Guess it all depends on what you want to do.
- You want them to fully tuck?
- You modifying the inner lip at all?
- Going with the airshocks?

BTW - The front wheel wells are freaking huge too. Some really skinny tires are going to look even skinnier under that thing.

Sorry... don't know what hijackers are...

325/50R15's on a 15x10 or 15x11 with 5 5/8" backspacing.

WHAT BUDDY YOU DONT KNOW WHAT GABRIEL HIGH JACKERS ARE ??? BETTER KNOWN TO THE NON STINK BUGGERS AS AIRSHOCK'S


And as far as wheels for our cars with no fender work being needed on a 15" wheel only I have found is 10" maybe an 11" but very happy with the 10" with 4.5" and a 295/50/15 or a 275/60/15

Lol. Sorry, guess I need to brush up on that stuff. Jacking up the rear end doesn't help the pinion angle if you know what I mean...

Well, if he's using Hijackers, Highjackers, or Airshocks (Gold Jacket, Green Jacket, who gives a s...) then nothing will need to fully tuck. If it were being lowered, then it matters.
