Have a fat guy sit on your rear fender and find out.
I doubt you get more than an inch of travel from the shocks. Wierd that the offset is setup that way on the rims though. I'd be more worried about rock chips on the paint with tires that wide. It's a concern on my Dakota.

It's interesting that you mention that.
My friend made a point to mention and show me that his Shelby came with what's basically mudflaps or rock guards on the back side of the rear wheel well. His car came like that from the factory, so maybe that's just how the wheels are?
Another thought, as I mentioned in the Shelby forum, is is possible that the Shelbys have a narrower rear axle?
