I need wider flares.

Upped the wheel size to 15x8 with a 3.75" BS. Couldn't find anything closer to the stock 5.5" BS for this particular wheel so they stick out a bit. Any opinions on these flares? Good price? Can I find cheaper yet durable flares? I heard Smittybilt are ****tybilt so I'll probably stay away from those. How are these Rugger Ridge flares?

I just put a set on my jeep. The rugged ridge ones are not bad. Your going ot have to drill some stuff out on them. But they are well worth the money.

I'm running these. Me like. Not brittle, just enough flex to sustain some beatings w/out cracking. 7" sounds wide, but they cover all but about 1/2" of my tires.
