So I already picked up my BFG 225/50/15 radials & am now stuck between my wheel choices, I was originally going to pick up Rota Slips but i feel like the look is played out & everyone has them. So I was thinking of picking up these.

I was wondering i you guys think they will clear. I am not worried about having to trim anything. Thanks, chase

15x7 +38 I think will fit pretty dang good. If you haven't already check out my build thread with the new 15x7 +34 I went with. They may stick out a bit but it will give it that nice meaty look, shouldn't be too much different from fwd except you get some camber in the rear which will help with fitment.

15"s will clear 1g stock brakes. They should clear 2g dual-pistons too.

15s clear just about anything. I have 15s for my slicks over the Wilwood / rallyguy brake setup. Those use the GVR4/3000GT rotors.

Fifteens will NOT clear the Baer Big Brake kit that is on my GVR4, but it uses 13" rotors.

It really just depends on the style of the wheel. We use wheel diameter as a generalization and sure rotor clearing guide. I've had 13" wheels clear stock mirage turbo calipers fine (most don't) and on the other hand my 15" wheels clear the oem vr4/dsm dual pistons buy a nut hair.

Yeah I know, I went through that when I had a 240 trying to get things to fit. I am still waiting on my wheels, & now I am dealing with my damn brake booster being in the way of everything.
