I think a Dremel would be too weak to cut metal. I would use a die grinder with a cutting wheel on it.
Yeah I finally got them!!! I might have to take a look at your car to see what they did to your fenders. I'm going to start with a 295 I think... I'm not even sure that I'll need to cut them... but it'll be close.Weiyan8 said:Hey Jim, finally got those new wheels, huh? Sweet. I had my fenders cut as well at AAM. I'm not exactly sure what tool they used, though. I think it was a pneumatic saw. Anyway, it turned out great and you can't tell that it had been cut until you stick your head under there.
There is some place in Cary that has a fender rolling tool that they will lend you, but you have to roll it yourself. What tire are you going to try to fit under there? With an 11" wheel, you could prolly go with a 315 or maybe even 335.
Can't wait till you get that beast back on the road and take me for a ride! As for my car, it looks like I blew ANOTHER crank seal yesterday! I'm taking it back to the dealer tomorrow to have it replaced along with another timing belt. Later.

Thanks Swami!swamibob said:Those are some sweet ass rims!!! How much did it cost you to get them including shipping and where did you order them from?
