Those of you that offroad often may be able to tell me what to do.
The rear tires aren't tucking inside the wheel well. It looks as though they will sit on the tires. Can I remove the fender flare easily for when I go offroading or is there another fix?


Thats just a 13" stump in the yard. But from what I can tell my rear will sit on the tires if I go higher.

I have 33's 285/70/17. I could get a narrower tire but that would take away from the look, and we don't wanna do that. For all I know this may not be a problem, I am not a professional or even experienced off roader. However I do live in the country and drive all over the place. But in the future I am looking at hitting some actual trails. Just trying to get ready for when I get the chance to go.

Hey Luk, find us a two footer and take some pics flexing! My money says they clear. Do those rims have 4.5 inch backspacing? You might have to go back to the stock offset.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

A little rubbing doesnt hurt anything. I think you are fine.
