Fender Flare cutting, will my tires look too small?

I have a set of 33's under my stock height tj and going to install the RC 3.25in lift this weekend. Can I do that and either cut the flares or jump to the bushwacker flat style flare without the tires looking too small? Pictures anyone?

With 33"s they won't look to small, but everyone has a slightly different perspective of what they think looks good/bad..but you will be fine if you trim.

I trimmed my stock flares up 1" and I have 4.25" Zone combo with 33's.

That looks good. I don't like stock flares when they are cut all the way up to look flat.

Thanks and I agree. The nice thing about trimming off only 1" like I did is that they retain the stock flair look, get the extra clearance, but are not super obvious that they are cut.
