Default The GR/GV fender flare thread

It seems like it's starting to grow quickly. I'm not sure of a specific GR/GV fender flare thread. So let's build one! Post pics and specs of your setup in here. I know there is now a few of us with flares or WIDER bodies.

Hopefully this will help others gain knowledge on what can and can't fit. I myself kinda just did it blind.

HT AUTOS flares. Continental Extreme Contact DW 295/35-18 tires. Enkei PF01 18x10.5 +15..obviously cutting of fenders and bumpers required.

hopefully this gets a lot of responses, searching for gr flares doesn't come up with much. I'm mainly interested in the over fender look.

Exactly why I made this thread. I'll post pics of my setup shortly. I had almost no info regarding wheels and tires to go with flares. This Is for flares, over fenders or whatever else someone can come up with for the GR/GV

Only one person has a true wider body and now 2 with the flares. Yours looks ok I do love the stance. Are you paint matching the flares?
I do feel like this thread will be very short at least for another year or so. I know guys fitting 265s some 285s under the stock fenders so there really is no need other then looks to go wider, and there is nothing wrong with that as I am all about stance and looks.

It maybe short for some time. But at least we got a place to go and look

eventually the flares will be painted, i kinda like the black flare. so not sure if they'll be PBP or black.

Car is looking good.

I also have a set of ht auto I was waiting for more installed pictures.

I want more I am thinking I may sell the ht auto and get the vollkommen design flares minus the lip and sides and spats .

I want meat tires like 295+

Dmc1 looks great can you show a view showing the wheel to flare clearances (poke or flushness)

I agree but I got the wheels for $0. Eventually they will be changed.

That looks incredible Oaf. Can you get a straight on shot from the rear at about a foot above the ground? Interested in seeing how it sits from behind.

I know there won't be daily updates with this thread since not many people have gone wider, but anyone else got something to share?
