The HARD Motorsport E36 Sedan Rivet-on Fender Flares are a ready-to-go option, which will allow you to run the wider rubber you want for track days or autocross sessions.
FRONT: Aprox 25mm wider
REARS: Aprox 30mm wider
(flares taper around the wheel arch, so "width" is not the same around the entire arch. Widest point may not be the "top" of the wheel arch.
We used factory BMW E46 330 fenders to create the shape and profile of our flares to maintain that distinctive factory look.
Manufactured from durable thermoformed ABS plastic, so they won't easily break like fiberglass versions. The HARD Motorsport's Fender Flares can be prepped and painted to match, so you have options.
Replacement sets can be purchased in front or rear pairs only if you happen to have a mishap on or off the track. We won't tell. Since these are manufactured in pairs, the cost of manufacturing is the same, so a single flare is the same price as the pair.
Installation is fairly straightforward. These are functional fender flares, so cutting of the factory fenders is necessary to run larger, wider wheels and tires. Modification to the inner fender and fender liner is up to you. We recommend sealing of the rear inner fenders to seal the trunk/cabin from the exterior wheel well.
Fit/Finish: Manufactured from thermoformed ABS plastic, so they won't easily break like fiberglass versions. The HARD Motorsport's Fender Flares can be prepped and painted to match, so you have options.
Some surface irregularities occur due to the composition of the raw materials which can vary. These can be easily sanded out during the prep and finish process. A finish is highly recommended to protect the raw ABS from UV exposure.
The ABS thermoformed parts are easily modified for fitment and customization. Although these were made specifically for this chassis, some trimming and adjustment to the parts is needed for the final fitment for desired results

Modification to the inner fender and fender liner is up to you. We recommend sealing of the rear inner fenders to seal the trunk/cabin from the exterior wheel well. Trimming and adjustment may be necessary to get the final fitment that you require. We leave a bit "extra" around the arch to help the flare keep it's shape.
Our Fender Flare kit includes:
4 unpainted, fender flares (marked for drilling)
1 package of black rivets for easy installation and a clean appearance
Trimming of "lip" along the flare edge may be necessary for some wheel/tire fitment.
Note: 275/35/18 Hoosier R6s on 18x9.5 ET35 Apex Arc-8 wheels are shown in the images.
WHEEL/TIRE: We run up to 285/30/18 rubber on 18x10 et25 wheels on both the front and rear on our E36 for track days or autocross sessions.
**We have run this wheel/tire combo as listed above on our house-car with proven results. We cannot confirm fitment of other wheel/tire combinations that we have not tested. Fine tuning and suspension adjustment may be necessary. It is nearly impossible to determine compatibility with the endless variety of suspension, wheel, and tire combinations that are possible. We'll give you the extra room, the rest is up to you!
HARD Motorsport Fender Flares are made in the U.S.A.!!!

I have 245’s on front and 265’s on rear. This fender flare kit made my e36 bmw look complete
I thought these flares would be more fragile. But just the opposite! They're quite bendable and fitment is nearly flawless! They are also heat gun friendly.
