Default Bushwacker Pocket Flares Running 295's

I haven't been able to find the answer yet so this is my attempt. Is anyone out there running bushwacker pocket flares with a 295 wide tire? If so do you have pictures or can you tell me how even the tire is with the outside? Obviously it depends on what offset you are running. I would like to run a 34 inch tire hence the 295. I would like the tire to sit a close to even with the outside as possible. The wheels I want would have a -12 offset. Thanks.

I'm assuming a 9" wide wheel with a -12 offset? If so you'll be tucked under the flare at least 1". Probably closer to 1.25". Hopefully someone will have pictures of what that looks like for you.

You'd be way better off with a set of OEM flares IMO. It will look much better with that set up. Take a look at getting the 2500/3500 flares. They don't come down quite so far on the front which gives them a more aggressive look.

Ahh yes. I remember seeing the thread where you posted that. It definitely is a sick looking set up. I would definitely run the larger tire to make it look right though.

dont know if this will help you or not but here is my 2nd gen with bushwackers with a 285 tire... didnt really like the look of the pocket flares on small tires so i took them off. im running 315's now so just need to spray them in bedliner and then put them back on to see how i like them. heres some pics:




now 315's but no fender flares yet


how far they stick out: (also running a 9in rim with -12 offset)


hope that helps ya
