Fender Flares
 
Anyone have some pics of a 06-08 1500 with fender flares, preferrably bushwacker pocket style? I'm thinking of putting them on my black truck and most likely painting them to match. I have 285/65R18 Nitto Terra Grapplers so would it look good or not? Thanks for any ideas!

There's a huge number of pics of those here and other places on the web.

Check the specs on those flares for extension coverage outside the body line, then measure how much tire sits outside your fender with the Nittos on it.

Good looking truck Dozer! Do you have any lift on that or just level?

Thanks! Just a 2" HBS level. I realize you asked for a 1500 and this is a 2500 but the body is the same ether way. Tires are 295/70/18.

I have a 2.5" Rough Country leveling kit on mine with 285/65/18 tires. Only thing I'm worried about is if the tires don't stick out far enough now to look good with fender flares, as in the tires being too far inside the wheel well, if that makes sense.

What offset do the wheels have? My wheels have a -12 and the flares just cover them.

I'm not positive since the wheels were already on the truck when I bought it but according to http://www.aewheel.com/wheels_detail...d=2360&cat=472 it shows -112 with 4.5 backspacing. I've never seen a offset in 3 digits like that so if you know what that means could you explain it to me?

I'm willing to bet that's a type-O. OR they are posting the backspace in mm too. 112 millimeters is equal to 4.409449 inches.

So does -12 offset mean 12 inches or what?
