I would be careful how far your tires protrude from your flares. Some States have very stringent laws on the matter.

Oh God, I see you already taped them off. You are never, ever going to be able to peel that super adhesive tape off. The only other option would be to cut off the part of the flare that is taped off.
Sorry to tell you but you gotta do what you gotta do here. Start cutting and don't look back.

I don't care what the end result is. This is enough to justify it!! (I'm hiding the phone from my wife so she can't see this right now...)

Oh good. I hate seeing people "fixing" things that don't need to be fixed before they fix the things that do need fixing..

Glad you posted this because I was having reservations about doing it.
I don't think I like the trimmed look either and am going to stay with stock until I can afford aftermarket Metalcloak or similar.
