Tube fenders help

hey guys just joined up here. I have a 98 TJ Wrangler and im wanting to fit tube fenders, first off just wondering which width i would need to cover a 285/70/17 tire on a 8-9" rim? (law here is to have the tire tread fully covered) the sizes i have seen are 3" 4.5" and 6" then my next question is which ones look the best....any pics and opinions? thanks for any help

Your best bet is to get the measurement of width needed after you mount the wheels. That is the only way to be truly accurate

yeah i realise that but cant afford both at the moment and would like to get the fenders first, but theres no point in buying 3-4" fenders if they are not going to work for the tire i ultimately want to run. Anyone have pics of a TJ with 3-4" tube fenders and 285 tires?
