Equinox ones are 290mm wide (11,42''.

Too small ?

Yes 290mm is a little too narrow for what I am after 305mm - 310mm would be perfect, I was even considering the GBS arches until I saw the price at £177 each.

Ah right.

What's your reasoning for needing the odd size?

Actually, I'm in the same boat

the normal ones are too narrow, and the extra wide ones are too wide, suspect it's an offset thing. Might be exacerbated by my rears being 8" wide.

I actually bought some from the bay of evil which were meant to be MK Indy wide arches, but the radius is all wrong didn't realise unntil I got them home....

I didnít manage to find some at the required width in the end so I bought some off a eBay shop that were 300mm wise then trimmed the inner lip of the arch to give myself some extra clearance however my rear wheels are 7j wide / Et35 offset with a 195 50 15 tyre and my rear tub is about 110cm wide making the total car width outside rear arch to the other outside rear arch 1710mm.

Iím also running a Granada drive train with the 7.5Ē diff, 105mm driveshafts etc if that helps
