I was wondering who runs cut out flares and likes them. I was thinking about them but dont know if i really want them, would it look retarded with only a 5 or 6 inch lift and 35x14.5 tires? if any one has pictures that would be great too. thanks

They break really easy, mine are all beat up and cracked. They do serve there purpose of keeping the cops away though so I can't complain.

for street rigs they are fine... dont see much point in a wheelin rig, they are just gonna get damaged. They ain't cheap either. Bad combo in the world of off-roadin', easily broken + expensive.

We've had good luck on my friends rig with flares From Freightliner, they're meant for dumptrucks, sold by the foot, 3" wide, and have a groove you shove the fender in an pin it down. I think it was about $25 a wheel to get it done. So about $17 american? Super durable, its rubber so not matter how hard to rash it, it just bends right back into place. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
