Does 3/4” really matter?

I am in need of some new wheel tubs for my ’68 convertible. My question is are the Detroit Speed DSE tubs the best option out there with their 2-3/4” width? I see there are other complete wheel well housings available that give you 2” more width but they include the inner and outer wheel well for a similar price. I‘d like to run a wider tire but do not plan on running drag radials or anything like that. I’m more interested in ease of install and quality of the sheet metal. Since I need both inner and outer wheels wells I wonder if I can save a couple of bucks going with a different brand. So I would appreciate your guys thoughts or other options y’all might prefer. Thanks.

DSE tub, next the the stock one I cut out of my 68.
I have about an 3/4"~1" on each side of my 315 tires. You need some room for the tire move around some over uneven ground when 1 tire goes up, and the other down.
