It sits about 1 inch higher in the back. Factory the tires are 18 inch and run a bit smaller. New tires are 20 inch and are more like 19.5 inches. I just shortened the axle tube on the rims about 5/16 of an inch if I remember correctly. I did it a couple on months ago. Chucked the rims in a large lathe and cut the outside down until the tube was the same length at the 70 wheels. If I get a chance later I will add some side views. Roger
I think the pan makes it look a bit more like a RF. The only reason I used the 185 wheels is I had them, they are the same basic size and wanted to keep the original tires and wheels for snow use in the winter. Roger
