Most people lift their vehicles the proper amount to clear larger tires and wider wheels. Spacers are unsafe but I'm not trying to start that debate.I thought spacers would help it with bringing the rim out further allowing for more clearance? Isn’t that what most people do with spacers besides the aggressive look it gives?
They do give clearance when the fender is trimmed. The shape of the fender flare is more open allowing for more turning radius...i.e. ........what you are looking for. Then the flare acts as a cover to make it look better or like nothing was trimmed.The fenders are just bushwackers. They don’t require any cutting just removal of the oem flares. They don’t give any more clearance from what I’ve read. I do see his front bumper missing the lower fisca. Maybe that’s how he got it to work.
I honestly think you need to read up on how wheel offset works. You bought wheels that sit about 100mm (3.9 inches) further outward than stock, and you think adding spacers would make it better? I don't want to be the first one to say "I told you so" when your spacers arrive and exacerbate the rubbing problem.I think you’re the first person I heard say spacers will make it worse and from what I’ve read. Lol but okay. Thanks for the input man. Hopefully I get something figured out
Bushwacker or not....it's common practice to cover fender cuts with flares. Some flares require cutting and some dont. Its based on the vehicle. Flares do not give you added clearance. They are just make up on the pig lol. Some people will buy flares designed for other vehicles because they like the shape. Then cut to that shape.What I’m saying is what he has is the version from bushwacker specifically. Their version for the wk2 is stricktly for looks. It’s doesnt actually give you any clearance, doesn’t require any cutting. But yes I know what they’re for.
I haven’t seen any actually fender flares that you cut out for the wk2 have you?
Also, yes that’s my last step is to contact maybe hostile or just mr.wheel deal to see if I can exchange them for 20x9 0 offset in the same version. I’m in love with these wheels lol
