Why do you need a fender flare?

A Fender Flare is a custom feature for your truck that maximises the guard size and hangs over the tires to compensate for lower hanging wheels. Adding an aggressive, indestructible look to your vehicle, flares also help you comply with regulations, as your lifted 4WD wheels and tires are still covered while maintaining their height.

Designed with 3M adhesive and rubber trim, these flares are easy to install into the holes already in your vehicle and don’t require additional drilling; they are also precisely made to fit your vehicle’s body and transform the appearance of your 4x4, so you’ll be ready to go full throttle. Fender flares are the best way to safeguard your vehicle while heading offtrail, as you want to avoid damage from dirt, rocks, branches and debris. Shield your exterior and ensure maximum tire coverage for whatever the road throws at you. There are different fender flares depending on your vehicle, style and interests, and there are a range of other brands that stock them (though Bushwacker are among the best known and most trusted). Some of the types of fender flares on the market include the OE Style, Street Style, Bolt Style and Extended Style. Fender flares are also available in a range of colors and textures to match the aesthetic of your vehicle.
