Yes, he'd have to run spacers if they were 9 et36 up front. (unless he has some crazy high-clearance struts )

For what offset and tire size? Should be plenty of clearance in the rear for 8s.

This is making a strong case for CC my Roadster. I wish they would release the Blacklines already.

as far as I know he's german! I'm Italian!
