Fender flares

Hi,
Is there any way of widening the fenders to accept larger tires?
Thanks,
Tim

I have looked at the eastwood product and iam wondering if that device would work on a 928 because of the flat spot on top of the wheel opening, Eastwood product only seems to work on circular wheel wells

The Owners club purchased one as a loaner tool. Several folks have used it.

I was able to make the eastwood fender roller work on the 928.

You have to work on a few inches at a time adjusting as you go.

However, the flange will not fit on the 5 x 130 mm hole pattern.

An angle grinder with cutting disc makes quick work of the mod.

My first question would be to what model year and for what purpose?
