On the SH... 2009, 2020 models, it looks like the the main obstacle to larger diameter tires is the fronal skirting/trim of the rear wheel wells. Just plastic trim shrouding.

Has anyone modded this to allow for larger diameter tires?

I did some investigating myself...

If you take off the liner, bang that pinchweld up or down, and leave off the liner you could make something bigger fit.

even if you cut off the boxy ubstruction the liner does limit the max wheel size too. If I do go bigger, I will take off the liner, mod the weld and then just use a couple cans of rubberized undercoating to protect and sound deaden the wheel wells:icon_biggrin:
