Default Wraparound fender on a 16" wheel?

my Weld wheels are 16", not 18's like most other custom wheels. I love em cause I know I can get tires anywhere when I'm on the road if I need to.

That said, I would really like to get one of those wraparound front fenders. the only ones out there are made for 18" (and bigger) wheels. I'm trying to picture what it would look like with my 16" wheels... I THINK the radius would be OK (which is my main concern) and it would just show more tire, but without trying it I'm not positive.

Has anyone ever seen one of the wraparound fenders on a 16" wheel ? FBI has a steel version that I really like, I've emailed them about whether it'll work on my wheel but no response yet.

A little hard to see black over black but I have 16's. The rear was repositioned farther away from the tire to keep the front looking tight to the tread. This makes it easier to be driven into a "drive on" chock. About 1 1/2" was trimmed off the bottom so the tilting part of the chock that locks the tire in the chock clears the back of the fender.
