Purchasing Fender Flares

Hey guys I want to get your opinion.. I figured since my truck is 'stock' looking i would get smooth finish black flares and leave them unpainted.. I found the best price on ebay. Let me know what you think.

Take a look at Prestige Fender Flares.

I have a set and I love them!

They are black textured, but they really look like all the black plastic stuff on the truck.

Since they are textured, no need to paint them.

See in my signature pic below...

most of the ebay, generic flares are prestige.....they fit and looks just as good as bushwacker.

Nice, $245 shipped is the cheapest I've found them.. Sounds like my best bet.. They sold out of textured but I think black smooth plastic would look good on my black truck.. I think they would blend into the paint a little better than the textured..

Nope, most of the ebay flares are cheap junk.

Prestige Flares are not junk.

Their materials are the same if not better than Bushwhacker and they don't fade.

Their pocket-style bolts are corrosion resistant and will not rust.

They fit better than Bushwhackers because they go over the factory body line, which is why I chose to go with them instead.

So unless it says "Prestige" it's not.

Well I went with the ebay flares, the seller had all great feedback with his flares so I decided I would go for it. Also I had a 10% off ebay motors coupon if I purchased the item with my smart phone. So my total came to $220 shipped. I feel I couldn't go wrong..
