Re: What would U do??

need to get a picture of the offset on the tires, so we can see how far your tires stick out from your fender. I like the look of bushwacker flares but looks stupid if you tires are inset a lot.

Ditch the stainless trim and go with some color matched or whatever color 05 up flares.

I think it looks fine, maybe take em off and leave it how it was from the factory. I like when the tires stick out an inch or two. Gives it that aggressive look.
