    With the LT's and 3"y pipe it's low enough for me. I rode in my friend TA with sportlines. I looked cool but scraped everywhere and rode terrible. My other friend has them on his Z28 Vert and we couldn't even get it in mt shop without a lot of undercarrige scraping.

    I'm planning on stuffing 19 inch wheels under it so hopefully it won't be so bad. its really the gap between the fender and tire that bothers me.. right now I have 275/40-17. my goal is to get 335/30-19.. I don't care what I have to do to make it happen but trust it will happen. I bought offset bushings for my rod end LCA's, I'm prepared to destroy my inner fender well and buy huge spacers!! lol

    I don't think 335's are possible with 17s let alone 19's. Might want to do some research before you ruin your car.

    like I've said in another thread I got my inspiration from a gm high tech article where someone did exactly what I want to do. all he said was that he heavily massaged the fender lips

    335s do work on 18s. wheels wells and such just need some adjustments. 335 tires

    His tires were 325's, which are still pretty damn wide.
