The extra inch of outer lip was already achieved by widening the wheels to the 9 inches AND having the backspace at 6.75". I did not have to make any other alterations to the wheels, as the 30 MM spacers push the wheels outward the correct amount.
I DID consider it, but i felt like i needed the extra lip in order to give the center part of the wheel more DEPTH. Due to the 30MM spacers, the wheel centers on the front stick out 1 1/4 inch more than the rear centers.
Also, one of the reasons i've always liked the old school steelie look is the lips on the rims. This is especially noticeable since i'm using body colored wheels, which i want to highlight.
Hope i was able to explain clearly.
