Hi,

You may have to get the guards flared / trimmed. Panels are quite cheap now, you could have a 2nd set of guards and have the originals to go back on. Keep in mind spacers are not legal, and if a wheel comes off it may just be the start of your problems.

I have lowest pedder's suspension (grey springs on sportsryder shocks) and I have rolled my guards... I am on 17x8 ROH Drift R rims... I think 40mm HD conduit was the ideal size for my guards... Watch the youtube videos for rolling your own guards... And don't do that... I had no issues but... Still get the occasional tiny bit of scrapping at full lock depending how the suspension is sitting (ideal drive ways and the sort... But as of yet I have never had the tire grab a guard and rip it down...

Cheers,
Tim
