If you cut them in the right spot but remember you are making an opening into the engine compartment so water can easily gain access to your ignition, intake system, charging system and belt drives when you drive it on wet roads at any speeds. This car was not designed for wheels that large so you will notice some handling and braking changes not to mention speedo and odo being wrong.


Try to find or make 1" aluminum spacers OR have a body shop roll the wheel well lip back a bit. They hammer & dolly it a little. I put big tires & wheels on a Mazda rotar truck once & had to have the wheel arches modified.
