How deep is thy wallet?

In seriousness though, do you also have a lift?

No lift at this time, an probably wont do much in the lift department for awhile, just gonna make it have a real aggressive look...

33 or 35. I'd say if you just wanna buy the flares go 33. With 35s you have to start upgrading various components. For a more aggressive look I'd say buy some wheel spacers for a wider stance.

I'd stay with a 33". 35" would still be stuffed

33x12.50x15 with 3.75 backspacing will give you a nice stance.

That's what I was thinking... With the fenders and rocker guards wheels and tires should look pretty good
