Default Fender to Hub distance (mm) for GC/GF8

Anyone happen to know the fender to hub distance in mm? Wondering if anyone has measured this before or if I'm going to have to eyeball it with a tape measure.

If someone's already gone through this please speak up

This is for GC/GF chassis.

Thanks for any help.

(damnit, should have posted in tire and wheel forum) Mods could you please move thread.

Thanks!

are you asking for axial distance from hub to fender or radial?

both will be dependent on what your ride height is... Axially less so but still worth noting. What's your goal with this question?

Here this should help, distance circled in green.

It's generally not something people measure so looks like I may be the one figuring it out. Just thought I'd run it by nasioc in case someone has checked before.

Well it's longer then my penor. Just sayin....

I say your best bet is to measure yourself. Maybe in the future someone will be looking for the same answer

because that distance will change when you jack the car up to take the wheel off, I would recommend measuring from the face of the wheel. You know the wheel width (or it's easy to measure the actual wheel width) and you know the offset of the wheels along with measuring from the face of the wheel to the fender more easily than hub to fender.

If you're running lots of camber this won't work actually...

but is the goal to determine wheel offsets and widths? Because there is much easier ways to determine fitment.

No variables, it's for a program I have and I'm well aware of the different methods to measure offset and determining wheel widths and fender gap and tire stretch and the effects of camber, caster, toe, etc.

Thanks though. I'll go measure it myself.

Back from the dead post. Did you ever find out that distance?
