Pictures of MM K-Member w/ Offset Geometry vs standard geometry

I'm looking for pictures of a car with the Offset geometry setup vs the standard geometry ...

Are there any clearance issues after installing an off-set setup? Fender rolling? Chopping the fender and putting on flares?

I have pix of the forward offset on my 93. There was some fender liner trimming, some rolling, and a little bit of flaring. My car also has 17x9 03 Cobras all the way around. It's not difficult work, and worth it, IMO, once you're done

Offset with a 17x8.5 29mm wheel and a 245/45 555 tires.


Had to trim the fender liners, but other than that it fits fine.

Looking at your sig you are doing this to a SN95. You will a good bit more room compared to a Fox 3.

Mine is hiding from the rain in the garage.. Afraid it might melt if it gets dirty..

Or the grime and generally nastyness of the car will wash off and it'll fall apart


but I ment an SN95 with the K member and Offset arms

My car was my daily driver for about 1.5 years w/ the K-member setup. I was running 245/45/17 Bullitt rims. February 2008 I put the 03 Cobras on w/ 275/40/17s all around. It was a daily driver for about 3 months...and then I bought a BMW

Now it's the occasional weekend driver and open track abuse machine

I'm running 275x40x17s on 10.5s up front with a 3/4" spacer to clear the coil-overs and have significant rubbing on the fender and bumper cover. But the car is very low. If I raised it a little, I could probably run a 1/2" spacer and it wouldnt rub as much. Also with a 17x9 wheel, I can run a 1/2" spacer and it doesnt rub on the fender at all, but does on the bumper cover.

Its kinda hard to see the offset in the picture because the car is moving, but here one is:
