This is on a S197 car. I'm running 325/50/15 on 10" wide Bogarts and the sidewalls stick out past the quarters about an 1 1/2" and I just don't like how it looks. The simplest answear would be to just go with a little narrower tire but I like how well these tires hook.
There is enough room to get these tires completely in the stock wheel wells if the bump stop brackets are cut off the inside of the wheel wells. The main reason I would like to just get the tubes out of the housing and narrow it that is I would not have to change the flanges then. YES I do know that NHRA says I need to be running C-clip eliminator axels but thats not really a concern of mine since I'm not running sanctioned events. The truth is with rear disc brakes even if the axel breaks it will not come out because the caliper brackets will hold it in.
Yeah I know the best solution is to narrow it from the outside in with new 9" flanges and relocate all the brackets
Just thinking out loud
