Fender Flares with stock sized tires?
Anyone have any suggestions for bolt on looking fender flares for 1500 gmc trucks running stock sized 31" tires ? All of the manufacturers show modified trucks with bigger wheel and tire combo's and I just don't want to make my truck look dinky but it needs something to set it off. Anyone running stock sized tires with flares and have some advice?

IMO i think it looks silly not matter big or tall if the tires are under the flares. If you put them on and got the tires out past the flares i think it would look great .Like my truck look at the sig pic2000 Chevy Silverado 4WD Classic

It takes all kinds. Some like wheels in and being practical ... some don't. There's no right or wrong answer.

No sir there isn't it's all in opinion. I will agree on the mud thing (which i don't mid), the rock chips do suck but that's why I'm rhino lining my rockers.
But yes it's all opinion some like 22's some like 15's some like lifted some liked slammed. It's all personal preference, mine is wide stance makes a truck look mean and aggressive.

I can't show you pictures, because I haven't decided yet myself. On my K2500, I think I have decided not to do the "cut out" flares because my stock type tires would not look good with big flares. So I am considering the pocket flares for it from Bushwacker.
Now on my 89 Blazer, I just got the cut out flares. But i am running 12.5 x 35's on it. I think the flare might cover the tire, which is the look I am wanting. I don't like 4" of flare out past the edge of tire.Mark
89 K Blazer 4" lift 35x12.5x15, warn hubs, cut out flares. Soon to have headers, posi carriers, gears.
2000 K2500 Crew Cab 5.7 285/75R16's. 3" Body lift. Suspension parts being ordered.
Lots more to do on both the trucks

Just my opinion, but if you get fender flares you need to have a lift and big tires. There are many other things you could do to jazz up your ride. Like tali lights or a billet grill something. I just don't think fender flares are the way to go.

Carmantx, I agree and was thinking the same thing, the cut outs are way too extreme. I am waiting for new RBP wheels to arrive and got a set of Geolandar's so the wheels and tires will be beefier, but still stock'ish in size. I hate that massive gap look too.
