Paintable Flat Flares

So I'm looking into getting some flat flares, when I get them I want to get them painted to match. I really like the "rugged ridge all terrain flat flares" but i don't know if they are paintable or not any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Most of them are going to be paintable, as soon as you bend them or hit them your paint will crack though. Just find some color matched factory flares and cut them up!

What color do you plan on painting them. You could always plasti dip it if they. Have the color you want.

Get the Poison Spyder flares. They'll take a hit without the paint cracking.

Anything is paintable. Sand, clean, prime and paint.

Shoot me a PM, I can give you a quote on Poison Spyder's, ACE, Smittybilt, Rugged Ridge and Bushwacker.

Their flares have some pretty stout reinforcement brackets to keep that from happening.
