Default opinions on my 20X11 fitment...pics inside

Need opinions guys. How much work am I looking at to clear these? Maya doesn't stamp offsets, so I measured them and estimate the rears to be 20x11 +26. I'm thinking about a 245/35 or 255/30 tire. Will a shave be enough? Current tires (295/25) are preventing me from jacking the wheel up, but the rim looks even with the fenders with a 3 inch gap. So I think it should be fine.

Shave won't be enough with those offsets you're entering the real of camber and fender work.

really? i was hoping i wouldn't because the rim looked even with the outside of the fender at a 3" gap so i was hoping it would clear as the suspension compressed. i would rather shave the backpad instead of pulling the fenders.

^ You shouldn't have to pull unless you're dead set on not using some negative camber.

This is my daily driver so I want to avoid extra camber. I'm lowered on megans, I think my rears are at 2 degrees right now with the camber bolt set to max positive.

It should camber in. Just shave them rears, drop it, and see what it does. More than likely they'll camber in though so you SHOULDN'T have any problems.

It should tuck a bit if you drop it low enough with a shave. When you lower it, it will automatically camber. Depending on how low will determine how much camber.

You're running a small pull in the rear ya? How's the tread life with that camber? I wouldn't think it's too bad so long as you have caster and toe setting in check.
