I've been asking him for pics of the front tire/fender but still cant get any:huh:
I'll see if I can find it for you. Funny, I've asked you for measurements from ground to fender flare and overall tire diameter according to your measuring device on yours and haven't heard anything? :huh:

damn that thing is low. I wonder why my wheels have to stick out so much further when we both have the same brake/wheel combo.

He's got the GSM kit on his I believe (or at least he did in that picture), different mounting brackets maybe have the caliper positioned slightly differently? I realize the rotor mounted on the hub will determine where the caliper must sit but...consider the entire spindle is different, maybe that has something to do with it? How much further do you think your tires stick out? I don't think mine is terribly different than this picture and my rim is 1" wider so I don't know what to tell you.

mine seem to stick out quite a bit further. I have alot of room between my wheels and the calipers so I could have my spacers turned.

what size tire is that? i'm gonna get some R/T 20's off Ebay as soon as my Federal check gets here :D
their 20's

I'm running the same size tire up front, but my suspension isn't as low as his - haven't had any problems with the tires at all.

I sold him that hood a long time ago, I think it was 2002. Until the SRT-10 hood came out, it was my favorite. IIRC he forgot to latch the hood a couple of years later and it flew up on him, decided to install the pins because of the damage, rather than replace the hood.

My buddy at the wheel shop used to take his wheels in to a machine shop and have the mounting surface of his wheels machined down so they didnt stick out so far, just a suggestion:huh:
