Aftermarket Fender Flares

Hey All! Looking for some advice on aftermarket fender flares. I want to put a set of rivet style flares on my 2011 but most of the ones I find on the internet have a 3" or greater tire coverage. Does anyone know of any that would only have about a 2" tire coverage that won't break the bank like the Bushwacker brand?

Keep looking. I just went with "non rivet" looking 2 inch OEM flares. Helps a little bit with tire splash.

I have the 2" oem flares on my qc that do pretty well. I had bush wackers 3" rivet flare on a truck years ago. Took some cutting and of course drilling. Once done they can never be removed.

The OEM's will definitely give you the best fit and finish IMO .

Agreed, and without damaging the fender.

I have oe style by Stampede, shown in pics.

Here's an option: https://www.amazon.com/Tyger-Auto-TG...lares+2011+ram

4/5 stars avg with 15 reviews. Seems to be decent quality product.

thanks for the info everyone. I actually looked into those flares that puller linked to and I don't know that they would work well on my truck. I think they would stop short of the front bumper by the headlights on my version. Otherwise they look like what I am wanting. It's not been a very easy search without spending a ton on the ones that I do find.

Their stock photos show HD trucks even though the part says it's for 1500 so I think ordering the part for 1500 trucks should be correct and fit well. Amazon has a really good return policy so if they don't fit you're out very little if any
