    Nice - good luck with those - I think there is the potential for those to look great

    I look forward to getting my wheels and tires and laying down some clay to get a sleek smooth mold!

    Hmm, it's hard to tell what the finished product Will look like. Idk of I like the front coming down so far but it's still too early to tell.

    Only issue now is offset wheels or spacers to bring them out to the new fenders. Keep us posted, I'm definitely interested in this!!

    They look really good, just may be hard to keep the car clean with the tires exposed on the backside of the fenders.

    But it looks cool!
    Lol
    The design actually reduces turbulence and drag in the wheel wells.
    Not to mention all the people running pocket style flares or the karltons don't seem to have issues with the rears tires exposed. Pretty much all fender flares leave tire exposed in the front and rear.
    At least mine cover most of the front for aerodynamics.

    So how are you getting your tires out further? Wheels spacers? Wheels with offset?

    I've seen a lot of negatives about wheel spacers, but I don't know enough about them.

    My wheels are 18x9.75 +20 offset with 275/35/18 tires.
    They are much wider and stick out 2.4 inches farther than stock.
    You could use spacers. Obviously spacers are not as good as a solid wheel, but they aren't that much worse either.
    If your not racing often spacers are ok, if you track your car often you'll want a set of wheels with proper offset.
