Is that why my '91's front wheels are so close to the front of the fender opening?

Re: Widest rim/tires on Daytona?

So, does every '91 have cast arms and are they tight on fender clearance?
How much of a difference would it be as far as where the wheels would sit.

Correct Pauly, the 89-90 Daytonas have the stamped arms and the wheels are more centered in the wells. The 91s had the cast arms that moved the wheels forward in the wells with the 91 fenders. They changed the 92-93s to make up for this difference.....

Every 91+ Daytona had cast arms like I said above after the 92-93 fender change it made them look more center. Using 89-90 arms on a 92-93 Daytona would make them sit more rear than center of the wells. Hope that makes sense lol

Re: Widest rim/tires on Daytona?

I have also seen a '91 where the controls arms "slipped" out of the suspension bushings a bit towards the front of the car, making the phenomenon even worse.

But that car has somewhere around 300,000 miles on it and the odometer quit somewhere around 223,000 several years ago. The woman who owns it doesn't maintain it at all. I replaced the engine over a year ago and with that replacement engine, she STILL has not changed the oil. She says it is because of financial difficulties. But there's plenty of $$$ for doggy day care!
