opie, that is some big rubber you have on that 69 there! I would not have thought 18s would fit but doesn't look to be a problem at all with yours. Did you do some mods to the wells?

slight massaging with a hammer to the inner wheel well on the rear, nothing major. i probably could have gotten by without but just incase of side to side movement from hard cornering, i did it. peace of mind i suppose more than anything. due to the back spacing, i am running 1" spacers all the way around.

Do you have any rubbing issues even with people riding in the back seat?
