Personally, if they were, at least, OVER 6 1/2 inches, yeah I get it. Round it up, but 6 1/16, Ummm.......makes ya wonder if he stretched them to get the measurement. And, it's obvious he knows they are definitely not 7 inches (or even close for that matter), I'd wonder about his credibility. After looking at this sellers track record, which I always do, the complaints swing more towards the legitimate side. Sometimes the complaints are thing like the color wasn't what it looked like in the picture, or something stupid like the post office left me a note I didn't see for a week. But, in this case they all look like legitimate issues with quality or item description. Truthfully, I wouldn't personally buy from them.

My flares, that I got off Ebay were about 7" I had to buy them to cover the wheels because I got a ticket. Stupid cali laws.

I also got the yJ flares, with the TJ rears, you have to cut the back of the rear wheel opening to match the TJ, it gives you a bigger wheel opening, which is perfect for extending the wheelbase using Waggy springs.

When they say 7" it is mostly approximate, the 7" is a guide. I bought mine over 3 years ago, from a different seller.

Ill post up a better pic tomorrow, its dark now.
