English? Do you speak it?

Are you saying the car is dropped 1.5". and you have an inch gap between the fenders and the tires? Or the tires sit in about an inch?

You wouldn't want to add too much maybe a 7mm to 15mm spacer, Both are well under an inch.

I think 7 is the max I would go because of the space between the fender and the hell I dont think it would rub but 15mm would be to much poke I'll try to get a picture of a tape measure and the spacing in my free time<3333333

This doesn't do much justice. Try a different angle along with a tape measure so we have an idea of how much space your trying to fill.
