What are fender flares and where are they located?

Fender flares are protective coverings placed above the fender that serve as an extension of the fender. They protect the body (and other vehicles) from road debris and mud flung into the air by the tires. They can also be used to cover rust and other dings surrounding the wheel well, and some drivers might even install them to add a little bit of visual appeal to their ride.

How do I know if I need to install fender flares?

In addition to hiding corrosion or other eye sores, fender flares can be required by law. If you want to add offset wheels or larger tires, you'll probably need some type of fender flares. They type of flare you'll need varies depending on the state, but most either require you to cover the tread or the whole tire. It's important to find out what your state requires. Apart from those two reason, others might add them simply because they like them or to replace an old one.

Can I install fender flares myself?

Fender flares can be installed by the typical do-it yourselfer. If you want to paint your fender flares, we recommend doing so before installing them. Most flares will come with the hardware and trim needed to install the flare. Before installing, peel the adhesive sticker strip on the trim and slowly insert it around the edges of the flare. You can choose to jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel or simply install with the wheel in place. If your flare came with any hardware, insert the bolts into their slots on the flare. Remove any factory screws near the edge of the fender flare, and then insert the fender flare into place. Replace the factory screws.

For the rear, you'll want to add the tabs to the holes inside your wheel well and slide the clips onto the tabs. Then insert the fender into place and tighten the screws. Then add the bolt and washer to the underside of the fender flare.
