Re: Tire, wheel, and axle set on DSE mini tubs
Everything that Patrick said with a couple of additions.
Be sure whatever wheels you like clear whatever calipers you like.
If you are swapping out your rear try to understand ahead of time your suspension mounting points relative to your brake mounting points.
I was in your shoes a little while ago. There isnít anywhere you can find dimensions you can guarantee will match up to your car especially if you intend to stuff the wheelwell.
I made a fixture to hold wheels apart and concentric.
I put an old pair of L60ís on cragars I had on the fixture and, on a pair of motorcycle jacks put them up in the wheel wells to see what could fit
Picked wheels, tires, rear, and brakes and got comfortable that it would work.
Got the wheels and tires
Put them on the fixture, on the jacks, centered them, and then measured the mounting distance.
Got the rear and brakes.
The tire setup centered really well. I did mess up a little by not realizing the panhard bar mount was gonna kiss the caliper setup pretty hard but that was an easy tweak.
I think the fixture was overkill and I could have gotten to the same place with some care. I think there are pics in my build thread though I havenít been too good at keeping that up.
