Default Re: Spare Tire fender Well

Wider wheel wells are very problematic as they consume the width of the fender.
What you have to do is split (or make) a wheel well. It is important to know exactly where the center of the tire will end up so that it will center where the well will go.

I guess one could "assume" where it goes by just splitting the distance on the 19" measurement but we know where that gets one. A 16" tire and wheel may not end up equidistant as the 19".
I would cut the splash where the arm will come out, install the arm, mount a wheel with no tire and try to determine centering.
I do 19" wheel wells all the time but not 16" A buddy of mine did one and, as noted above, it really took the width out of the fender; I do not remember what it did to the bead edge.
