Best fitting fender flares

Post by datsuntech » 30 Sep 2017 18:04

I'm looking for advice on bolt on fender flares. Anyone have any experience buying fender flares that fit well. I would prefer ABS, but excellent quality fiberglass is an option.

I like the $200 metal Ebay flares I mounted to my tubbed 2dr. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/JDM-Fender-Flare ... SwojxZoqyC

I had no idea they made metal ones. They look nice, thanks for the option.

Refresh60, not a cheap option, but I think reproductions are available. Mine:

I just purchased a set of the metal flares. It will take about a month to get. Glad to hear they fit well.

Thanks for the heads up. I am not sure if I’ll leave them black or paint them body color.

Keep us posted on how long it takes to get them and you opinion of the quality and fit. I am considering getting a set or two myself.
Always good to have more opinions.

Thanks for the reply and they seem to fit well, but I'm just not a fan of that style flares.
I don't like box flares or BRE flares either. I'm picky, I know.

Have you received the flares yet? I'm so curious about the fitment!

Sorry for the very slow response but I didn’t revive a notification.
I did receive the flares. I think it took about 3 weeks if I remember correctly.
Very happy with the figment.

Good to hear. That's two guys who like them. They are high on my list now.
