    6 inch B/S maybe a little tight on the inside. I use a 5 inch with a 15X9 wheel.

    So it looks like i might have to get longer studs and some spacers if it doesn't work out? did you have to roil your fenders?

    Yes I rolled the fenders but didn’t cut the lips.

    Ok yeah you have a 9 inch rim which is technically 10 inches wide. I'll have 1 inch less than you so I should be ok depending in yhe tire size and section width

    So i measured again and i am getting 11 inches total from the inside wheel well to the inner fender lip. I figure subtract 1/4 inch each side and that 10.5 inches. I think a 9.5 wheel would fit i know a 9 would with 6.5 inch backspace but that's about it. the 9.5 may have to have the fender lip trimmed or rolled
