Default Thinking about losing the Flares.

Been thinking about ditching the fender flares. I feel like they over power the look of the tire and wheel My tires shrank when I put the flares on

I paid about 250 for them and about $305 to have them painted. I'm thinking $400 or $500 is a fair price to ask for them.

What do you guys think?

where the heck did u get flares for $250? maybe it's the style I was lookin at but those things aren't cheap!

Uhm...I like them on your truck, but yes the tires/wheels looked way bigger without them. Your paint will hate you if you take them off, so that's up to you and how much your care about/take care of your paint. I gave up on mine, fine scratches ALL over behind the rear tire. And tire shine? forget it, all over my mirrors and side of my truck as soon as I drive off.

You gotta let the truck sit with the tire shine on it for 1-2 hours

I think the flares look good on the truck.. The only problem with taken them off would be that your black paint will be put through hell and back very fast.

Ok not $250 lol. I just looked them up again and they are $275

Yeah that's why I'm torn between keeping them or losing them. I think I may get some smaller flares.

that's still not bad at all.
I say leave them on. Your truck still looks beefy as hell and really good.
