Re: Max tire height

Hi All! has anyone figured out what the MAX tire height is if using the standard front & rear suspension on our '33 Hot Rods? I found several 'calculators' on the internet that will give me overall tire weight with different sized tires & diameter wheels, but was wondering just what the actual, real-world max height is before the tire will hit the body or chassis? I ordered the Bike Fenders with my kit but not sure yet if I will be using them or if I need to get WIDER fenders! (guess that will depend on the tires I finally decide to use)
Thanks a bunch!!!

What's a bit confusing is that the rims FFR sells online for the 33 have a recommended tire size of 305/35 18 which are 26.4 tall

I would be those have been offered since before the fenders were available, or the fender option isn't used much and that wheel/tire combo fills up the wheel well better without them.
