i change the pictures.

s2k rear asm fenders on the sc was where i was trying to go with it. i think they would flow better then every other flare posted and they are only 25mm so they dont extend outward so far. i emailed shine to see if they would possibly mock them on a sc if they had one around as i want a 18x11 in my rears soon

Ahh, I get it now , keep me posted on what they tell you. 25mm would be much better with my current setup than the ZG 3'' flares, and keep me from having to change tire sizes.

I agree, why mess up the timeless body lines of the SC. For a pure track car I can understand though.

Adding some fuel to the debate... UZZ30 manual drift car with flares:

Here's a different take on SC/Soarer flares:

sorry to thread revive, but does anyone know if there are any more pics of the grey sc300? I remember there was an article on it but I can't find it anywhere.

I like the fender flares, but imo, they look a lot better when they are painted to match. And molding them may look weird, the rivets and bolts give it character. They do look better with kits though

I don't hate on them, but I wouldn't put it my my sc, I think it looks good on narrow cars to make them look wider, but sc's have fat *** and it just looks too bulky and rough on that smooth and curvy body.
Some may like it like that, but running wide wheels like that is harsh fo yo bearings too jmo

I've always liked the look of the flares on an sc. The only thing I don't like is how the front flares always go above the body line, To me it just doesn't look right. But it wouldn't stop me from bolting some on. Lol

I might end up putting some on mine, I would feel bad at all as the car only cost me $300

While I think that black car pulls it off I bought an SC to keep it clean and throwing fender flares on it like its a race car defeats a huge part of why I like the car. That kind of stuff belongs on track cars and 240SX's lol
