15x10 with 245s - no rubbing (pics included)

Hi,

 

On my 280zx I have 15x10 4.5 BS with 245 Maxxis VR-1 tires. I have about a pen clearance between strut and wheel on the fronts.

 

No rubbing so far, sure it sticks out like crazy. These are the wheels I got, https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Bassett-50ST4B-15X10-D-Hole-Lite-4-on-4-5-4-Inch-BS-Black-Beaded-Wheel,72130.html

Looks cool!  I'm currently looking to do a very similar rim setup (deep dish steel rims with wide tires) on my 280zx.  I'm also thinking about 10 inch rims on the rear but I don't have the balls to go outside the fender lol.  Do you think a ten inch rim with 5.5 inch backspacing would fit under the fender/not rub inside?  Just thinking for the rears, I'll go smaller on the front as I'd like to be able to still turn the wheel lol!

 

Thanks!

-Jim

There is about four fingers between the strut and the wheel in the rear, about one finger in the front.

 

I don't get any rubbing but my car is lowered and the fenders are all banged up from "incidents" on the race track. Maybe they will rub in on a stock car, don't know.
