2005 to flare or not?

I ran across some silver factory fender flares for my truck, but I am not 100% sold on the look yet.

What do you think looks better flare or no flare?

yea your truck would look good with some bigger flares. If you keep those I would paint them white.

Thanks for the responses. I should have added, that if I stick with them, I will paint the upper bumper silver.

Here are the options that I have thought of so far.

1. Leave alone.
2. Put flares on and paint the upper bumper silver
3. Same as above but paint two tone on the rocker panels.
4. Paint flares and two tone to match the black/grey upper bumper panel.

Like I told ya in meadow dude...paint the bottom of the doors to match the flares.

Where mine is gold...I think it'd look sick.

I'm liking the flares
