The Mk III provides for a 315 wide tire. Meaning there is more space between the fender and the frame.Still require 2.5" per side narrowed rear axle assembly."
Larry, is this true for the MKIII chassis also?
So, with the extra 1" clear at the fender, to clear the 3.5" backspace pin drive (3.125" effective backspace with 3/8" thick adapter) the Fox width rear would only need to be narrowed 1.5" per side instead of the conventional 2.5" as on the Mk II and Mk I bodies.Wider rear body flare (1”) and narrowed steel frame to allow 315/17 tires OR 295/50/15 tires
Yes, Richrad, you are right. The difference between 70.5" Mark II and 71.125" Mark III fender width on a Mark II is more like 5/8" total or 5/16" per side. Hardly enough to get excited about. So we leave the 2.5" narrowing the same for Mk I, Mk II, and Mk III.This is not correct numbers.
