I finally got my wheels today (over a year wait) Though they are not the perfect size/offset for these flares I'm thinking I'm going to run some meaty tires to compensate.

Just to pick everyone's brain: what did you guys pay (if you didn't do it yourself) to have the fender flares installed ? Including all the cutting and what not, excluding anything else related to wheels. Just the price of the flares painted and installed. I already own a set i dont want to hear how much they cost through karlton. Thanks in advance for sharing !

I really thought they would look better on white. Not sure what it is but seems white takes away something. Clean car tho.

I just picked up 18x10 rims with a 15mm offset. I haven't mocked up yet as I'm still searching for tires. Im looking at getting a 285/30/18 tire.

My question is would that be a good suitable size for the flares and what size mm spacers are people running with the 15mm offset? I currently have 25mm from my old set up but I feel that is WAY too much.

A couple pages back I asked the same exact question. I was told no, a 18x10 isn't a good size for the flares, they said an 18x10.5 at the smallest

We are currently working on installing the flares on a 06, just test fitted on my car and these these tires are ridiculous!

Keep me updated! I want to eventually run the same size tire, maybe even a 315/35

I recommend 315/30 won't recommend 35 profile.. its quite a bitch to make it work.
I will most likely be looking for 315s myself.

Also another thing to consider is what tire are you getting these R888 (305/35) are 12.5 inches wide. my HTR III (295/30) are only 11 inches wide... so as you can see there is a 1.5 inch difference between the tires, yet mine are only a size smaller!

Holy crap 305/35??? That's a TALL tire! 315/30 is a much better overall diameter for our cars haha.
