James, Great website ... I've probably surfed it 100 + times .....

What is your ride height ?

... wouldn't it be nice if EVERYONE posted their ride heights ?

How much space between the ground and your header flanges ?
(I assume that is what is sitting lowest)

What made you settle on the Proxies ?
... I'm considering them also ... used 'em on my "sporty new commuter + canyon car" for years

17x8 Rims in rear
17x7 Rims in front
Shelby leafs in back
620 springs in front with one complete coil cut off
Cant reember tire sizes right now.
I can barely put a q-tip between my front tires and my fender lip.
They are even closer now that I have the car aligned. It does not rub as far as dips/bumps but off camber drieway entries it rubs a bit. But it is worth it!!!!

1969 mustang coupe with 15" summit racing legend wheels.
Front=225x60x15" on 15x7 w/4.25 backspace
Back-275x60x15" on 15x8 w/4.5 backspace
No rubbing and fenders not rolled.


going to eventually drop the front and back a bit but want to keep same angle


view from back, went with max width that would still keep top center under fender
