Does anyone know how much distance there is between the hub and the stock suspension and the hub to the fender? This is for wheel fitment. I have know how the offset and such works but I don't know how much room I have to play with. I found some nice wheels.



17x8 +8 for the front probably with like a 215/45-50ish tire.



and



17x9 +11 for the rear with about a 225/45-50ish tire.



How do you guys think these will fit? I'm trying to work out what kind of spacers i'll need if they are necessary and how it'll work with the fenders and what kind of overfenders I'll need if needed.



Thanks

Thanks excellent. Anyone know how much space is between a TII wheel and the fender and the inside of the wheel and the suspension?

I made it a little easier. The tires will stick out 45 mm in the front and 54 mm in the rear. Can some please measure for me the space between the rim and the fender? For front and back. If you don't have stock wheels you can still give me the distance as long as you include the size and offset of the wheels. Any measurent would make my day!

Those rims will not fit under stock fenders.
