Flat fender flares and small(er) tires

I love the look of flat fenders, but I've only ever seen them on Jeeps with huge tires, 35"+ or so. Has anybody ever put them on something more along the 2.5" lift/32" tires range?

This is what it looked like after I flat fendered it with 4" lift and 32" tires. Then....of course.....35's came along.

I think the flat fenders look classy. I wish they came in a 4" instead of only in a 6". Does anybody have a pic from the front with the flat fenders? I want to see how much it would cover a 12.5 tire.

That's really clean. My Jeep came with the 6' Bushwacker pocket fenders and I don't like them. I'm sold on the 4" flat ones now. Thanks.

Is there any advantage to having the 4" or vice versa? Is it just what you prefer looks wise?

around here on some of the tighter trails, six inch flares of any kind won't last long. they'll normally get ripped off if they stick out further than the tires. the 4" flares look good, provide the needed coverage and don't stick out past the tires...
