    I've seen this video before & although some may like it; it's like a "what not to do" guide for me. Like the concept of wider tires, but not at that expense. Looks like a tuner's car all the way, & imo, makes the car look cheap. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... Too bad some guy's are blind...

    In order for that car to look good, IMO, I would only do the rears and I would have them molded to the car and painted to match...no screws around the top edge. The front looks funny to me...the lines on the rear part are much nicer. I wouldn't want huge tires in the front anyways...only the rear. I probably would shave the rear flares down a bit too, as it's just a little too wide. I would want to retain the OEM wheels and put 305's on them. Since they're add on pieces, you could always mount them a bit lower just to give it the lowered look, instead of putting air suspension on it. To each their own...this is just what I would do, but that's a lot of work and money...and in reality, I just wouldn't ever do this LOL.

    I do like the flared fender look, especially that it accommodates wider wheels and tires. It looks like it would perform better on a road course. Also it might look less obtuse if the flares were body color.

    But I wouldn't do it on my Hellcat, but might like it better yet if it were the OEM design.

    I wonder why this guy imported these fender flares. He could have gotten better and cheaper flares from Bushwacker LOL.

    I will state that it was still a work in progress as a disclaimer and I know everyone has their own taste and style. But I guess I'm just a car purest at heart. I've been asked countless times why I didn't go for the wide body Snake. Every time I tell them it just wasn't me. There are other options to get wider tires without cutting panels and bolt-ons. At least Shelby places medal in their wide bodies and makes it look like it could have been a factory option. Or even narrow the rear end to accommodate them with wider rims. His car didn't even look like he put wider wheels on.

    Needs LED lighting on the bolts/rivets securing the fenders.
    Then maybe Ace playing card in the wheels..like on an old Bicycle.
    And what the hellcat, let's add streamers to the door handles as well!
