Default How big of a wheel?

How wide of a wheel can one fit on a bug eye without modification? Is it recommended to roll the fenders to get that extra half inch or so?

What are you using the car for? How wide a tire are you running and why?

These are the kind of questions you should be asking yourself instead of just how big you can cram under there.

It really depends on the individual wheel, tire and suspension setup...but you would be very hard pressed to get something bigger than 9 actually under the fenders in the back...after that they are going to poke, rub and do all sorts of things.

Realize that you are not the first person to ask this question and there are literally thousands of posts on the subject....when you have a more specific answer to ask, the answer will be easily found.
