Have tried the Aussie suppliers (EGR) for these Flares painted, but they dont do the Chilli Orange colour! Have now seen some on ebay from Thialand painted for $650 Delivered & they have the Chilli Orange colour (but these don't use the original holes, you need to drill in the guards!)..... :( ...Has any one bought these? if so comments would be greatly appreciated..... ;) ....cheers.

Why not the car is made there as are a heap of aftermarket parts. Are the EGR ones made there or china like most of there stuff? The genuine Mazda bar is supplied by EGR and made in china.

Think it was more the drilling thats the problem. EGR flares use factory holes.

Nice to see some different mods happening around the place and people willing to try some more offset wheels.
What sort of lift do you have at the moment?

Regards Josh
I have dobinson rear springs with snake extended shackles.
And dobinson front with milled down strut spacers.
Gives me about 4 inches in the rear and about 3 in the front.

The sidewall of the tyre is inside easily. The tread is back further.
Does not hang at all. 315 would still fit with no hang but it would have to be a small 315 and not a big one. BFG all terrains are a small 285.

The second and third photo is the front.

Hi tim,
Just wondering what sort of spacers you had on your standard wheels as I am thinking of the same sort of thing to get what I want.
The trouble i've found is the centre bore on rangers are small compared to the spacers bore. Did you worry about that?
Thanks
Josh

Does the front mudflap fit back on with the flares fitted ? I've seen a few photos from different types where the mud flaps are still behind the flares .

The center bore was not the correct size on the spacers.
I'm going to have a go putting the front mud flaps on soon.

I did have a small vibration on take off.
I rotated the center bearing bracket and it disappeared faster than a fart in a fan factory.

Well i'm glad it disappeared that fast haha
I havn't really noticed a vibration on mine...maybe I'm just not observant :p
So are you happy with your lift? no problems?
And how long did you run spacers for?

Cheers Josh

Had the spacers in for over a year. They where locktighted in and I checked them for tension a few times.
You will only get the vibration when the rear is lifted over 50mm
I am very happy with my lift. Been in well over 1.5 years and have not had any problems.
Makes a big difference to the truck.

Hello, specifically which tire model is?
I gather that may be American Racing Baja 16 "x 8" Polished 6x139.70 Offset = 0 Backspace 4.5 Center Bore = 108. Am I right? Greetings from Argentina

Ok, thanks Timothy22222. Sorry but clarified that they were up 17. "Center will be 108? Since the truck is 93.1. Was use some kind of supplement or simply if the shaft is a little bigger than the hole in the tire is equal? Thanks

I have been considering the EGR flares as I think they look good and better than the larger ones that I have seen with the studs around the outer rim. I also like the idea that with the EGR flares there is no drilling on the guards to fit them.

But while I understand that they are attached to the existing inner guard holes I was wondering what keeps them firm against the outside guard considering there are no new holes. Is it that you have to use silicone or how are they attached?

No silicone just magic.

Abracadabra.
Seriously, there is a rubber strip applied to the edge of the flare. This strip helps the guard seal. There are clips that clip the guard to the body and it uses the existing inner guard holes when the clips are on and the plugs in it applies pressure to the top of the flare against the body. Works well they are not loose in anyway.

Thanks Tim. That sounds like it would work well. I really like the idea of not drilling the guards. They look good on your truck.

Finally got round to fitting EGR flares today. Fairly easy process apart from attaching rubber strips to the flares was annoying to say the least. Will look at reattaching mudguards later.
