Default Flares for 2010 ram 1500

Hey not sure if posting in the right forum or not, still trying to figure this site out.

I have a black 2010 ram 1500 and need some flare suggestion's..

I have a 4" lift and running a 295/60r20 terra grappler, the offset on the rims is -25.. I want a flare that fits just right without tucking the wheel in if you know what I mean?

What I would do is take a 2x4 or other long straight edge and place it flush with the outside of your tire. Then measure back to the fender to see how far your tires are sticking out. From there you'll have a bit more information to make an informed decision on flares.

The next question is, do you want an OEM style flare or a beefier style like the Bushwacker pocket flares? Bushwacker pocket flares add about 2.5" of coverage. I believe the OEM style flares add around 1.75-2" of coverage. If you are going with an OEM style flare I'd recommend the 2500 flares as they don't come down so far in the front which makes them look more aggressive and a lot better looking IMO.
