Coddington Junk Yard Dog

A question which has probably been asked before: what modifications, if any, are required to run the Coddington Junk Yard Dog 17x10 wheel on the rear of an MN12? I have run Cobra R replica 17 x 9 wheels on the street for some years with no issue, but my widened 16x9 drag wheel just barely clears the parking brake cable.

Good idea! Brad said using the 17" x 10" JYDs requires the parking brake cable to be zip-tied away from the inner corner of the rim. Also requires rear air bags or rolled fender lips (I have both) to avoid rubbing.

I'm a little surprised these wheels have not been more popular on MN12s. Have seen a few cars with Coddington's Smoothie IIs, but can't think of one with Junk Yard Dogs on it.
