Depends on which rub point you're talking about.

33s on mine with wheels having 4.5" backspacing and I rubbed the rear fenders at full-stuff. Knocked the driver's rear fender off 3 times before getting a lift...

This is what 33s look like without a lift and with stock fenders. I think that with flatties and proper backspacing, you'd be good to go.

cremaley I run Khumo 33x12.5 tires on Rev 50 Caliber 17 x9 " wheels on my 2010 Wrangler with stock fenders and no lift and mine do not rub anywhere.

Rubydak I have them. I run 35" KM2s with 2" lift.

Interesting comparison

tysalem Hmmm... I see a trend in this. I should just keep telling myself that I need to add a new bumper, lift, winch and more to help with the "rubbing". I like it!

PecosRiver I had a bit of rubbing on mine when I put 33's on it, but I fixed that by lifting it a little. And I think my new bumper will help some too. I also believe a winch may help with the rubbing too.

tysalem I believe they do, however I've heard that there can be a bit of rubbing.

JSY I thought 33s fit on stock JKs...

Bushwacker Flat Style Flares

Hey everyone,
I've been looking at these fender flares for a while now because I am interested in putting 33's on the jeep, but I don't want to invest in a lift yet. I've heard that these flares give a few more inches in clearance for the bigger tires.
If anyone on here has these flares on their jeep with 33's and preferably no lift, I would really like it if you could post some photos. Any pics and information is greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
