bend the lip on the rear arches in, either cut into it numerous times spaced around 60mm apart, then bend them up, fill and paint, or just whack them up with a hammer

if you hant had the arches rolled yet and you dont care about looks then mallet them out
use a bit of wood and a small rubber mallet and knock up the small flange 1st, then flare the main flange, the paint will flake aswell
i had to do that when i got my 205/50/15 r888`s, they were way to big for the car but the grip was on another level Very Happy
