I’m late to the party but if your using the feed rear over quarters, there is no need to cut anything!  Just need a very aggressive roll, which gets the metal fender to meet the Fibreglass over fender.  Much better imo, cutting and welding usually just creates a rust spot.  Not to say it can’t be done right but in this Situation I don’t see the need. I’m currently running 295’s in the rear but I could easily fit 315’s with the right offset wheel.

definitely not too late to the party.  Thanks for the advice.  I have access to a fender roller.  My wheels are 18x10.5 +22 in the rear with a 295 wide tire.  I am on K-sport coilovers also.  Do you have any pictures of the "Aggressive roll" you did so I can have an idea of how far to go?

I checked and I donít have pics of the roll.  I have lots of other pics but not a good pic of the actual roll.  My wheels are 18x10 +22 offset with a 12mm spacer so offset is really +10.  Just to give you an idea of how much space there really is.  Remember you can fit an 18x10 +50 offset on the stock body.  So, quick calculations tell me I can fit an 18x11 easily.

right on.  did you flare the body a bit or just really flatten the lip?  I am assuming you flared it out a bit.   I have an 18x10.5 +22 with no spacer but on K sports.  I have it a bit too low right now.  I will play with the ride height when I get around to it.

I'm going to take it out this weekend and see if it rubs or not.  I may raise the suspension a little if necessary.

Just to dig this back up.  I ran the dragon last weekend and didn't have any rubbing issues. 

The only issue I had was when I did a huge dump into 2nd gear and hooked up my car squatted and I rubbed a little on the passenger side.  The drivers side is stretched a little better than the pass.
