Rear dually tire sticks out 4.5 inchs

Hey everyone I'm new to the
Is but I'm having a problem I recently added some 22.5 Alcoas I went with all aluminum rims and the rims are 9 inch wide and tires are 10 inch because of double aluminum I needed aggressive set adapters and now in my rear I have 4.5 inchs or tire and rim hangin out of my rear dually fender ... As cool as it is, I was thinking of getting a flare over the top of my fender flare to cover the wheel any ideas?

Depending on where you're located, you may also have to adhere to regulations regarding how far the tires can stick out the fender.

I'd almost want to look into spacing the stock fender(s) off the box or widening them in the center. IMHO, I think a fender flare on a dually fender would look like poop.

I live in New Jersey and well for the wider fender or even having my fender custom made to be wide, is outrageously expensive ... Later on I will post a picture of the truck

The place you linked had the worst customer service I have ever heard of.

Read this permalink and the thread for a good place I ordered my fender flares from. Plus there's a pic of that it looks like as well.

Rear Fender flares?

Hope it helps...

Also check out the flexy flares on this site. They are the soft rubber ones you see on commercial rigs:

I'm going to go with the flares and flexy flares to cover how much mine stick out.
