Wider front fenders

Anyone know of some wider front fenders or flares besides n5, clinched, or 1m front fenders. Thanks!

I've been looking myself. Seems like options are limited.

Custom ones are a good solution also. A good body shop can do it.

Just curious as to why you don't want oem. They seem to be the best bet. Are they not direct bolt on? I'm interested in getting more rubber under my car and have been thinking of this and having metal rear flares made

1M front fenders aren't direct bolt on without at least the front bumper. The bottom of the fenders then won't line up with the side skirts. The 1M parts were designed to work as a whole, front and rear bumpers, fenders, side skirts and quarter panels are all widened to meet up with each other.

Oh cool thanks. My plan is to get 1m oem fenders, side skirts, bumper, rear bumper and make some metal flares for the rear. If I can make everything line up then just do body work on the rear to make it line up to the sideskirts and rear bumper I should be good. Basically I think I'm going to do it all just to run wider tires in the rear. And I don't really want plastic or carbon anything except hood. Thank you

Great plan man. Remember you can run 275 square or 265/285 staggered with the front 1M clip and a trimmed/pulled narrowbody rear.

Are you planning on making the metal flares yourself? Not an auto body guy myself and have been stalking for ages looking for someone who will do a metal flare to match the 1m rear bumper and skirts.

I got a guy who will do it for me at a local shop. He is painfully slow but really good. I need to find him a 1m flare template or the dimensions of some sort. I'm not in a rush, I just emptied the car savings account.... again . Now I have a few months to refill it. He is also doing a stainless 5 gall meth tank for me that fits on the driver side of a 1er and doesn't interfere with the trunk flap being opened.
If he does the flares he would want to make a few sets to sell. He asked me to look into anyone interested.
If I can find the proper dimension I can go on this. By the time I get all the rest of the parts together they should be ready

Treymiller32 Nice find but does the typical widebody kit thing where it doesn't smoothly flare down to cover the tread like factory body styling does.

I'd that's your thing, great.

I've seen a couple people buy those kits on one of the Facebook pages. They didn't end up putting them on because of how bad the quality was. A lot of those aftermarket fiberglass "kits" are like that.
