Give Your Vehicle a Functional Style Upgrade
Most new truck owners ask these questions: What are truck fender flares, and do I need them? If you are in the market for a new truck or would like to give your current truck an upgrade, we strongly recommend that you consider installing fender flares. Fender flares are an aftermarket accessory that will become an extension of your truck. They can be fitted directly over the wheel well and are usually contoured to the body lines of your vehicle’s make and model.
Here are the two main reasons to install truck fender flares:
1. Enhance your truck’s design and style. There are many different options of fender flares to achieve the look you desire for your truck, ranging from more aggressive and rugged to sleek and low-profile. Adding fender flares is an easy modification that will give you an instant change.
2. Protect your truck’s exterior. Fender flares prevent the wheels of your truck from throwing up mud, rocks, sand, liquids, or other road debris. Without any protection, as debris continues to hit your truck, the surface of your vehicle will be damaged. Flares will keep your vehicle cleaner as well as protect its exterior paint.
Fender flares are available in many different styles. Some are paintable to match your vehicle’s paint color while others are black. Pocket-style fender guards are flexible and maintain their style over time. Wide flares are designed to cover the entire tread of your tire. If you are not sure which type of fender flare is right for your vehicle, the accessory specialists at D&S Automotive will help you explore the available options.
