Hi All
I'm looking for some advice on trimming the front wheel arch on my 2006 Jimny (as ringed in pictures). I'm not looking at the whole arch just the front to allow for some -30 off-set wheels many thanks

Are they already on the offset rims in the photo?

So is it that you don't know how much to trim or do you want to know the best way to trim?

Do it right - use Hammerite

Angle grinder with cutting and sanding discs, or simply a good knife.
Depends on how much you have to remove.

I am not convinced you will need to trim the bumper. Have you taken clearance measurements of any kind at all?

The wheels at the moment are standard rims. I know that if i put wheel spacers on they catch. In the near future i will be getting -30 or -15 off set rims and 215/75/15 tyres so the bumper will need trimming

That could explain my thinking as I had 225 70 15s on mine with no mods.

This was for 215/75r15 with 30mm spacers on standard alloys:



Then onto 235/75's and it still fitted:



They had to have a bit out of the back of the front wheel arch as well because that was also catching on mine. With the standard arches on the 30mm spacers made the wheels stick out a little on 215, so on with arch mods, then the 235's which stuck out more...

Now on 31x10.5 so has extender plastic bits here and there as well.
