"Universal" means fits all cars, or at least most!!

They come in 3 sizes..

Just like skirts, it is a matter of taste. Skirts look good on an EM, but not those flares.

Better get used to it, the youngsters quite often want to change things. I think it looks kind of good, looks like it'll turn a corner.

If those flares are to your taste, then go for it. It's your money, and your car.

I think the flares look great but need be combined with wider wheels or ones that place the wheels farther out. So if you use wider wheels you probably need to cut away the fenders some. Now we are getting into some lasting changes. Plus the wider wheels may put more stress on the outer wheel bearings if they have a different offset.

For what its worth, on my 65 I had the rear wheel openings raised about 2". That accommodated the big tires I wanted to add. With a taller profile, the tires looked perfect. No gap and no rubbing. That was G60-15 tires back in the day, before low profile tires were easily available. I personally, only like flares on a race car. On the street, it looks like cake frosting unless the right/real wide tires are used. Just MO though. If you do use the flares, please post pictures. I would like to see a modern version.

I have a set of the flare/rock guards that clarks sold/sells available for a LM if anyone is interested. They are the ones that were used inconjunction with the spoiler and a side skirt. But can be used stand alone if I recall correctly.
