The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  You will need to cut away the kit wheel wells before you can fit these wheel wells.  The detail on these resin wheel wells is very nice indeed.  

These are very nicely detailed wheels wells and once fitted, they will look excellent. 

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.  A list of some of those retailers can be found here.    


I would like to thank Aires for providing me with this review sample.
