To flare or not to flare

Alright everyone, I have been thinking about putting some bushwacker pocket style flares on my truck. I have been going back and forth, looking at pics, basically driving myself crazy. What does everyone think?

They will add to your look if you paint them black.

I like the look of a set of flares especially if they are a color that really stands out from the rest of the truck.

I've never liked flares because they always look so cheap to me. Too cheap for nice expensive trucks like ours. They never look like they should be there to me. If anything, paint the current fender trim black on your truck, and that will look good IMO. Fender flares will just give your truck the cheap redneck look, unless thats what you are going for, which honestly people do on purpose. So who knows.

Ahh damn see I didn't know... Ya get some flares then!! haha but I like my OEM flares... I personally think they look a lot cleaner. I think if you had some painted black, would look SWEET.
