    At what point in cutting/grinding is too much. I rolled my rears then ending up cutting/sealing/painting. Now I have a new setup and have some rubbing issues, I'd rather not jack the car up and was thinking about grinding some more but I am worried about the inner panel and quater seperating. Is this possible?

    At what size rim width wise do you have to cut or roll the fenders? Is it 11inch and bigger? I know most of it depends on the size of tire to.

    Do you guys cut into the plastic mold towards the rear of the car, or just up to it?

    I only cut up to it but thats actually where I found I was rubbing the most, so I might try to trim at least a little bit off of there, but I haven't tried yet.
    I actually found that on cut fenders it is only rubbing from 12 oclock and rearward, nothing forward of that... thought it was kind of strange but thats how it is for me.

    usually if you're going with agressive offset or 305-up ,the upper portion of that trim piece needs to be cut or trimmed

    I find my point of least clearance is at the rear where the trim piece starts... I'm going to shave a bit of that off to give myself a little more room back there. basically trim it right up to the top fastener, but leave the head of the fastener in tact.
    (On the drivers side), I have 0 rubbing issues from 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock, but I do have issues from 12 o'clock to 3 o'clock (and its the opposite o'clocks on the passenger side). Thought that was kind of strange but I guess thats how it is with Supras...

    that's pretty normal, all MKIV's will have rubbing at 3 o'clock with bigger wheel/tires combo,that's the way they were built,that area is not as wide as 9 o'clock

    I have put 27 inch diameter tires on my car. I agree with TROLL the most rubbing occurs at the beginning of the front and rear plastics.

    Yeah... and I just edited my post to clarify since I realized that 3 o'clock on the drivers is different than on the passengers, I mean its at the rear of the wheel wells where that plastic trim piece starts, which you know I'm sure but others might not.

    we always use a rubber coated baseball bat and utilize the tire on the car to roll a fender, works perfect if you know what your doing and it's free

    Problem with that is there's a learning curve...which most people wouldn't want to lean on their Supra.

    you do this without pulling the fender or cracking the paint?
    the only people i've ever seen do that dont really care much about how the finished product looks...

    yeah I have never cracked the paint, if you have never tried it before you may not want to start on a supra, but zzt23-...thats why I said "if you know what your doing"

    I rolled mine a bit with the rolling tool but, belive it or not supra's have some heavy duty sheet metal on the Q-panels because it was a bitch to do.
    I was gonna have my body shop cut them but, he said DO NOT cut them.
    The reason is that the q-panle sheet metal is welded to the fenders and thats why there is a few spot welds on the inner lip & it makes it difficult to roll. I was told if you cut them it could cause the Q-panels to vibrate/shake and it reduces the strenght of q-panles.

    I'm with you, wouldn't want to do it with a bat with no experience.

    Wow thanks. I read through all 6 pages guessing at what everyone was talking about.

    On my brother's m3 the rear fender was flared. Probably the sexiest looking rear end I've seen in my life.

    I had the bodyshop cut my rear fender lips off before they painted... they did an awesome job. The edge is very low profile but still slightly rounded so its not sharp at all... they put seam sealer up in between the panels and redid the undercoating. I talked to quite a few people about cutting it before I went ahead with it but in my research I never found anyone who had a problem with cutting, just theories with no backing. Speaking to a bodyshop that does a lot of work on Supras as well as a few other owners, all those who have cut them have had 0 problems so I felt fine with it.

    The one thing they left is they didnt trim any of the plastic rear trim piece which clips to the rear bumper. The top corner of that is the point of least clearance still so I'm going to shave the corner of it off so its not sticking out in the way any more.
    I'll get some photos next chance I get with the wheels off, looks 'factory' though .

    The lesson starts about 1 minute in. To pull the fender simply keep going untill the desired amount is there.

    Here is my car fresh from paint with a 2" pull all around to clear 275's and tuck! 18 x 10 +0.


    After setting camber and height. Baseball card clearance fellas!!!
