[B]Paint pocket flares or leave them black?[/B]

Just bought a set of Stampede Ruffriders.(held in place for photo with clamps)
Do these flares look ok just left black?

Planning on some new "black & chrome eagle alloys or moto metals.

I think the chrome/rubber trim on the lower doors should go, What do you think?
Should I herculiner the bottom too?

Thanks
John

just my opinion, but I would spray some duplicolor bad liner on the flares, bumpers, grill, and herculine the rocker panels. with some black wheels, it would look sick!!

I like them the way they are

How much did you pay for those flares, if I can ask?
