Has anyone purchased the off brand fender flares off ebay? Just wondering what kind of quality they are and how well they fit. Im not sure which style I will be getting yet, the smooth ones are about 150$ and the pocket style are about 250$ Any sugestions one which style would look better? I will also be purchasing wheel spacers to give it a wider stance look.

I would go smooth. I like the pocket if you have a wide aggressive tire but smooth looks better in my op on a truck with normal tires. I wanted pocket flares but waiting for the lift and 35's with new wheels and a neg offset to push them out. For now I have been looking more toward a smooth oem since I am only running a 285/60/20 with a +12 offset wheel

If it helps I am going for the aggressive look with my truck and would go with the pocket style. At the moment I have stock 20's with 275/60/20 tires but plan on getting 35" nitto trail grapplers when I replace my tires down the road. As for quality I think a friend of mine got the smooth style and they seem to be holding up well. I think they they're held on by 3m double sided tape.

Yeah, usually some 3M double sided tape and with some applications, they are even screwed in on the under side of the fender. My advice with 3M tape, clean both surfaces VERY well. And when you've done that, clean it again. Both surfaces have got to be almost sterile or you'll have problems later with the fenders coming free.
