My flares are a good 4" wide, if not 5". They are cutout style and required cutting about 2-3" of fender out. With a only 31" tire I do think it might look like its"wearing a skirt". I have 37s on mine and I wouldnt want any smaller. I have the room for 42s!Following up on the OP's post, we're in the same boat with our '94 and I found these on eBay:
Black Textured Pocket Bolt Fender Flares 92-96 Ford F-150 F-250 F-350 Bronco | eBay
The specs say they'll add up to 2" additional coverage and I'm wondering if that will be too wide and make it look like the pics @BigBlue 94 posted. The plan is to cut out the rust on all 4 openings and mount the flares above the "flare" of the fender. We've got BFG A/T 31x10.5's on stock rims. Do you think those flares will look OK with the current tires or will it look like it's "wearing a skirt" as was stated in another fender flare post? I've thought about spacers if needed, but I've been advised they will put stress on...something...and cause it to wear out prematurely.

A 2 inch spacer is at the large end of acceptable. Anything bigger will put too much stress on the BJs.What would be considered "large"? If the flare adds up to 2" of coverage then a 2" spacer would fix that.
You wouldnt need new tires. You would need new wheels with an inch or so less backspacing. Thats why I am not opposed to "smaller" wheel spacers. As far as the BJs and scrub radius are concerned, a 4.5" BS wheel with 2" spacer is NO DIFFERENT than a 2.5" backspace wheel. The difference is more fasteners that can potentially fail.
