Fender flares are those pressed and formed sheet metal that line your trunk just above the wheels and right below the door. They are there to keep mud, pebbles and dirt from flying off the ground and from sticking on or damaging the expensive coat of your car. It is true that mud and dirt could be easily washed off with soap and water, but they are not good to look at while they are still there, and besides, it is not practical to get a car wash every so often. A fender flare can be especially helpful if you are going off-road with your truck. Harmful road debris such as pebbles, rough rocks, and branches, could scratch your sheet metal, or maybe even the glass of your windows while you are doing dirty work. Replacement windows and new vehicle coat are way more expensive than a trusty truck fender flare that can keep all that from happening.
If you have big wheels, the more important fender flares should be for you, because the bigger your tires are, the greater is the force that will throw off debris on the sides of your truck. Aside from their practical use, fender flares also add style to vehicles. They give you that aggressive off-road look, whether yours be a sports car, an SUV, a pick-up, or a big truck. Fender flares are available for all such types and made to suit their models.
