I have some trouble here can you guys plz help me out, i copied the same tire and put in the rear to see how it look but something is wrong, the wheel arch is good it follows the print curve perfectly ,but as you can see on the pic the rear arch hides the top of the tire i mean its too low on the rear tire, the rear tire shouldnt be smaller right?

Looks right to me. That is why people get springs that give the car the "raked" look, so the gaps will match up better.

Dude that is unreal. As a fellow 3D modeler I can appreciate the determination and skill that you need to create something like that. Great work.
