Yeah they have 315/35/r17 i bought the car with them on there. They have some aftermarket BBKSub shocks they’re not the stock ones i know that. And i was told take a hammer to the inner most prt of the wheel well also.
Ok! First thread view (thoughts of) content with
315/35 Nitros on 17” Bullitt’s shoehorned in (and actively self-machining) the stock well’s.. was ..
Good to know it’s a normal -bit misguided- but normal-scenario involving a tunnel-visioned newbie..
—>It’s really not bad...the mid 80’s, Airshocks & Unilug’s. THAT was BAD...
As every car’s a little different, some wells require more “Finesse”, some less..Quad Shocks need be removed, Roll out your 1/4’s.
Job can still be neatly done with a BFH, small hydraulic ram if you have a kit.
Quick reference points, below, Stock Vs. new.
Tire aspect ratio is off, not enough to worry about.
(225/55/16) (315/35/17) W/Aspect Ratio/Rim Dia

30Mph. 29.93Mph. Corrected
65mph. 64.84. Corrected

As I’d mentioned, Miter the tailpipe to get it out of the way. Mark pipe, remove, diegrinder cut, bend & tack, verify fit & adjust, weld solid, reinstall.
Otherwise, should be all set, once wells are clear & test driven, spray the wells with rubberized undercoating, It’s all good.
Any questions, feel fre.
