Jeremy, the axles won't need to be narrowed, as the hub will stay in the same spot. My center section will stay the same, but I'll have new (inner) barrels, and lips. It's just like when guys have their wheels widened but I won't have some jank ass welded stock wheels, and I can go outward too.

Oh4, why would I need new toe rods?

Thomas's narrowed control arms move the entire hub inside by one inch. Because of that new axles and toe rods are needed. I spoke to him about this already. This would allow us to run a pretty nice lip.

EDIT: Of course, that happened with the tire. So not a concern where the tires do not extend past the lips of the wheel on either side.

Define wide. Also, think about adding inches to the inside of the wheel. Once you get to a certain point, that wheel starts running into the control arm in the location below (this is all post mini tub of-course).

I agree; what I'm saying is that in my experience, as you go farther in/wider, you encounter the wheel well before you encounter the control arm.

This has been my experience, at least. Camber matters in this regard, too.

Oh, a tub is planned along with these wheel modifications. I know all about inner clearances. I'm running 285's on a 10" wheel and am quite low, while having a fair bit of power to squat and twist the rear when launching.


Oh4GTO, thanks for the heads up. I wasn't aware that Thomas' arms relocated the hub. Looks like Chris' are the obvious choice now.

Check. I knew you couldn't be that stupid. After all, you do have a Procharged MBM.

Ya I know you know your wheel stuff. I'd still like to see the LM5's on your car.

Ideally so would I. I want them pretty bad. I just doubt I'd get a decent dollar for my current wheels on here. They're pretty well GTO specific too, so the market is pretty small. With the rear end and trans plans, I can't just keep throwing money away with this thing. Lol

Would I be stupid if I no longer had a Procharged MBM?

We can run a 325/50/15 with our a arm and get a full tuck,no joe dirt here

We build them 3 different ways,it looks better if you bring the hub in an inch but we build stock widths as well.

My main concern with moving the hub is the exact location of it after it's moved. I know my clearances now and can base things off of what I have now and have been working with for years. Shit's going to be down to within a few mm's, so starting out with an entirely new location isn't really appealing to me.

As it is I'll have a 3.5" lip, and when compared to the front I wouldn't really want more than that anyway.

For curiosity's sake. Do you have an exact location that it is moved in to?

Not a huge fan of the 5 spoke look on our cars. But the stance? Yeah, I just rubbed one out that shaite looks so good.
