3 vs 4.5 MCE fenders

Hey everyone,

I know I want to get a set of MCE fenders, but I cant decide on the width. Im torn between the 3 inch and the 4.5. I feel like the 4.5 may look awkward and be too wide. Can those of you that have either post pics so I can compare? Also, what are you using as turn signals?

What is your tire size and wheel backspacing?

If you're running stockish wheels (5-5.5" BS) with no spacers and tires no wider than 11.5", I'd say go with the 3". If you're running 12.5" wide tires and 4" or less backspace, I'd go with the 4.5".

I've also been waffling between the two because I haven't decided whether I want to keep my 5.25" wheels and go with 33x10.5 tires, or get new wheels or spacers and run 33x12.5. Right now I run 32x11.5 which fit just about perfectly in the 4" factory Sahara flares.

Im running 33x12.5r15 with 3.5 backspacing. I know that the 4.5s would be better for me as far as coverage, but im not sure ill like the look.
