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
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?

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.

That's why if you want to build a "narrow body" - you need to change the wheels to have proper backspace.
Sort of an OEM slab side & Steelies look vs the look of you have big plans to have amazing adventure
Just need proper backspace.
Goal to achieve a "narrow body" that looks even more throwback
Says Suburban nothing to prove.....vs Captain Adventure

I personally like Captain Adventure. Much cooler looking. If I want to transform back to suburbia, I just put my dad bod in my mundane Lexus Monday thru Friday. Let a guy live a little after 5pm and on the weekends. Sheesh.

Again, I love Fords modular design style with the Bronco. They gave us tons of options with this thing!

Right now they offer two different flare options, and I'm sure the aftermarket will take off with the No-Flare Closeout. Driving around town and dont care that the tires stick out? Cool, slap on the No-Flares! Going off road and want the protection of a flare? Sure thing, slap on the Squatch Flares! The new Bronco is a grown-up Lego set, open for interpretation by everyone. I love it.

It will be cool to see all the different flare options at SEMA 2021.
I am sure there will be some pretty wild steel ones.
I dont think the mount points can be load bearing, so probably no steps or shovel / water can mounts

I'm gonna have to be parking mine outside so it shouldn't take long for my fender flares to disappear into the nite, if they do hopefully they will be running away with a load of buckshot in there rear end 😉

I just came here to say this. As easy as it is to remove, I wonder how long until they start disappearing. Either from Bronco owners who destroyed theirs, or someone who thinks there’ll be a Craigslist market for them.
