Hi, I have a 93 Fleedwood, which I will turn into a lowrider, but
first I want only to lower it and put my 14x7 reverse knockoffs on it. And drive it till I get enough money to install me hydros or airride.
But my problem is that the rimsides in rear are scraping on the
wheelhouse inner side!
Should I cut the innerside a little out to get more space?
Do anyone have other solutions?

DO YOU MEAN THAT THE TIRE IS SCRAPING THE INNER FENDER???
IF SO THEN JUST GRIND THE INNER A LITTLE. IF YOUR "RIM" IS SCRAPIN' THE BRAKE DRUM, THEN GET SOME SPACERS.
HOPE THIS HELPED.

you need to trim the skirt pieces(excess plastic). or you can short your axle(costly). or you can go with 14x6(i wouldn't!!) point being-cut the plastic!

cut the tabs off like this and put the locking handles up as far as you can or cut them down and what size tires are you running

daytons with 175/70 s shouldnt rub with stock suspension

I don't think that the are real Daytons if they are scraping, the offsets on real D's work on them lacs!

I've got real Dayton's on mine and I had to grind down both the plastic tabs AND the tips of the metal latches. It doesn't rub now, but just barely! If I take the driveway a little fast at an angle then the passenger side still scrapes. Also, tire size makes a difference... if I go any wider than 175's then it would still rub.
