The R888Rs caught my **** fender though (I didn't roll the fender far enough toward the front of the car). It pulled that inner fender lip out some and put a nice gouge in the tire but luckily not deep enough to be unsafe.

Re: AFS Mach 1 wheels coming back!

I had a set of those deep dish afs back in the day. Always ran 315-35-17 tires, but I also rolled my fenders and coated them first. Had a brand new goodyear eagle f1 gsd3 get it's sidewall slashed on my old 360R because of this. Car was barely even lowered. Here it is in a family members showroom where it has lived for the past 15yrs..

Re: AFS Mach 1 wheels coming back!

This pic is with cut stock springs (had an 04 IRS at the time) and the deep dish/ 315 combo. It never cut a tire down thanks to the fender rolling. Back in ~2011.

i currently have steeda sport springs with some adjustable shocks/struts, they may have been on the loose side when I cut my Toyo. My fenders were rolled like yours, it wasn't far enough around toward the front

Mine is actually on 18s with 305-35 now. It'll scuff the top of the shoulder transitioning some driveways etc at funky angles, but luckily has still not put a cut into a tire. I don't remember it ever making contact with the deep dish/315 combo. Which makes sense with the overall wheel/tire diameter being greater with the 18s w/305-35 versus the 17s w/315-35 by .72 inch.

What were you doing when it happened?

Mind weighing one when you get them? I never did and have been curious ever since. I think a stock 17x8 comes in around 26lbs?

Re: AFS Mach 1 wheels coming back!

For anyone wanting to figure out which size tire to go with, here's a list of estimated tire heights. I calculated it using Tire Width (mm) X Aspect Ratio divided by 25.4 (to convert to inches) X 2 (for both sidewalls) + wheel diameter = Estimated Tire Height. Please note that this list will get you in the ballpark since every tire brand is slightly different.

245/45-17 = 25.68 (Stock Tire Size)
275/40-17 = 25.66
315/35-17 = 25.68

265/35-18 = 25.30
265/40-18 = 26.34
275/35-18 = 25.57
275/40-18 = 26.66
295/30-18 = 24.96
295/35-18 = 26.13
305/30-18 = 25.20
305/35-18 = 26.41
315/30-18 = 25.44
