New Wheel wells
So how much clearance is needed above the tires? A bit of a limited audience for this question I know but I was looking at the huge wheel wells and the limited movement available to the axles and wondered why there is so much space? Without measuring much there's probably 8" of space above the tires and only about 3 1/2" space above the axles before they hit the chassis.
For my little project which is initially a new chassis, wheel wells, axles, rims and tires etc I figured I could cut down on the extra space a bit. I know campgrounds might have a bit of mud now and then but how much space do you think would be sensible to design in given that everything is changeable?
I'm also curious about using thick, maybe 1/8" aluminum, rather than galvanized tin but maybe that'll end up being another thread.
