Why do you assume that anyone here wants their wheels hanging outside the body? Are you the only person in the world that knows about offsetting tires? Can’t someone just say the fender flares look cheap and don’t want them without all the Nancys chiming in about a nonexistent issue of rocks?Both.
Flares essentially extend the wheel wells.
If you delete the flares you need to get wheels with proper offset so the wheels don't hang outside the body.
It's so weird that so many people here react to flare delete idea - by saying that you will then throw rocks.
If you want to delete flares, it would be short sighted not to change the wheels.
Not just for safety
But also because it would look bad to have wheels hanging outside the body
Also, the fender flares aren’t actually doing much about rocks. Look at the back of any truck, regardless of whether it has flares, and you’ll see a whole lot of tire. If you’re really concerned about kicking rocks, you’d be talking about mud flaps. But you’re not. So why all the posts here about kicking rocks and none about mud flaps? Seems a bit disingenuous.
