helo, since the space between the wheel wells in my 01 dakota is 45 .2 inches i was wondering if it would be ok or unwise to cut out the wells 1.5 inches each to make it 48.2 inches wide. Room enough for drywall and standard sheet of plywood to lay flat. Is 1.5 inch less room in the wheelwell not enough room for the tire?? Thanks

Should be plenty of room, but to make sure, measure the distance between the tires from below. Are you going to end up boxing in the wheel wells again, or leave them open?

I want to box them back in. That will leave me with smaller wheel wells and less room for the tires n that's what makes me nervous about it

Did you ever do this? You could get wheels with 1.5” offset, as long as they don’t interfere with the fender, in which case you could get the fender rolled
