Dumb comment. If someones windshield gets broken because fender flares are too small? Guess what? Theyre following too goddamn close!
Not a dumb comment, common courtesy. Not a lot of people have it these days.

I would love to do this as well. Never had a vehicle with tires past the fenders. I'm guessing more dirt and rocks on the side of the vehicles? More damage?
It looks badass but once the mud starts flying you won't see much out of your side windows or mirrors. And, as an added bonus, when it rains, you'll make these cool rooster tails that will remind you to put your windows up.
I'm exaggerating a bit because the wheel won't be exposed outside the body too much, but to your point, ya, expect to wear more of what you're driving in.

So a rock hits your windshield from a vehicle in front of you; hows that common courtesy that the vehicle in front has fenders or not? Common SENSE is more appropriate here. Ever saw a dump truck or 18 wheeler with a sticker on the dump, or trailer stating stay back? Theyre NOT responsible for what happens to your vehicle if theyre in front of you unless say the load was drop and youd hit it.

Whos they? California, Washington, Oregon, Colorado? New York? I assure you, you drive a vehicle with fenders cut to fit 44" tires without flares in Louisiana? Nothing would be done to you. Just as 78mph in a 70mph speed limit, I guarantee you, youll NEVER receive a ticket for that speed unless youre cutting ppl off or some ridiculous notion. Just because it's law, doesnt mean its enforced ;)

Not in my state so you GFY. If someone spits in your yard you flip out dont you? Blame everyone else for your mishaps....
Dude, don't be a tool. Do you legit not understand the common courtesy point of this? So you're that guy that as long as YOU'RE happy, to hell with everyone else huh? Cool. Cool man. Props to your parents. (y)

It's funny that you replied with "Dumb comment" and then proceeded to post nothing but dumb comments.

No fact of the matter is youre a tool if youre following to close to ANY vehicle and get his with a rock. THAT IS A FACT! Right? Regardless of whether or not a piece of plastic is there to protect another vehicle (like as if that actually helps) but if it makes you feel warm and fuzzy. Common courtesy is opening a door for someone. Getting out of the left lane so someone can pass you up. Whats on YOUR vehicle has NOTHING to do with common courtesy. Fenders (if you want to actually believe) are not there to protect 100% of anything. Its more to basically "state" they protect.

So if I want to wear nut huggers, its common courtesy for me NOT to wear them because i dont want you to get upset looking at my crotch? :ROFLMAO:

I don't think you've been driving too long. A tire can chuck a rock pretty damn far without a flare. As if a flare helps, you say? Do us all a favor, don't get into the car design business. Or customer service either. Actually, anything where other people are involved. Thanks pal!

The fender flares serve a purpose, they help stop debris from being shot at the car behind you and protect the side of your vehicle as well. If you put smaller ones on and your tires stick out, I hope your windshield get broken before you break somebody else's.
I got pulled over in MD when I was in high school for having tires on my wrangler that stuck out beyond my flares. Apparently its illegal in this state. I did not know that at the time.
