Snap, I got 16's on 35mm, scrubbage on full lock, scrubbage over major bumps because I havent had the arches rolled yet. :)

Mine's dropped 60 on 15's and i got no scrubbage at all! :insanity: It is cheap and easy to cut arches yourself, but if you want em done properly they ain't gonna be cheap!

Cheers,

Lew.

mine doesn't handle too bad with decent suspension.
the tyres dont catch if you cut the arches right

you see that still isnt that helpful as he wants to know 16's with a 35mm drop, your example with the wrong offset and huge tyres clearly isnt the response he is looking for :lol: :P
