Aluminum Flares on Billet Silver?

I'm going to buy some Alum flares, most likely Poison Spyder, but don't know if I should paint, powder coat, line X or leave them natural finish.. Does anyone have any pics or thoughts? Thanks

The bare aluminum looks great with some colors but I don't think the billet silver is one of them. I would either paint them billet silver or powder coat in another contrasting color.

Although not aluminum, this is what I went with on my billet silver JKU....

i have a '13 JKUR in billet silver. while i still have the plastic black stock fenders i find the more black i add the the better the jeep looks. i will be powder coating everything in black, i am committed now. leaving stuff bare works for white and light, loud colors (gecko). there isn't enough contrast with bare and billet silver. but, at the end of the day, its all opinions.


2013 JKUR Billet Silver ->
[JKUR - 6 Speed][3.5" MC ARB Lift][40" Nitto Trail Grapplers on 17" TR Beadlocks][5.38s][Fusion 4x4 Kingpin 1 Tons][MC Front & Rear Bumpers][sPOD][Warn Zeon 10s][And more ...]

I've thought about this for months, and it has kept me from ordering flats. I keep looking at this pic from our friends at Northridge. I think it's beautiful.

Nice! I am on a similar path. I sold my Trektop NX to another forum member and will be repurchasing it in twill soon. that and I am eyeballing those very same fenders and plan to rattle can them black. Might try them natural for a while first, though. The Evo rear facia looks good on my white rig so we'll see. I'll probably end up on 40's and back on MTRs again too.

See pic 8.

It doesn't look bad, but it looks better with contrasting colors.
