Stick with something reputable (like Bushwacker). I have them on my Ram and my Jeep and they stand up to the NY winters just fine.

I know Bushwackers are great but are they really that great? I can't see spending 4 times more for them.

Anyone have experience with other brands??

Pics would be great

Define "great". Is your $100 well spent if your flares crack and break up the first cold month or if somebody runs a shopping cart into them? If you think that's a good investment, go for it. You asked for opinions, you got 'em. If you're looking for someone to tell you that buying $100 plastic flares is a good idea you came to the wrong place.

You get what you pay for... nothing more.

Totally agree with that ^^^^ because you DO get what you pay for.

And Yes, the Bushwackers are really that great. They are well made, you can bump 'em and not worry about cracks, they fit and they last.

Spend $400 now or spend $100 every year...your choice.
