I can pretty much guarantee nobody makes wheel skirts for a Yaris. Of course, you could always pay someone to make a set for you.

Anybody who's handy with fiberglass can make them, really.

I've seen a handful of sets on xBs, but they're pretty much all handmade.

Don't they have to be made precisely in the right shape?

They dont need to be precision machined or anything, if that is what you mean.

Have you seen Basjoos car? Precisely made isn't exactly what I would call it. But, it is more slippery than any production car ever.

RE: Precision made -

Um.. no. Literally almost anything that remotely creates a smooth surface will be better than a donut spinning in a hole.
