    Hi all...I am currently running 265/75/r16 Nitto Grapplers with Spidertrax on my 2012 Double Cab Prerunner...I like the way those Bushwacker Pocket Flares look but I am not sure if it will make my tires look too small...

    Your opinion is greatly appreciated...

    OP did you ever make the switch? The pocket flares provide more tire coverage then oem. I'd bet if you swapped out the oems for pockets, looking from the front or rear your 265 tires would look slightly more 'burried' in the wheel well then before.. Anyone have any before and afters?

    Not a great pic. I have pocket flares and 1.25 spider traxs. Sticks out a little bit

    Nice truck Pat! Would you agree that without the spider trax the pocket flares would stick out further than a set of 265 or 275 tires?
