My flares showed up last week and now I get to walk by them sitting in my basement every day, since I decided to order a diffuser and rear spats which come from China which will likely change how I mount them, and any mods I need to make to the flares.

Oh well, it's cold outside anyways.

Did some more research on this, but it looks like Corrado G60's had even wider flares.....|

BTW, if this wasn't mentioned yet..the difference between no molding and thick molding is that the "thick molding" model has a piece that sticks out "flow" with the molding on the jetta if it came with side moldings. Correct me if im wrong?

Early on, all flares were the same size (and only came on GTI, GLI, and some Jetta GL models).

85-87 are all the same with no built-in side trim extensions (side trim was glued to the body).

88-early 90 small bumper cars had the same size flares with fat side trim built in.

90-92 big bumper flares have skinny side trim built in, as well as the side skirt extensions.

They come in two types: GTI 8v, Jetta GL and Jetta GLI all had the "8v" flares.

GTI 16vs in the USA and GTI G60s elsewhere around the world came with the extra-wide flares and notched fenders (GTi 16vs worldwide had normal flares, it was only here in the USA they got the wider flares).

No GLIs had the extra wide flares, though they'll fit on any big bumper GLI with some fender mods.

For the rock guard flares, there is the 85-87 type, and the 88-92 type (and big bumper cars had extra protectors near the bumpers as well). Take note that the holes are different between the 85-87 and 88-92 bodies. So the later style guards will leave a hole exposed, and the earlier guards won't mount correctly on an 88-92 body.

Cool

Would look sick if the tires stuck out a bit. Give it that stance

I'm sure it's somewhere in this thread but couldn't seem to find it. Anyone tried these with a regular wagon front end but with STI splitters? I really like the look of these but I dremeled into my bumper to fit the splitters so there is no taking them off.

I don't see it being an issue, just carefully notch around the swell in the splitters.

What tools did you guys use? Dremel, sand paper, color matched spray paint, screw driver and screws, jack/stands anything else required or would at least be helpful? Also the consensus is the ones without molding are the way to go correct?

Not at all trying to be rude, but there's a lot of info in this thread. I've done like 3 separate write-ups alone on the first couple of pages. Check em out.

I really like your two tone theme.

You definitely need some wider wheel/tire setup to fill the gap a lil.

Looks great. Has the oem quality look.

Well if you go with a different wheel/tire setup you can run lower profile tires (25 in) and run some extra caster to push the wheels forward. That will also improve your handling

My mk2 flares just came in! I'll put them on my wagon this week. I have some 18x9.5 et30 wheels I'll be stuffing under them and I'll be putting on 15-20mm spacers as well.


I originally fit these wheels on the stock fenders with a roll and slight pull and was able to sit just about wheel lip to fender with a 205/40 on the 9.5(yes I'm one of those "stance kids"). With these flares I want to mount a 225/35 or 235/35 on the wheels, run the spacers and be able to tuck just a bit of tire. *stay tuned*
