Pros Coverage for your tires if your state has laws against exposed tires, inexpensive, complete bolt on
Cons Looks goofy with the wrong tire / wheel combination, fade fairly easy
Recommended yes

Comments: I got these flares just because of the state I live in (Pennsylvania) the law requires full tire coverage. They are kind of nice because the Jeep doesn't get as dirty as it use to when going off-roading, but they do fade really easy and look really goofy.

I must say though, they are pretty durable when it comes to coming into contact with trees or other obstacles. They took a couple nice hits and haven't cracked.

My girlfriends dad runs the same flares but has a 33x12.50 tires on a 15x10 wheel and it gives it a nice wide, aggressive stance.

Pros Cheap, wide enough to cover all tires, Keeps you legal
Cons looks funny if your tire does not fill it out
Recommended yes

Comments: If you want a stock style flare that is large enough to cover 12.5" wide tires, this is the flare for you! Very durable, i dented mine in against a tree, then flipped it ove and hammered the dent back out, and now it is barely noticeable. easily painted, and straight forward install!

Pros Covers almost any tire at a great price. Hard to hurt.
Cons I got teased that I had park bench seats.
Recommended yes

Comments: If you need a flare this large it's hard to beat for the money. If I did bash them in I just got a white coloring on them that paint would fix. They were tough enough for my little girl to jump on.

Pros Very Rugged for extreme wheelin, and very affordable
Cons Not the best for the pretty boy jeeps...
Recommended yes

Comments: I have these flares on my 94 YJ. I have had them smashed flat against the body, even though the sheet metal recieved dents the flares snapped right back into shape with a few scratches, but that matches the rest of my rig. I would assume that very cold temperatures would make them brittle. However if and when I need flares again, Omix will be my choice

Comments: These were an easy and complete kit to install, all hardware parts were replaced.
They have held up to some tree bumping.I did crack one on a tree but it was hit fairly hard so I dont blame that on the flare at all. For $180 shipped its great.
