I was thinking of changing over to some different wheels... 17x8 but a 25mm offset. This would push the wheels out past the fenders (according to the wheel offset diagram posted by another member).

I remember someone used to sell wide front fenders... can't seem to find them anymore.

Any vendors out there, or members who might have a set for sale?

Thanks!

Nope. Not from selling.

Archie's wide front fenders eliminate the belt line... I won't be doing that.

Is the Fiero warehouse still in business? That website doesn't seem to be working for me tonight..

I think Doug's website is down. Contact Sage on here. He makes the parts for Doug. This is a pic from years ago when I did a rough mock-up with his wide fenders. You can see how the stock lace wheel is tucked under:

Don't know about Doug's website, but yes, he/we are still in business. You can try emailing Doug here: dmkfiero@ovis.net (all orders have to go through Doug/Fierowarehouse)

The short answer to your original question is, yes we can still make the wide fenders.

Keep in mind, there are different "wide" fenders. The ones Archie sells are his own design to be part of his wide body kit, but obviously can be used alone. They do however, as you point out, eliminate the side trim.

The one's that IMSA shows are from the IMSA wide body kit, and would require some mods to either the fenders or the rest of your car to "properly" match, then there are the IRM wide fenders, which as far as I know, are only offered through Fierowarehouse. They are exactly like factory stock fenders in every way EXCEPT the wheel well area is an inch and a half wider than stock. I'll look through my old pictures and see if I can find a comparison shot, but just put a new puter in service and still getting used to it (I really don't like windowz 8,.1!) At any rate, as I said, they will allow the coverage of wide wheels/tires while still looking "stock".

To me, it's one of those type mods that you really don't notice right off. Your brain knows there's something different, but at first, you just can't put your finger on what it is. Only the portion over the center of the well is an inch and a half wider, tapering back into the stock configuration at the bottom of the well.

Hope that helps a little, and I'll look for the pictures later. Can't promise anything, and maybe Doug has some pics readily available showing the comparison between wide/stock fenders.

Here's the only pics I could find on this computer. They are two comparison pics, one with the stock fender (the yellow), and one with the IRM wide fender (the black) kind of hard to get the full effect of the look from just this angle, but you can see that the wide fender is much further (1 1/2") out over the tire than the stock, and like I said, these were the only comparison pics I've got.

Stock:

Wide:

Hope that helps.

HAGO!
