Get the Right Fit for Your Ride:

Fender flares come in a variety of styles, from low-profile to big and bold. If you’re looking for a sleek, factory look, we offer street-style fender flares that add a shapely look to your ride without adding outrageous width. On the other extreme, extra-wide fender flares redirect damaging road debris and offer enough additional clearance for your oversized off-road wheels and tires. Choose your own amount of coverage with extended fender flares that allow for widths ranging from one to three inches, depending on your vehicle’s specifications. The most popular option is the easy-to-install pocket-style flares that add all the style with none of the damage. The majority of pocket flares also include decorative stainless steel bolts that provide riveted accents for a tough, aggressive look.
