    I’m actually curious myself too. Saw these on eBay as well. If you don’t have the tires that stick out too far these might look nice. Was deciding on this or the oem look fender flare, painted. I like how it’s slim.

    Following, one of the Amazon comments says it doesn’t fit a 2019 but it does a 2015.... I thought they were the same body

    A coworker had them and they faded pretty quick and look like crap. You would be better off checking the forum or local CL for OEM flares.

    Do we know for sure these are the same flares?

    If they are then the manufacturer decided to go without UV inhibitors.

    For $115, I don't see a company putting any effort into a product at that price.

    That's speculating. I have bought many items at a very low price that have been a very good product. I've also bought items that turned out to be crap and returned them. I bought a Pro grill for my Tacoma at about a third that it would have cost OE and it was perfect after two years of use. I parked it next to a Pro and you could not tell the difference between the two. Just bought a set of aftermarket tow mirrors for my Tundra and also are very good quality.

    Can you take a picture of your coworkers Tundra when your at work?

    Dont bother buying them. They never fit right and I ended up sending them back and had to pay the shipping to return them. :mad:

    Yea they fit fine on the front but the back flares had a large gap on the top no matter how I fitted it.

    I bought these on Ebay ($10 cheaper than Amazon) after doing some research. I was concerned with them being so cheap however I like the thin style. They do require that you remove the factory mud flaps. They shipped with some mounting clips that were way too small but I was able to trim the mount and get them to fit. The flares go on super tight, which I like. They are textured so painting them would require a bit of prep work.

    I'm glad they worked for you. Looks like they are either a hit or miss. They were gaps on the back when I installed mine and nothing I did by repositioning them would help. Also losing the mod flaps was a deal breaker.

    Yes, I was concerned after seeing your post where you returned them. They are definitely not as polished as more expensive flares. I purchased new hardware to fasten them instead of reusing the factory fasteners. That seemed to help keep them tight.

    The front on mine fit well but the rear flares were made wrong. They must not have come out of the mold correctly. When I tried to move the bottom of the flare against the truck the the top edge would leave the surface of the truck. New hardware wasn't going to correct it. Then the issue not using the mudflaps and concerns that the product may not last made the decision to return them. I didn't get replacements because at this point I was concerned about the quality and if I had to remove them in a couple of years I would have a flare mark on the paint where they contacted.

    do know how much tire coverage they provide? I bought the bushwacker extend a flare and they are just too bulky for me.

    Very little. They are designed for stock tires and rims but the quality is questionable.

    I wanted something to protect from chips in the paint from my oversized tires. I would say they stick out less than an inch.

    I saw on a forum a while back where someone was able to slightly modify the Styleline fender flares and keep his mud flaps. Was wondering if anyone else has tried these flares (or any other slim line flares) and was able to keep the mud flaps?

    That may have worked but at that point it just becomes to much of a pain. There was also the fear if the mod didn't work you could be stuck with messed up mud flaps or flares that couldn't be returned. Just decided to cut my losses and bail.
