Tires that stick out past fender flares?

I know fender flares have been beaten to death around here but have a question I haven't found an answer to yet. My tires stick out almost a full 4 inches from the side of the truck and was considering flares. I don't like the pocket flares look and so was considering the extended flares that give an extra 2 1/4 inches of clearance. Does it look bad if my tires stick out past the flares? Advice would be appreciated.

I personally don't like it when the tires stick out past the fenders. The flares will help some, but if the tires are still going out beyond the flares what's the point. That's my opinion, doesn't mean it looks bad just not my style. Now if you put big flares on there with stock sized tires that's just wrong.

I'll go out an take some today. I honestly don't know how people on here get their truck modded and then take pics.... I'm too busy wanting to drive the truck and enjoy it.

thanks ciamcoop for the reply. much of what you said is exactly what i've been thinking.

Do what i did and have a color matched rhino line spray on the rockers and the whole fender flare itself. Makes them look perfect and dont chip ever.

Came out lucky i hate when tires stick out alot, so i didnt put any spacers in them at all. But since they are 37's they tend to be wider than stock so i had no choice. Had them painted and after a year they looked like they had been bird shot with a 12 gauge so i did the rhino line on it all and havent gotten a single chip yet

very nice anderson... I'll get pics up but my wife left my camera at work.

anderson, do you have any more pics from a little farther away at an angle from the front and the side so I can see more of the truck. IT LOOKS KILLER! i'll have to check out a local dealer for that.
