car is very low though, I'm using 8" tall rear springs..

Is this with the 315? If so did you cut the outer stock wheel well?

By the looks of it the lowest I could get was a 10" spring in there with some 29.5's.

this is with 295's. I cut the top part of the outer wheel tub, and sectioned in some new metal to allow more clearance to lower the car more.. 295's and 315's are almost the same height. 315's will fit too..

it's a P600B ;)

I have 275-40-18s on my car and I can say, I go down the highway, hit a big bump and my tires do rub on something. Im quite sure its the inside, but cant be 100% as I havent taken the tires off since I got the tires (3 weeks ago). My car is lowered. Is there anything I can do (roll fender, beat in the panel on the inside) to avoid this rubbing?
