Black 04 Ram Bushwacker Pocket Fender flares, Paint to match or leave Flat Black?

When I get around to putting bigger tires on my truck I think I may want to add fender flares at that time, I am not using them to cover any damage just want them for the look.. My truck is all black except for the chrome rims and nerf bars,
Should I Leave the flares flat black or paint them?
Should I leave the Screw/Rivets chrome or paint them black also?
Bushwacker the best out there?
Best place to buy?
How do they look on a stock rim tire combo (20in) if I wanted to add them before the new tires?

Thank you and any pic's would be great.

I would make sure whatever you buy doesn't require cutting of the fenders or drilling holes. I used Bushwackers on a 4x4 Toyota and it required a lot of cutting. Would n't do it again. I believe I have factory flares on my smoker and they don't require any drilling or cutting.

Factory has Pocket style flares? I have heard Bushwackers are the best, But if they require cutting I do not want that. My tuck is solid and I want to try and keep it that way.

Here's a sport truck I have always admired. It has color matched factory flares.

The only 3rd gen ram to come with factory fender flares was
the power wagon. They only came in black and were textured
to match the door handles. You could buy these as an accessory
from a dealer parts dept. as well.

I am a bit worried since my truck is solid that it will cause issues, I may wait intill I get bigger wheels. I do like the look of the wider tires and the pocket flares.

Mine are not textured so they must be aftermarket which surprises me as the truck is all stock and unmolested.

Keep it reserved and subtle IMO unless you are striving for that all out bad boy off-road look .
