Pocket Flares...yes or no

Hey guys. I'm debating on getting full set of bushwacker pocket flares on my f350. Just not sure how it will look on my truck. My truck is two tone and I would get flares painted before installing. Opinions? Pocket Flares...yes or no-1384779669282.jpg

I think they can look really good, or they can look really bad...just depends I. The truck...I personally am not a fan of them...I think they make a truck look to off-road...I prefer a clean street truck look...still can go off road just doesn't look like it was built for that...

x2 Agreed, pocket flares imo only look good on trucks with wheels/tires that have big negative offsets. Looks goofy on trucks with stock wheels/tires/lift when the flares stick out further than the wheels.

I am running 2.5" ready lift level kit with non stock wheels with 35" Toyo AT2. Not big offset but does stick out beyond fenders. Just want protection from rocks, etc.
