Well I may have to find out.

I know a lot of people say I will hit tire against body before I hit bumps. But I am done with my car being lower. And with the v8 I don't mind the taller diameter.

As long as it doesn't hit everything. I plan on flares to get it away from the body and maybe ill have to do some more mods in the wheel well. I just want a 245 on a 17 and they would be grippy and wide and same price if not cheaper than the 15s

We are working through some issues...he sent us two sets but they were all rears. He's supposed to be getting a few sets of fronts made. I'll know more next week...

They are high quality, just a mistake on what was sent out.

A set is all four? I might well be interested in one then -- looking to fit 275/35R15 Hoosiers on my car.

Yep, a "set" is for all 4...he emailed today and said the new fronts would be ready in about two weeks.

We have them, but I am working out of town lately. Hopefully I can at least get them roughed up on the car this weekend and take a pic.

Sorry, I have been working out of town a lot lately and when I am in town I am trying to wrap up my spec miata build.

ZXTex actually has the proper full set of front and rear flares...but he just put a wide body on his car. I need to pick them up from him and mount them on my car so you guys can see a couple of pics of them installed.

We had some issues at first where we got 4 pairs of rear flares and no fronts. The seller went to the shop that makes them and had some new sets made up. I still need to get one one more pair swapped out due to the sellers confusion...that's another story altogether.

Sorry it's taking so long.

Yep I scored a wide body kit at a nice price so I am going in that direction instead. Otherwise I would be using these fenders. So it is all on Ryan now. Ryan, Hurry the **** up! Slacker!

Like Ryan said there were mix-ups on the shipping and we kept getting 1/2 sets which has now think we have at least one full set? Now between work, family, and building Miatas, Ryan and I have been pressed for time so progress on trying out the flares has been lacking.

I can probably get a pic of these up here in the next week or so...I finally wrapped up my garage and the lift is going in this week which means I will be back working on the V8 car again which is what these flares are going on.
