You will have holes in your fenders. There are about 8 clips per flare that go in holes in the fender to secure the flare.

I wondered because your profile says you have 265/70/16s.
So what did you get, & where are the pics?

Some custom cut fender flares to fit 35"s

It's about 150 a tube and he used a few tubes. It also cures pretty fast so you have to have a special pneumatic gun and know what you're doing.
I traveled about an hour each way to get them done. Made the drive a few times. With the cost of the flares, 600, gas and random crap (clips, paint, glue, epoxy, angle grinder, cut off wheels) it was probably closer to 700+.
The tabs for the clips and the spacer things are really hard to get right. They accidently knocked off a few so I epoxied them back on. The fronts are about perfect. The rears have a gap so the rubber seal/strip deal has a gap. It looked like shit close up so I got a tube of black silicone and went to town. I just painted it all so I'm gonna pull off all the tape and plastic and check it out tomorrow. It won't look as good and clean as the factory lines but I'm hoping it's better than the gap.
These were there first set and I don't blame them. I doubt the other guys on here who have similar fenders have the same problem.
As I know of currently, Max (theduck911), Eric (relentlesstaco) Anton(all.on.black) and n0rth have these types of fenders along with me. I believe the guy who did theirs doesn't anymore, with the exception of maybe n0rth. The guy who did mine said he'd do others but he'd charge more now that he's done mine.
