Hi, I’m just about to buy some group 2 arches. I’m fitting 6x12 wheels so obviously don’t need to cut the back. Will the group 2 rear ones fit the standard gap? And will the front ones fit to the cut arch at the front?

again it all depends on the fit of the wheels. the size means little the ET determines if the wheel sits out or in. as does if your drums are the correct ones to suit the disc set up. (built in 1" spacer).

Beware of quality as some don't fit well even with no body mods.....

 

Do any of these look like what you are after as I think Arc Angels are not cheap but look good quality?

Most good quality front arches usually have enough flex in them to accomodate a cut at the front of the wing for full steering lock. Bear in mind also that the arch extension is usually hollowed out so does not need to exactly follow the clearance cut in the wing, ie. it overlaps to some degree without touching the tyre on lock. I have Wood & Picket arches which are not hollow as standard (as they screw from below to wing flange) and the hardest to fit but there was still just enough flex to adjust the profile to front bumper lip with 6x10 ET15 offset, see link below:-
