Flares or no flares?

Well I got my factory flares back from beard. I am leaning towards putting them on, but never hurts for another opinion.

probably not, not a fan of flares on a flareside, however, they dont look half bad. if you get 33x12.50s and 15x10's after the BL then maybe

I'm rocking these tires till they are dead lol. but I will be going to a 15x8 come spring probably so it'll stick the tires out a bit farther. I think they make the truck look a little more agressive.

I think I'm with everyone else, if the tires were wider I think they would look cool, but with those tires I think the flares make them look too sucked in.

Maybe put them on if/when you switch to wider wheels/tires.
