Default Fitment Help

On my 97ls400 Im running some Rays Lexion 301s that are f20x8.5 +38 r20x9.5 +39. Conservative offsets I know...
Im on EZ streets not tucked but no gap in rear and slight gap up front to get up my driveway.

Tires currently are f225/35/20 r255/35/20. Im debating to go with spacers but wondering the best size spacers for my set up without having to pull the fender. I just want to either shave/roll for clearance.

This is my daily commuter beater and I have 3 kids so as much as Id love to be slammed and cambered it's just not practical for me at this point.

I need new rear tires so I want to get the right size for my offsets and spacer setup.

Any suggestions are welcome, Im sure PD will have some insights....thank in advance guys....

I personally wouldnt get more than a 20mm spacer and maybe go with a 235/35 on the rears for a modest fitment

what i suggest is to get your preferred rear tire specs (i suggest a 245), shave/roll the fenders, THEN adjust for spacers. it is easier to buy the right sized spacer when everything is all done and ready to go. it takes less of the guess work out.

If your gonna get spacers anyways... Get the powered by max adjustable spacers. Then you don't have to guess
