Howdy everyone!

I have been on the search for some flat fender flares. There are multiple types I am currently looking at (currently Bushwacker is looking like my go to) that are varying drastically in price. On amazon there is a set for $180 called Paramount Automotive Black Flat-Style Flare ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C73ICNO/?tag=wranglerorg-20 ). Does anyone have any experience or thoughts on this product?

Let me know what you think!

The reviews on them are very positive. That's what I go by when buying a product. I had some Xenon flat flares and some Quadratec ones too. I just didn't really like the look and sold both sets. Silver Jeep with stock wheels (not mine).

My thought is are you intentionally trying to tuck your tires?

Unless you've the right backspacing the Jeep will look funny with those flares and stock wheels
Didn’t plan on putting them on stock wheels, gonna purchase some flat fenders when i purchase my lift and 33s.

I have the paramount flares on mine. My state is annoying with inspections, the tires cant stick outside the fender flare. with a spacer they sit flush. Tires are 33x10.5

And that's what I mean right there.

The beauty of owning a TJ is how narrow it is. I'd say almost svelte like but it's not very elegant.
That's the point. There's no contest comparing it to a JK/JL/JT.
Creature comforts, extra room, top removing technology, highway manners.....hell you can run 35's with the slightest of lift...33's can run stock.
.............But they're wider and wheeling in the woods inches are golden.

If you're doing a mostly on road Jeep type thing with the occasional fire road then no worries. If you're finding yourself between a tree, a rock and a hard place frequently when wheeling...
inches.....or lack of them....
become absolutely "paramount" lol and I don'tthe brand😎.

If you want a "flat" type look there are now many o' choices with a flat look that don't add more width.

Just something to consider

I have heard some reports of them fading rather blotchy or even rippling from the sun a bit. Those complaints are few tho. To be honest I'll be looking for some flat fenders or flares this summer and they are on my short list.
NY is picky about tire coverage too.

Thank you for the picture and nice clean jeep!

I see what you mean lol.

One of my loves about the TJ is how narrow it is, not sure I like how far they stick out, so something to consider. The build is mostly for on road use, want to hit the trails only a few times a month, so I don't think that will be too much of a problem. I appreciate the responses and will continue to look around for other types that I also like!

He's not wrong. I bought these in a pinch to get past inspection. I had to send the first set back because there was a crack on section that mounts to the tub. They work for now as I have other items higher on my priority list. These are a quick fix for sure.

I know you said you don't wanna cut, but check out MCE fenders. It's a bit more work than just slapping on replacement flares, but they look much nicer, IMO. Many people here run them or have run them.

I do really like how they look, definitely better then just slapping on some new flares. I will have to give them more thought, cutting stuff kinda scared me away from them because if I ever grew tired of them I'm stuck with them. I do see TONS of people on here running them and they always make the jeep look nice and sharp.
