That will look great Jeff. Remember that offset is everything when it comes to wheels that wide.

Good luck. I just put some Volk gt-ps on my car and they rub like hell. And they are only 10 inchs wide in the rear with a 275-40-18. And I had the fenders cut. And they still rub........Griff

Peter,
I'm surprised that Jeff didn't make you a set where you didn't have to cut/roll the fenders for an 11" rear. Infact i spoke to him few days ago for a friend of mine and Jeff said that he can make him a set in 18x11" with around 55mm offset by shaving some metal off from the pad and thus he won't need any fender mods.
Later, Yasir

Yasir, this IS the supra offset you are talking about. Unfortunately, with the G-Force, which tend to have a higher profile than other 35's, they do rub... I don't mind cutting the fender though, it's no biggie...

Griff, you have a SHITTY offset, that size SHOULD not rub... Come out tonight, we are meeting at the barnes and nobles on westheimer at voss at around 10 pm or so.

on a side note, in your picture there are 2 holes behind the side duct in the wheel well. there don't appear to be any screws or clips in there, are there supposed to be? i have not seen a mkiv yet with them in.

Look at the pic posted above, you will see the fender is cut, not rolled. I did NOT do it myself, i attempted to on my old black car but it's NOT worth doing yourself, too tough a job.

I cut my fenders... it wasn't too bad. The first cut was scary as hell... but then it was fine. I used a homemade guard that would stop the cutting wheel from going anywhere near the outside of the car.

I used a rotozip with the 90 degree elbow and the carbon fiber cutting disks. Those bad boys will cut through anything!

Good luck with the cutting...

I don't have any pics of the funders but there are pics of my car with the 11's on in click the link in my sig.

Peter sorry I missed you but next weekend Im good to go if you all meet. The wheels I have (so I was told from volk) come in only one offset for the supra. The offset is +43 in the rear and a +37 in the front. Thanks..............................GRIFF

Fender rolling caution

If you have to roll your fenders there is a special tool, not a baseball bat that needs to be used. Attaches to wheel studs after rim is removed. KEY is using a heat gun while rolling fenders so paint doesn't crack! BTW my 18" RH are 9 from 39 offset-10 rear 44offset. thanks to Steve Jarvis.
