You are my muthafucin hero. I believ sectioning the fenders is gonna work from what I can tell. I think it'll be more subtle than I previously thought.

**WARNING: OPINION BEING STATED**

Just because an S10 doesn't look bad with a 1/2" section doesn't mean a fullsize is going to look good with a 2" section. Personally I think it will look like poo with sectioned fenders. And the truck is not set up to run on 24's or 26's if it doesn't fit under the STOCK hood and fenders....period. Why don't you just detail the front end out and roll with no hood. That will look better than sectioning the fenders.

Once again, this was just my opinion. You can take it or leave it.

We now retrun to your regularly scheduled thread.

Later
Chad

it seems you did some fantastic work on the truck, with good ideas...and then you went ahead and cut the front fenders. i woulda just ran a smaller tire or smaller wheel. then again, that is why the truck in my sig is my own, and the truck in this thread is yours. do what you want with it, bc it is your own. i will hold further judgment until it is finished.

pretty much agree here. You say you sectioned them to fit the 24s with bigger tires because you dont have the funds for the smaller tires...why not have just waited to do it "right" and got the smaller profile tires when the funds were there....like every post in this thread, my .02

I know that to you a smaller profile tire is cheating, but it's just so much cleaner looking than having a hole in the top of your fender. Just checking on tires.com, we've got a 285/30 out there and made which is only an inch taller than a 265/35 22.

Now I'm a bit old school in some ways, so let's talk about when 20's were new and the biggest thing you could run. There was this cat who had 20's on his Toyota and did the same thing to make it work.



Notice the cowled fenders? That's what I picture your truck to look like.

Caprice guys have the same problem. 20's look right on the cars when they lay frame, but they don't fit under a bodydrop. To fix it, one guy did this:



Same thing as the Toyota. Now if you look at both of those trucks, you'll notice a common thread; They both have hoods that are pretty much flat. By wedging them up at the hood, the lines stay relatively natural. Sure it still looks off to me, but it's not that bad.

Now on your truck, the hood goes flat and then rolls down about an inch or two before it meets the grill. If you pivot the hood and fenders off the front like it sounds like you're planning on, then the hood and grill won't be level. You'll have to do a lot more work than you planned.

Ultimately it comes down to time and money. Yes, lower profile tires will set you back $1000 or so, but how many hours will it take to fix the problem and how much is your time worth? Cheating or not, 24's won't fit under the hood of an obs chevy without those low pros.

My shell may not be your taste, but having tires stick above the hood isn't a matter of taste it's just poor design.

He says on page 5 he is setting the truck up for 26's thats why he is mocking up with a big tire. Personally I say to each their own, and let the man build his ride how he wants. Like I've seen said many of times on this site, you are only true judge of what it right for your ride. For him this is it.
