Planning on running some 15x10s on the rear of the wagon, I've been looking at flares and ZG flares look like they'll do the trick, anyone done up some flares on their colts/galants? I'd like some input, but I know this forum is pretty quiet, so please, speak the hell up.

Thinking about picking a set of these up

Are you going "half on the door, half on the quarter panel" flare, or permanently disabling the rear door? Seems like doing it right will require lots of cutting and welding. Big job...

But would be cool if done correctly. :tu:

Here's one that has the rear fender lips cut out, and the flare cut in half.

And these will fit better than the ZG flares, and are cheaper. :wink:

I am indeed going half on the door, cutting and welding is my specialty, so no worries there. I was actually looking at a couple sets on ebay today, sending you a PM now.

I'd be dead keen to see how they look on your wagon as well.
