Man I'm glad you asked this question...I had the wheel spec wrong in the video. (i was confusing these wheels with wheels from another project) Anyways... the correct wheel spec is 8 1/2 inch wide on the front with 30 offset and the rears are 10" wide with a 30 offset. 17s all around.

Long time owner from 20yrs ago returning to this platform, so here come the dumb questions Are people adding in camber for tire clearance or handling reasons?

All the fenders are already rolled... I hate excessive camber.

Mostly tire clearance and aesthetics. Very few do it for handling.
