If that person runs a 10" wide tire on an 8" wide wheel with that 5.75 inch bs he deserves to cut up his tires and buy a new set that fit.
He has a backspace of 5.75 inches. Plus 1/2 inch added to that for the tire equals 6.25 inches. His available space from the wheel mounting...
235mm isn't tread width. It's cross section.
Here's a much better way to figure out what wheel/tire combo fits without reordering at all. Do it...

On a 6 inch rim. On an 8 inch it's 10"
1/4 inch isn't enough!
And we do go away when we get tired of...

Your heat riser is working right. It takes a couple minutes to warm the intake. If it wasn't working right you'd have major surging, backfiring...
It pulses until your intake warms up. Your cold intake causes the vaporized fuel to revert back to a liquid. You're getting a lean surge. If it...
So is that the manifold vacuum source for the pcv?
Pcv goes in the pan or a valve cover. Not in the intake. Intake supplies manifold vacuum source.
Pcv in the intake or in the pan? Can't tell from your pic.
What type of suspension?
If you're having a hard time getting into 2nd but not 3rd look for interference of the linkage rod on the emergency brake hardware that's usually...
You gotta know for sure. With a 6" wide rim (7 inches from lip to lip) you're safely limited to a 215 70 tire.
