Pocket Flares Vs. *New* Flat Flares

Ive done a bit of searching, and couldnt find anything on this, but I need to get some flares and could use some help.

I just wanted to know which flare will give you the most tire clearance and based on opinions of you guys, which flare will be the better bang for the buck. I read the instructions on the flat flares and it doesnt look like you cut that much out, so thats why Im asking.

Ive also heard that the new flat flares are made of a new stronger material.

Youre talkin about the bushwackers right?

I think the flat fenders look alot better apparently theyre built better too. But i think thye offer less clearance since you dont haver to cut as much fender out.

Yeah Im tallking about the Wackers. I thought I read somewhere that if you had the pocket flares that you couldnt use the flat flares, but others have said different. I would much rather have the flat flares over the pocket ones because they are cheaper and look badass, but not if they dont give you that much clearance

you trim less for flat flares, so if you are already trimmed for clearance they wont work.where as the pocket flares will.

Im not trimmed at all. I know that you trim less, but bushwacker says you can fit 33's with a 3 inch lift. I just ordered a 6.5" LA kit so by going from what they say, I should be able to fit 35's with the flat flares right?
