Travis, like I said earlier just measure the distance the tire is from the fender lip after you have it rolled. This is the most accurate way to determine what size you need.

Also, there is a company that custom makes hubcentric spacers to whatever size you want. I referenced them in a thread and I know it would be hard to search for. I'll look it up in a bit and get back to you with the company name. I'd suggest doing what I said in the above post and then ordering custom ones.

I'm hoping to get under there and crank up the negative camber and push them as far out as I can.

Keep in mind you'll need to change the toe as well, after you change the camber. Then do your measuring.
