thanks,
but already have them, the L-5 flares don't cover the rear of the tire even with the splash guards, looking for something a little more fuller.

I just modified a set of C6 Z06 factory flares to fit my C5. I don't have a picture but the application was so sweet!!! Do a search in the general section under C6 fender.

ACP Corvette, otherwise know as Corvette Race Bodies. They make pieces that Lou G has used on his World Challenge Corvettes that cover the entire rear wheel. These are truly race inspired for proper aerodynamics much like the C5R & C6R pieces. All Business, available in Carbon Fiber as well

Then you might need a different rear facia too.

I have the 3/4" flared ACP fenders and SPWCGT rear facia with molded 1" spoiler.

I run 18x13" rims ( 3/8" spacer on longer ARP studs) with 18x335/30 Hoosiers. Tires are almost 14" side wall to side wall.

I like the look of those factory splash guards. Were they hard to install.
Did the have to be modified.

OEM ones absolutely have to be modified. the plus side is they only cost about $50 shipped.

aftermarket ones do not have to be modified. the down side is they cost about $200 w/o shipping.

OEM fenders are much more expesive then that.

When I did my fender flairs I think the ACP ones were less expesive then the OEM fenders. Not by much but $20 or so.

That was back in 05. Noe that did not count all the prep work that was needed. Jell coat, sand, jell coat, sand, primer, sand, paint. Mount, blend paint to match.

Any after market body parts are not bolt on and go. They all need some body prep work.
