If you're getting rub and don't want more lift then yeah cut em. It'll look better than having the exposed flare holes. I'd only cut off as much as you have to though... at least that's what I did and I think it looks great.
I'd go with rock rails instead of the cladding if you're looking for protection.... just my 2 cents
