I didnt want to do the fender flares, but I had to to run the big tires. This way I will not only be able to raise the fender line, it will also kick it out a half inch. That way I should be able to lower the car another inch and tuck the stickies. The rears will be tucked for sure, just not sure how much I will be able to get out of the fronts.

I don't know about raising the fender line, you might be able to fit the slicks in better just by massaging the fenders.
Whatever as long as you have wide enough tires to back it up (which you do) it should look alright.

Oh I massaged them alright :) Creased the fuck out of it. Even after the lip was rolled it still come in contact with the tire. Tires are definatly large enough to fill the flares up.

I still want to lower it some though cause the ride is a rock right now with the coilovers jacked all the way up.

They are just some universal fender flares on ebay. I think they were about 170 bucks. After the auction ended the guy emailed asking 2-4 door and make model and year.

The flares are not even remotely close to fitting (as you can see) Im going to have to cut them into peices and fiberglass it back together to get the shap correct. :sigh:

Also Im doing the fronts only down to the fender line, and probablly not the rears down to the ground....


I got 2 missing rims. My sister had a party, broke her foot, and left the garage door open. They stole 2 of the black POS 16" that I have on the front temporarily. I have no clue why they would only steal 2, and especially the shitty ones, when my hyperblack 17"s were only a few feet away, plus my car was unlocked and the windows down with the dash off. My car could have easily disapeared.
