I have seen pics of many 7 even 7.5 inch rims tucked under the feder lips. Most say they have about a 45 mm offset with some minor bending. I just pust a set of 15 x7 45 offset and they stick out at least an inch past the outside of the fender. From the bottom the 205 50's look to be less than 5 mm from the inner wall. <br><br>Even if I bought 195 45's and shaved the back of the rim a few mm I still wouldn't come close.<br>How the he@#%!@# are people doing it?<br> <p></p><i></i>
