Here's a shot of the drive side. Probably could get away with less crimping even than this, but it's not an exact science. This photo exaggerates how close the tire is to the fender - there's actually about 3mm of clearance still. If you are worried about clearance, the WTB Horizons are a smidge less plump than the Switchback Hills, which seem to end up closer to 50mm once they've settled in.

Also now you can see that my bottom bracket bearing costs half what the frame does - the secret is out!

Awesome, thanks for sharing that! I’m assuming you just used some pliers and did your thing until the fender fit. Do you think there would be any advantage/disadvantage to cutting the fender rather than crimping?
