Anyone know what size cut out fender flares work best for a 1980 subaru brat im putting a 6" lift in it with 31x10.5 tires on it and it has some rust around the wheel wells already and rather than try to patch it im just going to cut some of the rust and put fender flares on it if anyone knows what size fender flares work best for minor alteration please let me know.

I cut my fenders out too, and have thought about flares. If I do get around to it...I'll measure the new openings size, then go to a junkyard and find a truck with approximately the right size wheel well, and then just order flares for that model.

^ Outrageous :eek:
I have heard of people using toyota pickup flares, I'm not sure on the years but it sounds like it could work.
