The mini tub will give 2-3", Do the mini tub first then narrow the rear to fit what you have. I had a mini tub on mine by notching and kicking the frame rails in. I was never very happy with it and I am now put in new CE frame rails and will have about 17" I am not planning on using all that space so I will narrow the rearend to suit the look and needs of my car. Oh yea I would also pick the tire rim combo first.

The best way to measure is to get your wheels and tires that you want to run. Put them under the car and measure the distance between them to determine your rear end width.
