That's true hmmm... Well only reason I was getting flared fenders cause my tires rub on the fender when car is full (3 people including driver). Like I said before I have a TEIN suspension and 19" BBS 225/25 tires (I think that sounds about right) so you could say car is low. And in order so it won't rub people suggested going stock suspension, but stock suspension cost 1000+ so I've heard. Another route was the flares.

If you guys have any other suggestions that isn't to costly I would appreciate lol

Those will look so fvcking sick, and they're only $90! Plus your body shop is cutting you a great deal, why haven't you bought them yet?

Do it. Do it and post pics. So excited for this. And I really want to see them (maybe) 19" BBS rims, too.

BTW bro, if you read the tire size, it'll tell you how big your rims are. It'll say xxx/yyZR X, where X is the diameter of the tire. Subtract the sidewall height from that (the yy, it's in mm so you have to convert, divide it by two because its on both sides of the rim and you only need to subtract it once) and you'll have your rim size.

That's the thing the regular size rims for my e46 are 17" but having fat tires will make them rub even more with thin tires its like 0.5 inches away from rubbing. I have done something else which is flush the back tires so the rubber wouldn't rub instead the rim will be rubbing.

Lol are you just telling me to do it for sarcasm or do you really want to see how it will come out to be? :O I mean I'm like 50/50 so iunno if ill do it but after I have my car back ill post some pictures of how my car looks and ill probably consider flared fenders or not by then
