Sahara TJ wide flares recomendations please?

I am curently running a 15x7 wheels with a 31x10,5 tires with a -19 offcet, so they bulge out quite a bit from the flares. I am looking in to buing a set of wider fender flares and looking for advice.
I would like to have factory style 6 or 7 inch flares.
So far I have found
Fairchild FC-55254918K7-6
Look good but the reviews here and on Morris 4x4 are not so positive, it seems that they have alligment issues.
Crown 55254918K7-6
Same alligment issues posted here and on Morris, plus some say the plastic is too thin and cracles. One more confusing thing on Morris they are posted as 7 inch wide and on Quadratec with same number as 6 inch. Does anybody know which is the correct one?
Rugged Ridge also as I see from this forum it is the same as Omix Ada same manufacturer and codes. So far the best reviews but they have two sets that seem to be exactly the same 11608.11 and 11608.01. I would have been my choise, but what are the differenses between the two models and why 11608.11 stated that it will not fit Sahara models, what is so different in a Sahara that will not accept those flares?
Xenon XN8300 same issue states that will not fit Sahara. And most expensive from the lot, are they worth it? From the revies it seems they are made from the thickest plastic then all others, but they are also heavier and do not fit right because of that.
Did I miss any option? What would you recomend?

Why not use rims that won't make the tire stick out so far?

Because there are none like that avalible here and it is cheaper to order flares then a rim set from US.
