Love any car with creativity and hard work put into it. I get lots of criticism for being different too. But hey, its mine, it turns heads(good or bad), and its functional....

Agreed, not enough rubber for me as well. But other than that, nice job!

  • I expected the liberty walk flares. I like it alot and I also I understand the stretched tire look. What rear spoiler is that btw,I'm looking to go with a full length with body color or carbon fiber look spoiler.

I agree with you 100%. They look 'stick-on' and cheap. Hey, the O.P. asked for opinions. Everyone has one. We don't all have to agree and that is fine. I would never do that to my car.

Definitely would not have gone with superstretched tires as I don't think the tire maker meant for the sidewalls to do that. Either narrower wheels or work out the bodywork to clear wider rubber.

But hate it? Nah, it's good.
This post is 100% spot on, everything I wanted to say.

How was the install process of the no-bolt flairs? Lots of prep work? Cutting original quarters? Looks bad ***!

I hate when people take sports or sporty vehicles then mod them where they can't possibly perform as intended. Yes it looks nice, but there is no way this car can corner with those wheels. The tire profile leaves no rubber under the car, and the wheels stick out past the tires. Those wheels would probably be destroyed the first time you drive it fast on a curve or turn. It's worse when people extend the swing arm on motorcycles. You can only make turns at very low speeds. These are more show vehicles then practical street vehicles. But if that was the intent, then A+.

Kind of torn, and reminds me of the old CA vet craze of moding the old vets for looks alone.


Hence reason for going to a wide body it really about increased handling, braking, and performance, and from the mods I see done to the car, nothing it setting off those meters to show that you increased them much isntead. Hell take the wide back end, and I don't see any duct'g that would increase the cooling to the rear brakes from the start. The fact that the tires look stretched on the rims, don't look like you increased the rear traction as well.

So with the C6 now being on the older side now, no harm or foul doing the mods to change the image of the car for show reason, but don't see the point to spend money on for show when its better spend on High speed road coarse "Go" instead.
