Best mirrors for doors off?

I have a buddy that got his wife a '10 JK. They have done a lot of work to it already it looks great. They don't plan on doing any off-roading, just enjoy riding through the mountains on the pavement. He finally talked her into taking the doors off after riding with just the top down. They are looking into mirrors and wanted to know the best ones for it. I run with a truck mirror from AutoZone on mine, but he wants something better. He has been looking at the "American Outlaw" mirrors, but he's worried that they will scratch his paint at the hinge. Does anyone know anything about these or have any recomendations for him?
Thanks

so where are u guys finding these harley mirrors?? i went to the harley store by my house, and they didnt have any that fit... none of the "newer" (06 and up) harley mirrors seem to fit, not to mention they didnt even have the same style as the ones pictured above, just some short triangle ones....

Got mine from Hampton Roads HD in Yorktown VA (20bucks) Mine was part # 91931-92T for the left side. Looking at them in the package can be deceiving as there are several spacers making it look as if it wont fit. On my JK with all the spacers off the mirror, only using a washer on the top I had maybe a 1/4 inch for the nut to go on the bottom.

Thanks Guys, I mentioned the HD mirrors already but they don't really like that option. I told him to just order the American Outlaw ones and if he didnt like them to just send em back.
