Guys with an Aggressive Rear Offset: Come on in...

Have you noticed the lower part of your rear fender (behind the tire) getting chewed up?

I washed my car this passed weekend and I've have my wheels on for about 2 weeks, the fender is gonna be chewed to sh*t.

I will post pics later.

p.s. Wheel width and offset - 10.5 +25

I can't belive this car is a 4 door family sedan.

interesting- that rear tire setup is basically the equivalent of a stock wheel with an 11mm spacer added... It should not be rubbing unless you are running a 295+ mm tire width..... It must be rubbing on the very inside near the strut/spring....

My wheels stick out 3mm further than yours and my fenders are still happy....

Id like to see pics!!

You can always go with a thinner rear tire or run a 3mm spacer to get a little more clearance....

Rubbing isnt the problem. Its the road debris getting kicked into the lower corner of my rear fender. I have a few chips on both sides already.
