Default What do I have to do to make this fit?

in regards to fender work?

in other words .... they will not fit the car correctly but, you can make them fit with a fair amount of work

my bet is you'll have to roll and pull the fenders on top of some (by some i mean a lot) of negative camber.

+45 is much friendlier. what suspension mods? what tire size are you going to use? i'm on rce yellows with 18x8.5 +48 and 255/35/18s and i needed a very mild rear fender roll.
