Hey guys I put on 6inch pocket flares tonight and they look kind of dumb because there so much wider than the tires. I was looking into backspaced cragar's but all I could find was 4 inch backspacing, is that wide enough to at least make my tires flush with the fender flares. I have 31x10.5 on now.

thanks for the help

I have 31s on with Cragar 352s with 3.75 of back space and BFG ATs and they only stick out about 2 inches from stock flares.. If that helps

You'll be close to the look you want with 4" of backspace...

yeah the fenders hang over the tires by at LEAST two inches, so you think 4 inches of backspacing will bring the tires flush with the edge of the fenders? I thought 3.75 inches would almost not be enough.. I'll post pics tomorrow for reference and some opinions.

thanks again

i might be reading this wrong, but you might be confused...

the lower the number - the wider the stance

I run 33 1250 on 3.75 and they stick out about an inch on my 6" pocket flares.
No option to step up to 33's.

4" BS is perfect for 6" fender flares.
