you will for sure need to roll your fenders. No doubt about it.

X2, definitely going to need at least a fender roll to make those babies not rub. I know alot of people say 9.5s are the widest you could go up front, especially in a 24, but you can probably get away with the 10" width on there. Might rub a bit when turned all the way, but shouldnt be anything too serious. I think there's a guy on here with an SRT8 that has 24 x 10s on his ride.... dont know if its lowered or not though. We'll see if he chimes in or not!

Another thing to watch out for, running a 275/25 tire or a 255/30 tire on these wheels wont be the same as most other people. Stretching the tire acorss that extra half an inch flattens em out a little bit more, so ull be riding on even less meat. Watch out for potholes! Best of luck to you, make sure you post pics when you're done!

Just saw your last post... If you go with a 9.5, im pretty sure you can get away without having to roll them.

Only a matter of time before sLOWDOHC chimes in to confirm this one though. I think thats what hes running, and I dont think hes having any problems with em rubbing.

Thanks for the reply man. What if i go 9.5 will that half an inch make a diff. so I wont have to roll em?
with 24's and lowering I am almost certain you will have to roll your fenders no matter how wide they are.

Yea i think i know which one you talkin bout, black srt 8 with 5 spoke 24s on it. Well we will see if i go with the 10s i dont really wanna roll the fenders and now that you say that about the tire too you got me thinkin. I was gonna go 275/25 but that half inch is gonna stretch that thing even more, im gonna have to leave that up to we'll see. More input appreciated

Bro you can go 8.5 on the width and still have to roll the fenders. They might not catch your fenders right away, but they will eventually. I have been rolling on 24x10 for about 37,000 miles on Eibach Pro-kit. I rolled my fenders from day one. I have never had a problem at all.

What is wrong with rolling the fenders? I never understood why people have a hard time with rolling the fenders

exactly, even though an 8.5" wide wheel may not sit flush with the fender, turning will definately be a problem. Rolling your fenders takes no time at all BTW

i have 24x9.5. they havent hit my fenders yet. i think the v6 sits a little higher in the front though. as far as widths i'd get the 275s with 9.5s or 9s. the narrower rim you get. the more the lip will be protected.

How are all you guys saying its so easy to roll the fenders? I keep hearing that the tool you need to do it "properly" is like 200-250 bucks. Or you can go with the baseball bat technique, but this can easily be screwed up as well.

What am I missing thats so easy to do about this? Please let me know as I need to roll my back fenders asap! Thanks!

Mine hit the front.

I know 268 has a problem in the rear of his.

When Im more serious about lowering the car, I will then probably buy the tool. Till then its wasted money.

To me, 255 is way too thin for 9" widths, let alone 9.5 or 10".

Ive also noticed the Wanli 275/25 is quite a bit wider than the Pirelli 275 (like 3/8 -1/2").

I'm probably the guy he is reffering to running 24x10's with 255/30/24 khumo tires
I rolled my fenders and no rub at all.
this guy rents the tool for $50, better then forking out $250.

We need a bit more info. Are you dropped? What tire are you running?
