Default stock front fenders widened out like evodave kit?

hey guys is there anyone who sells a kit that includes spacers, bolts, brackets that can space out the front fenders to gain up to 30mm more clearance like the evo dave kit? I think itd be more cost effective than buying 10 mm "wider fenders"..

I haven't seen a kit like that... it is interesting. Not quite sure how I feel about it.

old setup:



new:



It required a lot of cutting front and rear, plus the front inner fenders are tubbed. lowering the car nearly 2" and then putting on 295s needs a lot of clearance.

A couple of little diy brackets should make a difference for a skinnier tire though.

You can still do this stock. 265's aren't that big.

not fender flush though...
yeah you could but with +40 or higher offset,wanting to run lower offsets in front due to brembo clearance but also to help reduce understeer. a kit to give up to 30mm could let us run a 285 tire easily but thatd be overkill for my car.

We know what's going on!

Maybe we could talk to a Vendor to see if they could produce a kit similar to that of an Evo?

I would like to find a kit as well. Fitting a 265 FLUSH would require a lot of roll and maybe even a pull on an 02-07.

For ~$70, and being reversible, that would be a good buy. I would much rather spend the money on a kit than rolling/pulling my fenders. Might avoid some paint/body damage as well.

TIC (Turn In Concepts), GrimmSpeed, ummmmm, I'm not too sure.

I'd say TIC first, then GrimmSpeed.

Who would you think?

I still don't understand what you want. You can fit 265's on the stock body with a pull/roll, if you have the right offset wheel and enough negative camber. Pick the wheel you want to run and modify accordingly, not the other way around.

Basically, NO PULL, NO ROLL, NO POSSIBLE BODY DAMAGE!

We get to stuff a wider, lower offset rim/tire combo. If we RTS, we can unbolt it, and have clean fenders. Simple.

what about the rear though? would it be a higher offset wheel or what?

im thinking 265 all around the rear would need some clearance help as well (just camber?)

Same here.

I'm pretty sure the AutoX, SCCA, and Hella Flush guys would probably jump all over this for their various reasons.

The rear would unfortunately remain the same. Rolling, Pulling, and possibly Grinding.

I couldn't see a 285 but maybe a 265 or 275.

265 is nothing crazy but I would say it would need camber and a roll/pull.

Check out the Member's car gallery or Wheels and Tires. Fitment's have been thoroughly covered.

Yea, it is possible. I wouldn't be going that big. 265's or 275's at all 4's seems to be enough. Unless you're doing something completely crazy.

I saw a pic of his car the other day.....AMAZING!
