No offense. To each his own , but A wide body front wheel drive car is ricey. It will look sweet but it has no function.

imo a widebody kit will serve a function on a front wheel drive car or any car for that matter... and the purpose is to look nice. i didn't think a wide body kit had any other function than that.

care to enlighten me on what function a widebody kit would serve on a rear wheel drive car?

It would serve the same purpose on a RWD car, if you believe it serves that purpose at all...

A wide body kit on a RWD car woudl allow for the owner to Space the rear wheels out further or put wider wheels on the back, maybe 10" wide... making drifting and drag racing easier.

Usually on a wide body kid, the rear fenders is the biggest area, so it makes a nice transition from front to back from smaller to bigger.

Since the front wheels are at work on a FWD, you would need a larger space on the front than the rear, which would make it ugly. So widekits on FWD would be same as a RWD; big on the front, bigger on the back.
Course this is all guessing.

yep it is all guessing.

i have seen pictures of the kit on my car and i can tell you firsthand that the rear fenders are not wider than the front. all widebody kits are different, so for some that might be the case, but i don't think any manufacturer would ever put larger rear fenders on a fwd car... because that just makes no sense.

ive never heard of anyone running wider tires on the front on a fwd car... people usually run same width tires all the way around for fwd.
