    any pics of fender flares on a stock k5, or a k5 with the rear wheels not sticking out past the fender?

    long story short, im debating getting fender flares to pass inspection, or just borrowing a set of 31's. The tires would be cheaper, but if the flares would look ok i might go with those anyway

    They are bushwacker. My 33's stuck out enough in the front that they were tossin rocks up the fenders and doors. I bought them from a fellow K5 member

    At first it bothered me. I cosidered spacers on the rear. But saving the paint was my first concern! And it doesn't bother me anymore.

    screwed in on the inside lip of fender and 1 at the bottom of the fender. It came with rivots, But i used black self tappng screws. Thers a rubber seal that rens along the lip to seal it agianst the body.
