Those are Zele side skirts. I have them on my car. You can buy them through Vivid Racing, Rexpeed, Bulletproof Automotive, etc.

Good luck with them, something about a sticky tire, heavy car and flow formed rims.

An upgrade to cast wheels is a process called Flow Forming. This methodology is also referred to as Flow Forged or Forged Hybrid. The reality is there is nothing forged about these wheels. The name Flow Forged is really a misnomer and shouldn’t be used (but is often used by marketers who want to convey a sense of strength in a wheel).

This process of heat and pressure helps strengthen the aluminum in the barrel portion of the wheel. The cast wheels start out narrow and then spinning discs pull the material down making the barrel of the wheel wider. This process strengthens the barrel of the wheel but does nothing for the cast center.

An oldie but a goodie :
