After seeing the rusty flares on your jeep I am liking them a lot haha I kind of wanted to get 8 inch wide wheels but if I was going to get 33s I would keep the 10 inch wide wheels on it...so im not sure yet

Obviously all you with no fender flares do not live in Utah. You would fail inspection. My tires stick out 1 in from the stock fender flares and I've failed.

Thank goodness there is no such communism around here.

Those Rustys flares don't look too bad at all. With those 10s I think the BW flat flares would be better suited to your Jeep though. Although id ditch the 10s, but to each his own. Jeep looks pretty sharp.

I just snipped the extra metal to the inner fender, making sure to preserve the mount holes, and folded in with a hammer massage. Then I trimmed the flares around my rocker replacement and zip tied from the mounting bolt holes to drilled holes in the flare.

I think I might try and get 8 inch wide wheels, but i kind of wanted to switch to a 33x12.50 when these wear out and i think that 33s look much better on a 10 inch wide wheel, I do go wheeling but not anything too extreme with this, if its that bad I just take my truck because I dont care if i dent that beauty haha

And also since I'm pretty sure I want the rusty flares, anyone that has these want to give any input whether you would recommend them or something else?
