How are these flares attached to the car?? What i am mostly worried about is the back fenders. I have my fenders rolled to allow for 20's in the rear!! So how do these bad boys connect to the bottom of the fenders (the wheel well area)?
Thanks

I'm not sure how the R-Spec look like, but we folded my fenders outward to create a shelf to attach the flair to.

I have the R-Specs and had to cut out my rear fenders to fit my 19s. The R-specs had to also be shaved down to fit the contour of the shaved lip. The R-Specs get screwed into the lower section of the wheel well using mostly factor mount points. I did drill two more holes along the wheel well just for extra support. I used very small screws that would just fit in the remaining wheel well lip. also included in the kit is 3m body molding tape that holds great. Same stuff that comes with the L-Tuned kit to hold on those panels. I haven't had any problems and its been on for about a month now. E-mail me if you want some pics or if someone wants to host some pics with this thread I can send them to you.

so I guess if u have rubbing problems u can't roll ur fenders once the flares are on?
You would be correct because the flares are fiberglass and you can't roll them. You would have to remove them roll the fender and grind down the flares to match the new shape of the fender lip. You might be able to just grind down the fender and flare at the same time but might take a chance of messing something up.

K. since my fenders are rolled is it possible that I can get the r-specs installed without any problems??
Theres no problem installing the R-Specs after your fenders have been rolled. You would just trim the lip on the r-specs that extends into the fender well to match how much clearance you need.
