Mud Flaps vs Fender Flares?

I have some Toyo MT's with a -12 Offset on my '13 F-250, and i noticed on my old truck after some time the road debris that spit off the tires began to wear on the paint on my quarter panels and fenders.

My question is does anyone have any experience with mudflaps that can compensate for the offset? and if so what brand?
Or is my only way to correct this is to go with the fender flares?

Any help would be great and thank you!

Everyone likes something different but I went with RBP mudflaps, they hangout wherever you decide to install them so you can cover your tire. I would also like fender flares but havnt got to that yet. Also do a search on duraflaps on the forum. theres some great pics of everyone liking those also.

with -12 I think your only option would be flares. I have 0 offset with heavy mudflaps and tried to make it look ok with moving them out but it looks wrong. my truck is filthy all the time and it's just a matter of time till I hit my mirror with a rock. so needless to say i'm going the flare route.

You can get Dura Flap mudflaps in custom sizes. These are the best mudflaps I've ever used. They're very durable and don't sail or tear. They've been through lots of mud, snow, slush, and rain. No issues. They also are available as a drill-less application so you don't have to drill holes in your truck. They utilize OEM holes in the wheel well liner and a couple of brackets. Very well made and durable.

You beat me to it, a buddy of mine has these and swears by them. If I were in the market I would go for these.
