Flaring fenders on a malibu

Postby itsnotanova on Fri Jun 25, 2010 9:19 pm

I wass thinking about widening the fenders so I could fit really wide tires. I kicked around the idea in my head when I was bored. I then started using photobucket and they have programs that let you manipulate pictures. This is what I came up with. The rear fender is more what I'm thinking. I'm hoping I can fit corvette 17x9.5 in the front and 17x11 in the back.

You could do it I think. Seen alot of the GP and regal guys using fiberglass fender flares but I have yet to see someone do it on a malibu. Best bet would be to roll the fender lip and you should be set with that and notching the rear frame rail.
