Side Exhaust

Has anyone ran the exhaust for a diesel out the side before the rear wheels.
Ive done this a lot on road race cars. But have concerns about heating up the
rear tire while towing .

The only problems I have seen doing this is turning your rim black with soot if your truck smokes a lot, it sure takes a lot of work out a project doing it that way!

I have mine done that way. I like the look but it sucks cleaning the tire and rim. I plan on changing my to behind the tire again this spring.
