i just have a 215-65-15, on a 2rear/2.5front lift.

what is the easiest, most affordable, but not horor ugly. option to get some black rubber flares on my brat? not just for legal reasons, it would also look BEEFIER.

and some beefy mudflaps that matched visually with the flares.

none of it needs to be HUGE. like i said, im on 26.5 tires, with a 2 inch lift. i offroad, but its relatively mild offroading.

thanks, but no thanks.

that works for a big rockcrawler on 33s, or at least 29s.

it would look really awkward and clumsy on my brat. just wouldnt "mesh".

You can buy bulk stuff that similar to garden edging but not as tall and has some curve to it and a lip for install.. looks more oem. WIll try and google it later but I remember seing some at JCwhitney and such.

you could try using something like a garage door seal. People make crappy front lips for them all the time.
