Default Rear Fender Modification Extravaganza.

I'm at a crossroads here. I am at a point where I need a bit more tire and my stock metal has pretty much been pulled to its limit. I'm trying to decide between over fenders or metal flares. To help anyone else that is going through this, or may go through this in the future it would be cool to see a photo thread with over fenders, pulls, or modified metal etc. along with wheel and tire specs. (tire sizes, wheel size, and offset), camber specs would help as well.

I only need a little bit more room for more tire. All the over fenders I find are 50mm which means I would have a lot of extra room that I don't need. The metal route would be more durable, fit exactly how I want, but be a bit more difficult and time intensive.

18x11-3 stock metal pulled 235/40/18 ( I want to go up to a 255)

Same wheel on my old car with a 245. For some reason I had a lot more room on this chassis??

Post yours up, especially if you happen to have 50mm overs.

The more I see your car...the more I want to throw all caution into the wind and do this.

Thanks man. I have always done safe styling on my cars, I decided to do some things I have always wanted. Still a bit to go.

Yes, but I will be going to 12's in the spring. So I need a bit more room in the back. But not as much as 50mm on each side. No I am on Powered By Max coilovers.

Go with a less aggresive setup.....you can do a 18x11.5 with a offset of +50 and you will be able to fit a 315
