    It looks like what they consider fitting isn't that at all. Maybe its the angle, but i'm pretty sure it hangs out a bit.

    When I had the wheel manufacture measure the wheel well depth, he told me it was not possible to put 11" due to rear clearance. I am pretty sure if you look closer at the car the rims would stick out .25-.5"

    Fitment is all about what you want in the look. While that wheel fits notice that the rear tires are stretched on the wheels and there is a bit of wheel "poke" where the lip of the wheel sticks out from the fender. My guess is that they are running a 265/35 or 30 in the rear streatched on a 11" wide wheel.

    Looks damn good to me but not a super practical fitment.
