Yeah, it was for the tires sticking out, I guess. It's a bit vague and not specified what's required to fix it. He mentioned rocks being kicked up. The cop was being friendly, I think CHP has been repurposed as a revenue generating agency since the politicians somehow can't manage to keep a budget despite one of the highest state tax rates in the country.
It's not rubbing now as far as I know, but that's with the too-wide wheels and not much backspacing. I've been trying to find out for sure what will rub before we spend money. I did figure out that 4.5" of backspacing on 15x8 would fit under 6" flares - but I'm just going by a tape measure, graph paper drawings, and math, heh. But then, I was told that this setup would rub. Not specified where/how it would rub.
Would adjusting those stops affect the turning radius much?
I don't have any idea if the axle has been centered. I just went out with the tape measure and it seems maybe it's not centered. Looks like the front axle sticks out further on the driver's side a slight amount, like 1/4 to 1/2 inch. I could be wrong, trying to eyeball the fender line-up with a flashlight.
With all this, I've wondered if maybe all it takes to fix is some removable mud flaps? There again, vague legalese.
