From our experience, Craigslist doesn't get as much exposure as eBay for something like stock Fenders. You are targeting rust-belt customers who are looking for stock replacement fenders (body shops, etc).

Tire diameter has nothing to do with coverage from a flare. What matters is the tire width, wheel width and wheel back spacing. I run a 15x8 wheel with 3.75in back spacing and a 33x12.5 tire, here is my clearance with a 4in flare.

Ok thanks that's exactly what I was looking for I'm going to do either a 15x8 or 15x10 wheel with 33x12.50x15 probably end up getting the 6in flare. Do you have an opinion on which width wheel I should get?

I would recommend poison spyder I like there flares and looks much cleaner in my opinion. I have heard that smity build fenders paint wears fast, and they dont line up very well during the install process. I havent gotten mine yet but im going with Poison Sypder XC 3in tappered flares
