Default Mud flaps

So I just got this 2013 ram sport 4x4 a week ago and was wondering what everyone is doing to keep the splash from the tires from coating the sides of the truck. I was looking at bushwacker flares but they only extend out 1.75 inches. My tires are 275 and they stick out farther than that and the winters I'm putting on are BFG 285's. Probably a third of the tire will be out side the wheel well. Whats out there to keep the splash down?

Well, you're looking at either mudflaps (I have Weathertechs and I like them) or for the larger tires, probably going to a full fender flare with a mudflap. My flares are OEM with the Outdoorsman but there are a few threads here on flares...

- 2500 flares on a 1500

- Fender Flare Question

- OEM laramie fender flares

That should get you started...

I put on the OEM style flares, and OEM mud flaps for flares. I live on a mile long gravel road. no issues, and have room for larger tires.
