Trying to think if you could measure from the unibody in the wells to the edge of the flares to see how much more room they make. I pulled the **** out of my rear fenders and it'd be disappointing to get flares and not gain that much. I know some of the guys with the Do-luck style front fenders saying that pulled/rolled fenders could fit just as much.

Wish they had 275/35-17 they'd be a better fit for our cars the overall diameter with the 275/40-17 is pretty large (maybe better if had 6spd gearing?) Car sits pretty high off the ground even with not much fender gap. One of the reasons I'd like flares if I could tuck tire and lower the car more (maybe on widebody would give me that? idk) Fronts would give me way more room though.

And my pullz for reference:

Yea I kind of feel like I'm going to riding like the Gobstopper, low but with ganga wheel gap. I'll try and see if Chris can take a few measurements for ya. What widebodies have you been looking at?

Yep. Got the rear hatch, bumper and rear diff as well as the whole front clip. Here's a pic in Japan before it got chopped up.

You know the stories about JIC coilovers right?
Yea, I can't wait. Yes I know the horror stories about the jics, you posted up in my other thread if you've forgotten. They're getting replaced with koni 8611's and swift springs most likely.
