I am in the process of getting an M300 with the 6" caster option. They have different forks that will keep the ground clearance the same as that of the 8" casters.
I spoke with Permobil and the forks are different

Could they make the floor lower where you drive to make things somewhat better.
My chair width is wider than the floor mounts. My left tires seat right on the channel pretty much but my rear tires sit past them by the sliding door. I still use my drivers seat also when others need to drive.
