Just looking at EZ Flares as I have got some slightly wider offset wheels. The rears are fine, but the front is very slightly proud of the body.

Has anyone fitted these to an L300 - the rear look Ok, but the bottom of the front doors doesn't have a lip to attach the flare to, so not sure how I'd secure them.

Here's an install video for info:

And a couple of stock pictures of the door

The other option is some rubber edging trim extrusion, although not sure I can find the right profile

Any other suggestions for subtle 1 inch arch extensions welcome!

Gym mats, the foam type, cut into 6inch strips and sandwiched between the lip of the arch and the mat itself using black silkaflex bond and self tapping screws with oversize washers.

Dead easy to work with, cheap and will take paint....all 4 including intergrated huge mud flaps £25 with the paint, sealer, and fixings.

Once they are on you can trim and contour them to your hearts content, if you hit something with them they squash then regain their form.



Mine have been on for a good 6-7 years now, no issues.

Idea

PS. Yes they do them in PINK.

Just been to have a look at my front wheel arches, thinking you could stick something to the inner arch, but the door overhangs it by a good inch, plus there is already a seal on it. You need a flexible triangular or L profile, with a big enough surface area to stick firmly to the vertical metalwork of the wings/doors, and not go wiggly! Is there anything in architectural/double glazing profiles?

Cheers Yoza - good idea!

Yes Andy - the door is the issue here, nothing to attach to, or I need two different profiles of foam/rubber for the lower arch and the door.

The wheels are only just proud of the body, so don't need much arch.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/152721628031 How about these, Roger? I don't think your wheels stick out any further than mine. As long as the treads are within the body line, I don't think the law cares about the sidewalls.
