I'll have to do that too. I was just more focused in illustrating the front for clearance purposes. It's wide open in the back! I think that's what gives the illusion that it needs wider spacers than the front. I noticed that the higher the QL setting, the more exaggerated the wheels look tucked in. Now that I say that, I think maybe the geometry does change, the wheels probably do come inboard a bit. That would kinda make sense. Would need to measure to confirm that.
As for the new tires, I love the way they look but can't speak much to performance as I haven't really tested them out. I can say they are slightly louder than the stock Michelins but that stands to reason as they are fairly aggressive ATs. They're not loud by any means but they're not silent either. I am enjoying the firmer, more responsive ride for sure.
There is no clearance issue other than at wheel lock, the tire just kisses the felt lining on the inside of the front wheel wells. So far it has been very minor. I think wheel spacers will resolve the issue. 1.5's or 1.25's coming soon!
