    I'm bumping up to 35x12.50x15 on 3.75" BS

    Anyone know exactly how far OEMs are supposed to stick out? Trying to figure out if it's worth getting some jungle/bushwacker flares.

    Also, can the rear flares (both OEM and aftermarket) be 'stretched' to accommodate a tucked 35"?

    Stock flares only add about 1". I have jungle flares which add about 2.5". I can't speak for the others but you would not be able to stretch the jungle flares at all. They are made of very stiff fiberglass with very little flex - so much so that installing them is a PITA as it is very difficult to get them to form to the contours of the body panels.
