I'm really starting to consider some flares in the near future. I'm going with the CarBen Fibre Creations Karlton molds from UK. They will be for my 04 wrx. I'm thinking 18x10.5 57DR +22 Gramlights with 285/30 tire. I will also have to get the conversion spacer (5x100 to 5x114.3) but I'm not sure if I should get the 15mm or 25mm. Any help or suggestions?

Isc suspension 15mm adapters are nice. I'm running them. 25mm would be to much the 15s would set nice with the 285s

Hey just thought I'd share my new bugeye build...Up here in Canukistan we need to set-up the cars for deep snow, crappy roads, gravel/sandblasting for 6 months of the year.

Flares are just cool on these cars. They just look right...especially on a bugeye wagon!

I decided to do a full color change vinyl wrap in Matte Gunmetal metallic, and while I was doing that, I thought it was time to add customized flares, custom mudflaps, various aero bits, ST coilovers, ARP wheel studs, headlight/tailight protection. Before the internet experts point it out...I reversed the lower rocker aero bits on purpose. With the front flares on the car, the rear piece looked better visually/proportionately up front behind the front flare...just my taste.

Well 2 months of downtime later (spare time in the garage)...I am finally driving her...with the winter wheel set-up 17x7.5 prodrive wheels with massive 62mm/65mm spacers. I have Work 18x10.5 Kiwami's in bronze going on for the summer with (4) Potenza RE11's in 285/30r18 size. There will also be 15mm front and 25mm rear spacers to push them out to right about where these Prodive wheels sit. I built the rear flares 10mm wider than the base flares because a stagger look just seemed to look right given the non-blistered wagon rear fenders and the sedan front fenders. I also started with what were supposed to be Karlton flares for a bugeye sedan ( not sure if they were Forceworks or not as there was no branding on the box or flares). Was told they were Karltons...dunno.

If you look at the rear flares, I decided to make them multi-piece in case of rear bumper contact. I think they should have been made this way from the start as it just looks right and offers better real world functionality in the event of light rear bumper contact. I also bonded the rear set up instead of using fasteners after much consideration. The fastener holes didn't look right using my deeper/wider flare profile. The fronts bolted up pretty much as is with some very minor tweaking.

I have to say wrapping is not fun and I ended up using nearly 70 ft of a 75 foot roll. I had to redo a few panels and trying to do all the door jams was a [email protected]$##.

BTW... the driveline is a stroked 2.1L JDM STI EJ207 with custom built spec-c heads with Kelford cams, +1 valves. Bottom end features coated Mahle pistons, Tomei rods with L19 bolts, Killer B pickup, baffle, ARP studs etc. Reversed 08 wrx plastic intake manifold, perrin rails, ID1300's, Walbro 465, DCCD Fuel Pro, -6 lines, Perrin FMIC. The turbo set-up is rotated IWG twin-scroll 7163 (Full Race) using a Turbosmart WG actuator, Turbosmart eBoost2 control, running 94 pump gas with Aquamist Meth injection. Full 3" vband exhaust, Fujitsubo catback. Trans is V8 JDM Sti with DCCD Pro control. R180 DIff, Sedan control arms, 5x100 Brembos.










How much power you putting down?

What the differences between Karlton flares for Sedans and Wagons? Or If I have 1 set for Sedan, could I mount in a Wagon without mods?

without mods... You know there is a lot of work to do just to mount the wagon ones too right?

The wagon flares are made differently for both the front and rear as we don't have the bigger fenders that the sedans have. The rear flares for the wagon are a bit wider than the sedan ones to make up for this and still fit wide wheels. You would probably have to add some material to get it to sit flush, but I have never tried to line up a set. Some people have done it though.

Is this a for sure thing and do you know where it can be found? I've been on the FS area for the longest time trying to spot some, like everyone else so I can't really complain.

No idea, as I was etuned by phatbotti. I am planning on a pull or two this summer. Feels stronger throughout the rev range than my old gt30 setup though. It used to be ~ 375 whp on a dyno dynamics with the Gt30 single scroll at same boost... pump 94 + meth ~ 27 psi for now..

I really like these. I may have to get some for my 06 someday. Do you have to cut the original fender to install? I had heard that you do, but haven't looked into it.

So he doesn't make the flares anymore? That's a shame. I just emailed him today looking for some. Anyone got any for sale, or know of any alternatives. Id really rather do this than go with WRX sedan front fenders.

Seen what's happening. Seems like a fight over reps. I see both sides, I just really wanna throw some flares on my Subie. They look so sexy.

Why did I have to buy a wagon, so many less aftermarket visual options.

It's funny people arguing over reps or real flares. First it was rep wheels and real wheels, then real engine parts and fake engine parts. There will always be a company out there ready to cash in on making a cheaper replicated part. No matter what you do, you won't stop people from making them or customers buying them. For those who want quality parts it will show on their builds and the ones who cut corners will learn the hard way. I hate to see people fighting on here over parts because in the end, your just talking to yourself.
