    9.5"-10" Wheel and 275 Tire = No Modification

    10.5"-11" Wheel and 315 Tire = Grinding off Bumpstop and Bangout of some of the Wheel Well

    Backspacing makes a little bit of a difference, but not that much...the above is a good rule of thumb to go by.

    It all depends on the car.

    Some fit 315's without issue. Others require fender rolling and hammer work on the wheel wells.
