that makes sense, if the 10.5s sit flush and the 9.5s are an inch sunk, so ya, another 2.5 inches of poke

Here's another idea:


slap on some overfenders and call it a day. GL on the build

They do not have any fender flares that slowly transition into the rest of the wheel well? Seems like those just have the sharp "cut-off" which doesn't look that appealing IMO.

If you're using a 6" outer lip with a 7" inner lip it'll be a 20x13 -9mm. That will stick out 2.52" past the fender. Widebody or an insane pull with body work is the way to go.

yes i think 2.5 inches is what its going to stick out by,,,which im hoping a extreme pull will take care of ,,,,,and so my offset will be -9? interesting

I hope not man ,,I was just saying if I had to go widebody I would prefer the overfenders like he has over the widebody kits like vertex or the knock offs etc.....

I should have pics soon hopefully ill have a better idea by then
