      69 Camaro narrow Axle width measurments

      I am trying to nail down my axle measurements. I feel like I am really close to making a decision. I have already made the order; they are just waiting on wms measurments.
      1969 Camaro, Mini tubbed (Will be, fab has been pushed back 3 months which is why I can get the tires in all the way for a perfect measurement), 325/30/19 11" wheels 5.5 BS, Ride-tech 4 link. DSE suggestion is basically 54.75 but that i based on a 12" wheel with 5.5 BS. I am coming up with 57" wms-wms which puts the tire right at the inner fender lip. I do not want the tires tucked in the wheel wells, rather them closer to outer lip. IS THIS COMMON OR ACCEPTABLE? lol I know it's a stupid question but I just want to make sure I'm thinking correctly before i send the wms measurement into the QP so they can complete my order. Here are a few pics for reference, Any help is appricated. Thanks Michael

      Are you moving the leafs in? will the tires clear as is? If you want the tire flush with the outer lip, you better add an inch or so of ride height with good bump stops to prevent the tire from making contacting with the quarter panel.

      Removing leafs. adding 4 link. Tires will not fit as of now until mini tubs are installed. I really curious to know if other builders put their tires in this location or do they always tuck behind the fender lip.

      Where your tire is placed, the car is not drivable, especially at the ride height. Everyone tucks their tires if they dont want a monster truck ride height protouring car haha.

      I know 68 & 69 are a little different but, On my 68 I went with the 325-30-19's on 19x12's with 5.75BS. 54.75 axle face to axle face.
