Hi Guys new to this forum.
Have a 2002 Jimny.

Wanting to extend my wheel arches, as the tyres stick out ever so slightly past the arches.

Wondering if anyone knew any good ways to extend them, links to any appropriate stuff would be appreciated; Will put a close up of my wheel arch below. :)

Also wanted to introduce myself as I'm new to the forum.

From Cumbria just got my Jimny about 3 weeks ago fixed, Crank shaft sensor, replaced front brakes and just some little bits on it.

Welcome to the petrol heads best kept secret B)

To be honest although they sit ever so slightly proud I’m not sure you need extensions? The second pic does look a little more severe but hard to tell.

I can’t offer much in the way of product advice sadly but I’m sure someone will soon.

Was wondering what other people thought about how much they stuck out.
Thanks anyway Young Pretender.
But wanting to extend the wheel arches out a bit anyway, hopefully someone knows some good extensions.

They are about the same as mine and to be honest I'm just leaving leaving as they are. It gives the Jimny a little bit of a Tonka look about it B) :laugh: :laugh:

Should also add welcome to club :) :)

Thanks a lot everyone.
What does everyone think it would look like if the arches were black?

Welcome to the forum. The law states that you shouldn't be able to see the tread of the tyres when viewed from the top of the wheel arch looking vertically down. The bulge of the sidewall is ok but not the running surface of the tread.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny
