SC Bolt-on Fender Flares!
 
So, I was messing around on tumblr yesterday, and what pops up on the screen but this beauty! While I have no desire to add the flares and go that wide on my car, the look is totally awesome, and I don't think I've ever seen another SC with flares like that (I searched on here and found nothing relevant or similar), so I figured I'd share them with you guys and see if it's anyone on here or if anyone has any more info on them. I linked the pictures to the photographer's flickr so you can see full-res shots and such :D

These and the widebody are where Im at a toss up on my SC. Dont think there are any members here that have them. Im still debating on what to waste $200 on..these, a fender roller, or just bite the bullet and go full widebody.

everyone likes different things, to me this car looks like a pick up truck with bushwacker fender flares. Once again is just my opinion, a properly done body work looks much better imo. The body is straight and all of the sudden you have these flares that stick out 3 inches out, theres no transition in these lines.

^^^ I agree with that, It looks off and i think the exposed screws/rivets look horrible. It would look alot better if the fender flares were molded in/ blended in with the car.

I like it reminds me of a ZG S30. What brand are those and where do I buy it from?

It would look so much better if they moulded them in.

That grey sc is the only one that pulls those off IMO.. otherwise they belong on a jeep

I've been thinking of these flares for a couple months now, I always thought they looked weird on modern-ish cars, but when i saw a jzx90 with them on (a car i usually hate), I started to want to do some for the sc. But most flares out there extend about 50mm, so getting wheels to fit would be $$$$$

And only if that gray sc's rear fender flares extended further back, it'd be spot on. Step lip + fender flare = awesome. reverse lip + fender flare = weird.

B, you're gonna need some wider vossens if you get those! :)

I like the flares on the grey one more. The shape of them or something is rounder.

BSanders22 02-14-13 12:09 PM

Oh, I'm definitely not getting these, not my style at all. lol They look kinda cool and tough, but it takes the right car to be pulled off. I'm happy with my current fitment :) I just figured with all of the throwback JDM fender flares popping up lately on other cars, like the Rocket Bunny FRS, you guys would get a kick out of these.

I personally like them. Different strokes for different folks.

They look really weird to me. If they didn't have the rivets/screws showing it'd be fine. I'd rather have Vertex fenders.
