What are they?

3 inch slimline standard design fender flare kit (6 pieces).

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 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.

https://infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/vsb_ncop.aspx

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.
