Removing Arch linings

Hi I've got a set of Fox 15's on 195/50 tyres and they rub against the arch linings with hardly any turning circle so I was wondering if it would be ok to take the arch linings out or will it be too risky exposing the cam belt and the rest of the engine bay? or would it be better to cut out enough of the linings to allow full turning circle?

Cheers, Shakey

Re: Removing Arch linings

All the crap and water off the road will end up in your engine bay. Not the best idea. Sell the 15's too someone with a punto and get some 14"s. I can get full lock no problems. Got yoko 195/45/14's ok.
