Can a 4 door Rubicon get away with getting flat fender flares having no lift and the stock wheels? Any pics out there? I'm worried the wheels will look tiny. I'm not sure about 33-35 tires due to it being a daily driver and killing my gas mileage. It's bad enough already! I love the bushwacker flat fender flares!
It depends on the model of flare. Some steel tube flares are narrower than stock, which would look ok, but bushwacker or any flat flare wider than stock imo look terrible unless you are running at least a 35" tire. I'm on a small lift with 305/70/16's (33's) and would not run them, but everyone has their own taste.
After the other jeep i saw in their parking lot last week. I believe those are his daily tires. I don't know him yet but based on the amount of mud on the jeep after the last rain and the tires are the only thing clean.
Spidertrax are the ones most people here use when they want to keep the stock rims and go to a wide tire. The common size is usually 1.5", meaning your wheels will move towards the outer fender by 1.5 inches. Wheel spacers are installed to prevent rubbing, so your stalk wheels won't rub at all.
If wheel spacers are installed correctly and maintained, they are quite safe although some will disagree. You may also have to rotate your own tires as many garages and your dealership won't do it if they see wheel spacers on your Jeep.
There are plenty of threads about this topic, so search some out do some more reading then you'll be more informed on whether it's the right choice for you.
