|97TealJ||I have the 7" flares on my 97 with 15X10's, 3.75 backspace and 33X12.50 Toyo MTs. They're right out at the edge, but still covered.|

|DavidW954||There are all kinds of parameters. Distance from wheel, percentage of circumference, etc! It's all in legal speak too which never helps. The main rule is that if you look down from directly above, you must not see any tread. Sidewall and wheel is sort of OK, but even then it can only be about an inch visible.|

|DavidW954||Thanks everyone. Looks like these are the way to go. I'd prefer not to have to, but the Police are pretty uncompromising over here with any kind of modified car so I don't want to be getting pulled over every time I drive the thing. I'll be importing from the US too. Prices over here are ridiculous. Thanks again.|

Stock Rubicon flares before
7" flares after
Like I said mine are 33x12.5 and the backspace is 3.625" on the classic locks. The wheels with 4" backspace will be fine.

32X11.50X15 Cooper STT's on 15X8 wheels with a 3.75" BS on factory non-Rubi flares. Looks like a 6" flare would do fine.

|BLK00TJ||My recommendation would be get different wheels with more appropriate back spacing. I regret mine.|

|JRoweMDN||I have the MT Classic locks with 33/12.5/15 trail Grapplers and with a 7" flare I get just a bit sticking out so the 11.5 should be well covered.|
|11-21-2012 07:55 PM|
|Wheel2Work||The 7" flares will completely cover the tread of a 33x12.5" with 4" of backspace... you should be fine!|

Help with fender flare coverage please
I'm looking at MT Classic II 15x8 with Cooper STT 32/11.5R15. I know the MT wheel has less backspace than is ideal but choice is limited over here unfortunately and they do look good!
My question is whether a 7" fender flare will provide full coverage of the tyre. It's pretty strict here and basically the tyre can't hang out the flare. Does anyone have this setup?
