    315 17x11 wheels and tires

    Just got my torque thrust 2 wheels 17x9.5 and 17x11. I am lowered on the pro kit and the 315's were hitting what I believe to be the bump stop (metal piece which is extending out toward the wheel) in the rear. What would be the best solution for this issue a spacer or some modification? Any help and what is recommend will be greatly appreciated. Stock wheels are on the car until I find out what to do. Thanks!

    I have seen some guys trimm the bump stops down some. There is also the bfh mod (big freaking hammer). But that tends to go more for tires that are rubbing. Spacer may help some but with 315s the tire will poke quite a bit out. Also you may need to roll the fender lips.

    I got my fenders rolled i really don't want to mod the bump stop unless theres no other solution, what size spacer do you think? Thanks

    Somewhat gonna depend on what tires you have. Ex nittos tend to run narrow in 305 and 315 sizes. But just taking a guess a 13 or 15mm.

    I have nitto nt555 on the front and back didn't get the drag radials. I bought these because people said they were better for fitment but guess theres still need for modifications. Spacers would require longer lugs correct?

    Most likely will need longer studs with a big enough spacer.
