    What offset?
    I got them to fit without a minitub but i had to cut the bumpstops and hammer the hell out of those wheel wells. Definitely took a while to get a decent amount of clearance and it still rubbed when i had 4 people in the car. It's possible with the right offset but it's really tight. Also matters on the tire. I ran 335 BFGs and i know they are a little wider than other brands.

    This thread has a few pics but i'll see if i got more under the wheel wells

    i got fikse 17x9.5 front & 18x11.5 with BFG 335 tires, basically the same set up you have. What and what did you pound and what tools did you use? also did you use spacers?

    some pictures of your inner fenders would be great help guy, if you have any laying around.

    With the right offset you shouldn't have to run spacers. Be sure you have an adjustable panhard bar installed and adjustable lcas would help as well.

    this is all I had uploaded. My laptop was recently stolen along with all my pictures. just mainly to show how much room I had

    Dam that's close man lol, that thing with the ridges is the guard rail huh, you can't pound that? mine are rubbing on it and in the inner fender as well. I'm thinking i may have to run 1.75 inch spacers. Im not to sure on the off-set i got them from a buddy and he forgot so im f**K

    thanks for the picture by the way.

    Are your quarter panels rolled? Id do that as well if I was you. You can take measurements on your wheels, follow this diagram.

    1.75" sounds like a big spacer to run, i'd try to avoid that if possible

    There is a lot of cutting and hammering involved. The car was later totaled, and I went with minitubs and I am completely satisfied with the fitment and the amount of room they provide.

    Angle grinder with a 4" cutoff wheel(s).

    I used POR15 (expensive) and rubberized undercoating, but you could probably get away with simple rattle can Rustoleum and the undercoating.
