Is the inside edge of the front rim hitting on the tie rod end on the steering? This is close on a 17x8" rim with 5 1/2" back space. It'll be even closer with the smaller 15" rim.

The rear should clear. The only thing I can think of that might hit is the spring and this will depend on where your lower shock mount is located.

How about a couple of pics to show what the problem is.

Cheers

To gain additional clearance you could try doing a heim joint conversion and mounting the rod ends on top of the steering arms. I originally did this with plans for 9" wide front rims and to improve the bump steer (rather than dropping the rack).

Hey Uncle Mike.....that's a mighty glossy caliper you have there....what sorta paint is that?

And......

When you gonna get into CAD and build up a file to mill those calipers outta billet aluminium.

Would save about 6kg a wheel I reckon.

Back to the regular programing ....

Hey Les...............

What gets me is how bloody shiny Mike's bits are - obviously hasn't been around yet

I think his paint must have been bought in the Valley - You often see quite a bit of red around there
