I want to put fender flares on my gd6.
I have a dark guy bakkie and was wondering how do the studded black flares look against the dark grey? On the white and lighter colors it look good.
Another question is with standard wheels and tyres does it look weird?
I considered the smooth thinner flares but I think against the dark gey they would be lost.
And is there any place to get them at a reasonable price these things are over priced at most shops.
Thanks in advance

Got mine from https://www.efficientexpress.co.za/
Prices are decent and quality is good.

I've seen it on the grey. Looks good.

If not changing wheels I would definitely not go for the big flares with the studs. It makes the current wheels look skinny.
