    I'm pretty sure John Bzdel has 9.5 wide fronts on his LS7 powered 87 SS.

    Just checked http://www.ls7montess.com/ and found he has 8.5" wide fronts with 275 width tires. I have that width tires on the back on a 9.5" wide wheel.

    I have 9.5 out fron and 10.5 in the rear....the front rub a lil bit b/c I have the front lowered alot. I am currently making new inner fenders. I could probably just raise up the inner fenders too but I want to make my own.

    Marc @ SC&C did mine back in 2006. I am confident enough now with welding and all that I know I can do it.
