Full steel fenders

Does anyone make steel fenders that match the same profile of the stock ones? All I've seen are bobbed, and I get why they're made that way, but I'm looking for more tire coverage w/ the added strength of steel. Thanks.

Poison Spyder Crusher Flares come in steel steel and a standard width. I have standard width aluminum and its good tire coverage. Click image for larger version

ACE makes a wide version that I believe offers a lot of coverage. I think Xenon also offers a wide version in their metal flares.

Another big fan of the Metal Cloaks. Not sure about suggesting em for tire coverage, but damn they're great fenders!

Any pictures of straight on the tire? Or from above the fender/tire? It is hard to tell about tire coverage in the angle shots. Thanks!

Thanks for the pictures!!
Do you have spacers? My problem is I cannot have any tread sticking out from under the fender here.

Thanks again!

No on spacers but aftermarket 15" wheels with 3.75" back spacing. That does make a difference and pushes it out.
