+1 on those flares Cspence posted above. I like them. If I ever run 275 tires on my track car I would need a set.

That being said, I am not planning on doing this anytime soon, unless Nitto comes out with a NT01 in 275-15". Not holding my breath on that one.

Same price point as the hood right? cuz the ones at rev9 ($775+shipping) is simply TOO much...If these could be made and sold for around $300+shipping they'd sell like hot cakes. I know I would be the first in line!

I don't see the point for flares. Autokonexion already has fiberglass widened fenders for sale, and there's a gamut of rear flares available to begin with.

(Or the Autokonexion flares for $285 shipped)

From what I can tell, the flares that cspence posted are much larger than the autokonexion ones, and better looking IMO.

They add $95.00 to the total cost of something which is turning out more expensive now that I'm really considering it..
$325.00 for hood shipped
$95.00 Catches
Cutting holes in my $325.00 hood
$200.00 - $500.00 to have hood painted...

On the low side that hood is gonna cost around $620.00?

Don't mean to keep cluttering this thread up with this stuff...but just wanted to throw up a pic for ease of comparison:

AutoKonexion N2 Flare ($500+155 Shipping)
Autokonexion


No comparison to these IMHO (REV9 Tuckin99 N2 Flares $775+Shipping)

^^^ Ahh OK nevermind. For some reason when I visited the Autok site the N2 version image did not come up. Those are just fine and the price is right.

The thing that sucks about the AK flares is that the front ones require that retarded lip that fits horribly. I'd much prefer the wide fenders in the front and some flares in the back.

And IMHO, the Tuckin ones look nicer, but since when is this beautypageant.net :P
