street flares vs works/semi-wors flare widths?

Recommended Posts

Anyone happen to know how much the works/semi-works rear fender flares stick out from the body on a S30 in comparison to the commonly available street flares (which are replicas of what came on the ZGs)?

There was a red S30 in the parking lot outside the Japanese Classic in Long Beach two months ago but I neglected to take a measurement even though I did take some pics...

Nauto's car. I meet him at the EXC/Club4ag car show, a week before the Little tokyo Showoff show. Yea Super big flairs covering Super deep R Type Wats.

He wanted $9,000 for the car. Pretty good price figuring the 3 grand Wats, the $300 fender mirrors, the priceless headlight covers, the Works stlye flares. The Grand nose was the 2 piece FRP knock-off. The engine was stock and badly needing detail. The paint was a 6 out of 10 and then there was the bent hood. The interior was clean.

Eric, I'm just eyeballing that size. 15X9 @-19 is an availible R type size/offset. Just judging by the appearence. No guarenties of accuracy stated or implied. I'm wondering if he sold the car or not. Kinda kicking myself I didn't buy it. A little spa treatment and it could be a beauty!

Bill, ya really don't like them? They are VERY "Correct" to me.

A bit too loud for my likeing. Definately an aquired taste and yeah still not a bad price. I do want those head light covers. Does anyone one know where they come from? Or are they just a myth now. For the record I have 9" mags on my F & Rear. So the offset on that car must be huge and unecessary and still don't fit under the guards!

If we cross reference R.S. Watanabe's website and the user submitted photos, it looks like ZG (or replica) size flair can easily house a 9.5" -19. So those are either wider, have a more negative offset, or a spacer.

So my question is, how do we get 15" tires this wide anymore?...Not a fan of 16's or gasp, 17's on an S30 chassis!

Thanks gain for hosting F1 again this weekend Eric!!!!:cheeky:
