Hey everyone,

For anyone that has these wheels on your SS, can any of you give me a measurement of the rear wheel. Inner lip to frame. Want to see how much room there is

1- 1/8" is the smallest measurement on my car, the rear is lowered 2-1/2" and coilovers, other than that everything is stock. Hth.

Thank you very much. You're using any spacers at all?

Beautiful SS brotha. How about the measurement from the outer lip to the outside of the fender?

Hi T-Top,

I think that in order for your query to yield value, you need more information, like rim width and tire width.

After all, a bicycle tire would offer amazing clearance inside and outside (!)

Best,

245/45/17 , 17x8, and 4 -1/4" backspacing. I just assumed he knew the dimensions of the wheel since he was asking about the n90 replicas.

OK - my mistake. I didn't know that the N90 was offered in just one width. Carry on... (!)

Just as an additional point of reverence, the section width is 9.6" for the 245/45/17, g-Force Sport Comp 2, Brent is running. That could help determine how much room you would have if using a different brand tire with a different section width and/or a wheel with different backspacing
