Wheel Flares

Anyone knows what this is? I think this would look pretty neat canted like that on a black car.

Just wondering what company that could be from... or what car it's for.

What a ****ing hackjob. Thank god that knob sold that car, used to be on E30Tech. Wasted a perfectly good car.

And yes, Ireland Engineering flares. Just copies of 4 front 2002 Turbo flares, hacked to fit the e30 bodyline. Looks terrible IMO. The front is meh, but the rear is disgusting.

The main problem I think is that the overall shape is round, I don't even like the BMP flares, I think it looks okay, after a second look I think that if these were angular they may be alright.

So now that these suck, what flares (other than ix) are decent. Are there any m3 replica rear flares?

Ix flares won't really work for ya man. They sit and are supported by the original fender lip, so they won't gain any extra space at all.

If you want flares, why not roll the crap out of your fenders? I know of a cheap fender roller available for rent

Another thought that just popped into my head (but I am not sure if it works) is the flares that the Nissan 240 boys tack on their cars. Those don't look half bad.
