I ran 37x13.5 Grabbers on stock rims for a minute. The sidewall rubbed the tie rod. Switched the rim to 1" additional offset over stock (can't remember what that is) and they worked great.

Disclaimer: I have Fiberwerx +2/+2 glass, pinch welds smashed, and liners screwed in with self-tapping screws and fender washers. Still has minor rubbing.

Just the front Fiberwerx fenders I'm assuming? Also, what made you go with the Fiberwerx over other options? Stock wheels are +34, so 1" would be like +10 give or take. I'm assuming you probably have 0 offset wheels.

Yeah, just the fronts. They are based in San Diego, so it is pretty convenient. Liners are worth talking about though, I use stock liners and have had a couple ripped out. They are cheap enough to replace though. One major issue is the wiring harnesses are attached to the top of the liner. It is a terrible design decision and I highly recommend detaching them and securing them a different way. You don't want something like a stick ripping out the liner and taking the entire wiring harness with it.

I liked that they sell a matching liner and some other vendors like Boatec didn't. I had my liners Line-x'd since they are just a fiberglass sheet that probably wouldn't hold up over time with rocks and such.

That is rather nice they make matching fender liners. My stock fender liners have already been trimmed so maybe it would be a good idea to go with the ADV ones and get the liners. Are yours the 2" rise and 2" flare? Built in vents or regular?

Do you think it would be better to go with the ADV fenders with the matching liners then? My stock liners have already been trimmed and I was thinking of getting new ones when the new fenders went on, but if I go with the ADV fenders I'd just get the liners to go with those. Thanks for the heads up in the harness, I would definitely re-route them.

Ahh...either way. Both have their advantages. The stock ones, as you know, are a very flexible plastic. That makes them easy to trim and if the tire, rocks, sticks, etc. hit them lightly they'll flex and scratch. Fiberglass doesn't have the same flex as the stock ones. I don't have the ADV ones, but I'm sure their liners fit better and tuck more out of the way, so they are less likely to be hit. Not a big enough difference to stress over. You need to find someone that has gone both ways and see which he/she likes better.

Yea, I definitely get the stock ones will flex a lot better than the fiberglass ones, but I just assumed the fiberglass ones would fit the fenders a lot better and tuck more out of the way so you don't have to cut them down. I just figured the fiberglass ones looked nicer too.

2+2 without vents. The vents can be moved over from the OEM fenders.

My advice would be to shop around for a place to install & paint before you buy them. I don't remember exactly what I paid including the Line-x for the liners, but it was more than the purchase from ADV.
