How wide are your fenders?

How wide are your fat fenders? I was wondering if I fitted a 11cm wide flared rear fenders and 6cm front from kerscher, what would my 1303 look like!? I have 8x18 and 11x18 porsche turbo 2 rims to go with it.

Here's a couple shots of mine, 4" (10.1 cm) wider front, 5" (12.7 cm) wider rear with 8" and 10" turbo offset wheels.

Nice, very nice, I always love the wide and low look, with big rims! I like those rims you have too.
Thanks for the pictures.

Here is the result, 6cm flared front fenders, 7.5 x 18 turbo twist 2, 11cm flared rear fenders, 11 x 18. Fenders from Kerscher, still need to do an aluminium bracket for the signal light at the front bumper, both bumpers are fiberglass and also from Kerscher. Windshield and door glass to go.

Decided to go with the turbo twist 2 instead of the tt1. Now looking for a roof spoiler to go with, I had the little roof spoiler from C Joe, but I thought it was a bit small, Jeffrey's spoiler just above the decklid is nice but want something on the rear end of the roof. Saw a friend's E91 M3 with a rear lip spoiler at the boot end, thought of grafting it to the top of the roof.

Silver Bullet. Looks fantastic!!!! You look pretty low on the 18's. Are those LED tail lights you have there?

Thanks guys for your nice comments. Still abit of work to be done. Yes I got the led tail lights from CSP. The only thing about the led tail lights are that at other than looking straight from the rear, you wont be able to see the lights! At angled positions cant see the lights. I hope it wont pose any danger to vehicles coming from the rear angle and they cant see the lights when I brake.

The overal dia of the wheels are smaller and think its becoz the aspect ratio is small, thus making the rims on rubber band , looking small. 225/35/18, 295/30/18. cut 3 holes on the back part of the front fenders better holding? hope so! Will put some mesh to prevent flying stones!

If looks could kill, I'd be dead.
