Careful though. Whats your wheel offset like? (tire to fender line-up?)

wheel offset

It's a 1996 S10 pickup.
The outer rim of the wheel is about 2" in from the fender, as viewed from the top, less if viewed from the side, as the vehicle body tapers in as we descend. I hope I have understood "offset" correctly.

With the dish in, the air only has to go over half a ridge, and it winds up about level with the tire sidewall. That will be closer to optimum.

inny/outy ?

We'll have to make sure we're all defining "dish in" and "dish out" in the same way. When I say "dished in", I mean the center portion of the pizza pan is lower, or nearer to the hub of the wheel. When I say "dished out", I mean one is looking at what would be the bottom of the pizza pan (when it is installed on the whee). The center of the pan/hub-cap is further away from the hub of the wheel, like on the photo of the car a few posts ago. Have I got the terms right, or backwards? And are we all on the same page?

source for pizza pans

I just bought 4 16" aluminum pizza pans from Russell Foods in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, in case anyone is looking. They were about $6 a piece. They also had 15" and a size around 12 or 13".

My thought was this: If your wheels/tires sit well inside the fender, then it makes more sense to have the dish out. This is the case with the VW above. This way you are keeping closer to a flush wheel and fender situation. However if your wheels/tires extended past the outer edge of the fender at all, dished IN would definitely be better, so that you are not adding any more frontal area.

Sounds like you should probably dish em outwards.
