I wouldn't focus on canards... but something to angle bumper out more and block air hitting front tires.

I've seen people making those tire guards and I've never completely understood it. Excuse my ignorance but what's the difference between air hitting the guards or air hitting the tire?

splitime is talking about literally pushing the bumper out if i understand... that way its like the bumper is wider, not having the "tire guard"

Well yes, sorta. Anything that angles cleanly and helps block air from the tires would help. So a wall isn't hit by the air.

That's the goal, some sort of tire spat so the air doesn't hit the front tires.
