Fender flares

My 2001 TJ sport is in the paint shop getting a new look. I am swapping the factory wheels out for 15X8 (-19 offset) . 32" yokohamas tires. What size flares do I need to order?

I would think you'd want 6" at least. Not 100% sure with your offset. For ref, my 31x10.5x15's are covered perfectly by my 6" pocket flares. On my other jeep with stock fenders and same tire sizes they probably stick out close to 3" from the stock flares...

That's tough to answer.....What kind of look are you after? What kind of flares do you like? Do you have tire coverage laws where you live?

Thanks LI2B.

Patrick, I think we do have the law but I want them covered. I like to take the top off and would like to keep the mud on the outside.

I currently am on stock wheels with the 32" yokos but had to put a 1" spacer on them. I have a 2" budget lift as well. I like the stance right now but the 7" flares I had on it pre accident were outside a little too far. Since Im having to order a new set I figure with the offset wheels I coud get off the spacers and keep the same stance. Not sure though what the difference will be so thats why I figured someone might have an idea here which set I need. I would rather "just" clear the tire..prefer that look. Thanks

I know you already said you want them covered, but for others following this thread, Lift Laws is a great site. I have it bookmarked.
