Percys Tire fitment tool

Does anyone in SoCal have one of these that I can borrow or buy second hand? I've seen too many people get stuck on the wrong back space rims etc. Thanks

I have the Percys tool. It is plastic but it works well. It is a small box so if you would like to use it let me know.

Sorry to ask off topic question. I got the Percy tool to measer my 63 8 seater with 4 link. According to the tool. I'm able to put a 18x9 in the rear. Not tubed. I have about 1/4 of space between the inner and outer fender wells. Is that enough space. Or should I give it a little more?

Is 1/4 inch good enough. Or should it be more?
