Fender Flares

I'm looking to cover up the Ford Cancer (rust) on my 04 F350 bed wheel wells. What is the best fender flares for the price and installation convenience?

Thanks!

I have Bushwacker Street flares on my truck, but they fasten to the wheel opening with screws, so there needs to be enough good steel for the screws to stay in place. Rusted metal and or air doesn't have much holding power. Looks like they run about $500 for a set of 4, but if you browse around the internet, I think you can get something similar for way less. They're probably going to be offshore plastic stuff, but they'll probably serve to cover up your rust.

Sorry to revive an old thread but I have a question about your fender flares Mr klhansen. Do they hold moisture or do they drain pretty well?

And if its a state that has snow and uses road salt then the flares make corrosion even worse.

Well, I'd had them on the truck since the summer after I got it, so 18 years now, and they haven't fallen off yet. But like the others said, they do hold some moisture.

I think they also help to prevent tires from throwing stones on gravel roads or in States like AK that use small gravel for snowy roads.
