M017 front poke

Just got my M017's installed, 20x10 with 285/30/20 on the front, backs are staggered; 20x11 305/30/20.

The back wheels seem good but the front does have a bit of poke and was wondering how I can make this more flush, if possible:

Only solutions I can think of are more camber, or having someone roll your fenders. Not sure of any other way to do it. You can also install the fender flares from the corvette but it's not a good solution unless you're mainly using your car on the track.

How much of a gap do you have between the wheel and the strut? You could probably get away with a different offset that would put the tires closer to the strut.

Yeah, I did see the flare option, but really don't want to go that route. I just bought these wheels so I can't get something else for a while. I guess I just wanted to see if that is typical for the MRR M017 wheels on non-1le/mag Camaros.

It's a shame MRR doesn't make a 9" rim. A nice front tire compromise would be a 255/35/20 or 265/35/20 on a 9" rim. From a purely aesthetic prospective, I think a 10" rim is just too wide for the front of a LT1/SS, but I know a lot of other guys like the look of a 285 in the front. I'm probably going to go with a 275/35/20 on the front of a 10" MRR 1LE rim, but if they made a 9" rim I would go with something a little narrower.

Now that I have it on I agree, it is a bit wide. I don't hate it but it does draw my attention to the overhang a bit. I guess I really didn't notice it from the pictures that I saw with these wheels. Oh well, when they are due for replacement I'll drop it to a 275, I'm guessing a 265 would be a bit thin on the 10 inch rim.

I have the exact same wheels and tires (size) and I am an SS non-1LE with Mag Ride and I have the exact same amount of poke that you do...

Ah, I see. Very interesting as well with the 1le vs your front poke. I guess it is something we will have to live with, oh well. The wheels still look awesome and the grip is a lot better.

I agree, in theory, with a -23 offset (vs. the OEM 1LE front offset of -20) we should actually be 3mm in further than OEM wheels, I'n guessing there is some kind of rotor tophat/brake assembly/struct difference that make the non-1LE have a bit more poke (probably compensating for the standard 8.5" wheels)...

Yeah would seem so, since you have mag and have the same poke. Would be good to know what the difference here would be!

the factory 1LE wheels are the same. My front tires on my 1LE have a tiny bit of poke just like that and rear is flush. So I guess they tried to mimic the same setup as factory

This has always annoyed me a bit as it just helps the car throw more road debris at itself. I wish they woulda made them flush like the rear.
