What are they?
6 inch standard X-Terrain design fender flare kit (6 pieces).
6"side wall height
These provide a maximum of 30mm coverage at the top of the wheel arch, then they taper back to the panel.
The rear flares mount using all the existing bolts and clips in the wheel arch and on the mudflap. Then pick the end piece of red tape covering the adhesive strip and pull up a small section only. Once position is confirmed, remove the adhesive strip for the top and apply firm pressure along the edges, gliding a clean rag along.
The front flares require the rear section to be mounted first. Mount it using the mudflap bolts, clips and additional clips in the inner guard. Then align the front section with the rear at join for front bumper/panel. Once aligned correctly, mark the 2 holes with a marker for where the additional x2 inner guard mount clips are to go. Make sure it is the correct position, then drill the 2 holes, mount the clips, attach the front section with the clips and align the front section with the rear at the bumper join. Once happy with the position tighten screws and pick the end piece of red tape covering the adhesive strip pull up a small section and use that to pull the remaining covering tape away. Apply firm pressure along the adhesive strip edges with a gliding motion on a clean rag. Allow up to 24hrs for proper adhesion to occur.
When fitting the rear flares, it you have the lower tub spoiler behind the wheels (like on the X-Terrain).
You will need to trim them back to suit the flare or vice versa pending your preference.
If fitting to X-Terrain:
Allow some time to remove the standard flares as this can become time consuming to remove and prepare the area for the new flares.
All kits are made from quality ABS material. They are built big and strong to help cover those large wheels with excessive poke. Not only do the off road design flare kits look tough, but they also provide great protection against rocks, sticks and all sorts of debris flicked up by the wheels on and off the road.
STICK ON FLARES – The legalities for Australian 4WD vehicles
Occasionally we receive inquiries about our flares such as:
- Are flares illegal?
- Can I just stick the flares on with 3M tape?
- Are the flares too wide to pass a pit inspection?
So we've done some research and found some info on the Government website “Infrastructure & Vehicle Regulations” to answer these questions accurately and provide you with the necessary documentation to supply to customers if required.
The link above is for a document named "National Code Of Practice For Light Vehicle Construction & Modification".
The relevant part of the document is Section 4.3.3 Mudguard Flares
Flared extensions may be added to original mudguards. There is no restriction on their
design or size, however, the new section must be securely fixed, the ends tapered
back to follow the body line of the vehicle and the exposed edges must have a radius
of at least 5mm.
So the answers to the above questions ?
- Are flares illegal ?
- No. "Flared extensions may be added to original mudguards"
- Can I just stick the flares on with 3M tape ?
- No. "the new section must be securely fixed"
- Are the flares too wide to pass a pit inspection ?
- No. "There is no restriction on their design or size"
Another important aspect to consider is insurance. If a stick on flare comes off while driving and causes an accident, insurance companies will be quick to use this as an excuse not to pay up.
