More offset than tires... the wheels are pretty much flush to the fenders. Anyone have antispacers?

I'm not to crazy about the amount of sidewall, but for now it's gotta do.

No, I get Reinhart next door to do them. I was pleasantly surprised that they all balanced almost perfectly even with all the grinding on the rims I did!

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

Do you raise the car first? There is ~ 1/2" clearance to shove a bat in presently.

I used a wooden dowel, about 1.25" in diameter. When rolling, the body lifts a bit with all the weight on the dowel. You will need help from a friend for sure.
If you don't want to risk it, try renting one.
