Yeah I wish you were close too to see how much more room the flares give.

Trying to think if you could measure from the unibody in the wells to the edge of the flares to see how much more room they make. I pulled the **** out of my rear fenders and it'd be disappointing to get flares and not gain that much. I know some of the guys with the Do-luck style front fenders saying that pulled/rolled fenders could fit just as much.

Wish they had 275/35-17 they'd be a better fit for our cars the overall diameter with the 275/40-17 is pretty large (maybe better if had 6spd gearing?) Car sits pretty high off the ground even with not much fender gap. One of the reasons I'd like flares if I could tuck tire and lower the car more (maybe on widebody would give me that? idk) Fronts would give me way more room though.

And my pullz for reference:
