I think they're dope looking, and I'm pretty anti-rice. Those are some BIG tires.

Glad to see an NC owner "mod" his car in a more meaningful way than adding a horn or a second power outlet.

maybe if they were painted.......................and had a $500 price tag. you can only sell parts nowadays if they are really expensive and you have very cheap ("inferior") alternatives. that's what i decided today.

I like them, but I'll be honest... I could care less how they look

Stuffing huge tire in there makes me smile.

Being AWR, I don't want to know how much they cost.

Regardless of how they look, at least they are functional rather than cosmetic.

Functional flares used to stuff big tires FTW.

Aesthetic flares molded into the body and painted to match the car and used to tuck heavy *** wide wheels with 195 series tires stretched onto them. FTL

I hate Rice.

Ron Bauer's car pictured in the 1st post meets the 1st criteria I listed.
