Sedan sideskirts will fit a wagon with no problem, they are the same. The exception being 06-07 wagons, the skirts are slightly different on those where they meet the front fenders.

Thanks for your dumbass opinion
Just out of curiosity and in no means meant to bash or anything but how much room do you actually gain from this mod? The way those are mounted it seems purely cosmetic and doesn't seem to give you anymore tire room per say. I can still see the contour line of the original fender. In order to run a decent low and functional ride height with wide rubber and flares you would have to cut the fender at close to that body line and then attach the flares as far up as possible to provide adequate room for for tire to travel into the fender at full compression.

There is no way my 17x9s would fit the way those are mounted. I pulled the **** out of mine to get them to fit and now it's ok with 255/40s on 17x9s no rubbing and I rip on mine pretty good in corners. I guess it depends how you use your wagon and what you're going for. I don't think it looks bad at all though. Great use of what's readily available for cheap!

That's been discussed in the flare thread and as of right now it is purely cosmetic.

I'm in the same boat as you though. About to put 245/35s on an 18x9 on my wagon in the spring.

As for the strakes, I removed them for the skirts. During transport the trucker smashed the skirts and lost and entire skirt with the strakes on it while on the highway. It now just has painted skirts, but will have painted strakes eventually and I am also painting the rears as well.

Like 2 days before the forecast , we were predicted to get like 1-2 inches of slush overnight. Woke up to almost 9 inches, and 10 miles south of me ended up with 13 inches. Totally bizzare.

Nah a good wheel and suspension set up along with a good wax and you'll Suprise yourself how good it looks. There's a lot of little stuff that barely cost any money.

A good wheel and suspension set up can cost upwards of 2k. That's considered barely any money??

I never said that part was cheap. But there is a lot of stuff you can do that barely cost anything. Like the headlight mods and all the other DIY stuff. I'm just saying it doesn't take a lot to make it look good

You're completely right, as stated they're purely cosmetic. By cutting the fenders you could easily gain an inch with these cheap flares but I'm happy with them as they are. My current wheels are 18x8.5 +35 but my tires are pretty narrow and a little stretched at 215/40 (got a good deal on them). Although i do enjoy plenty of "spirited" driving, my car has never seen a track.
