More than 1.5in that's for sure. Tires are just hidden nicely behind fenders.

Are you running 10" wheels front and rear, and what size tires front and rear?

how do you find the 275 fitment? Do they seem "stretched" at all?

P.S. Looks nice!

Depends on the brand of tires.
Falkens would look the most "stretched" and curved sidewall.

With such an aggressive offset and width, it is not recommended to get a very straight sidewall tire such as Yokohama, Bridgestone, Michelin, Pirelli etc.

I am using Toyo's.

Thanks for the update. Where are you located anyway? It looks like the steering wheel is on the left side (squinting at the picture)...so I'm guessing not the UK? You should update your location so we know where you're from. :)

Such a good point.

It's basically a trade off to have the wheels pushed out that much more but have a bit of a stretch with the Toyos.

We have the exact same setup, but I have been pondering purchasing two 9" fronts and then running 255 front and 295 rears.

Maybe our offsets are different than your LS5s...

Is your setup rubbing in the front or are the HR coils getting in your way of lowering the front end even more?

The fronts on mine do not sit as flush with the fenders as my rears, which works out for me I guess, and is at a height I love without sacrificing turn-ability and maneuverability.

I'd go 9.5 with a better offset instead of 9s...narrow wheels don't give me a hard-on. hahaha.

No rubbing or issues with ride height. Just want to go wider in the back and get rid of the semi-stretch look.

Narrower in the back!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

My Toyo's don't look stretched, just a subtly curved sidewall. Are you rolling on Falkens Sizzle?
