Speaking of trimming the fenders. What's cheapest way to get that done? I read that a belt sander is best, but I really want to use a small cheap dremel or something. I don't need to keep piling tools up in my apartment.

Get yourself a grinder with a cutting wheel and you will be set

What are you talking about. A 10.5 +25 and up will only need a shave. Does not have to flare and if he did it wouldn't look good because it would be to weak of a wheel.

i used a dremel to cut mine then followed it with the stone grinder to smooth out the edges. i used 10 disc to cut both sides. i took out out 5/8" of the fender. this is the end result:
(19x10.5 +18 with 245/35 dropped on Megam LP's)

Without rear passengers, there's no rubbing and fender clears the rim. But with passengers , it rubs just a little. I need to raise it just a littlle so it clears even with passengers.
