I put 265/70/17 and 2" spacers on my dually, now my duals stick out 1" to 1.5" past the fenders. Truck looks alot better, stock tires were sad looking. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas or pictures. Ran a search and didn't come up with much. I really like the look of the pocket flares. Thanks for all the great info, this site is great.

Thanks, Ill look the guy up. The 265/70/17s are way wider than the stock 225/75/17s in the front, plus I want to keep the stock wheels. Not a huge selection of dually wheels, unless you want to go to the 19.5s and up.

Looks good Ive got 285s on my old truck and it made a diffrence, but its a 8.1 L gas. Probably wouldn't matter as much on the dmax. May try them on my next set.

They don't make them he took a set of standard flares and modified them to work. If you call bushwacker they will tell you they don't make them. Pm the guy who has theem on dp and ask him what you need to do. Or just buy them and make them work anything is possible if you try. Hell i'll put them on for you bring me your truck.

Where are you located Labman, I might take you up on that. I'm alot better at tearing stuff up than fixing it.
