    lips of the arches. wheels are 8" wide so where catching.

    had them folded under flat, ( rear has a 1cm lip, front few mm ) then had them pushed out slightly to make more room for wheels.

    rear still catches buper bracket when full though, but that aint often.

    used to catch loads on uneven road wi me and g/f in. sorted.
