Shell Modification when fitting Manta B axle

Do you need to cut the arches when fitting a Manta B axle due to it being wider?

you need to fit an arch kit so that your arches are as wide as the outside of the wheels to be inline with UK road laws
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

is it not just possible to use a different offset on the rear wheels?

surely the rear wheels could be FWD fitments as they use an offset to shunt the wheel back into the car??? :roll:

I would like to know as i am planning to use a manta B axle but dont want to extend the arches really.... (2 door saloon if thats any help...)

Cheers
