if you are prepared to remove the plastic arch trims at the back which takes like 2 mins, and instead of bolting them back on use a trim adheasive where the top 2 bolts would go, if you live anywhere near hertford ill help you, will take like 20 mins max.

GSI Same as mine - theyr tip top

Kris, my bodyshop guys dubious about taking arches off incase he snaps the clips and wants to spray them on the car - is it really simple and trouble free to take the arches off?

there is no clip on them, there are 10mm bolts on the back, you undo them and the arch comes off.

for the front tell em they have to take the arch liner out to get too them. dont spray them on the car, tell em to not be silly.

yep they would
mine are et 40 but they are very narrow rims only 6"

you would just have to do the debolting again to stop majority of the rubbing.
