Farm pickup - Silverado fender flares

My body shop guy says when the newer Chevrolet Silverado pickups start bubbling the paint (rust through) over the rear wheels to just cover the entire outside opening with the plastic fender flares. I guess they can fix a rust spot, but then it does the same thing next to it the following month. Looks to me like some come from the factory that way - with flares. On ebay there are many for sale. I don't think I want the super big ones that look like they are bolted on (fake bolts). Some of the retailers say the flares they sell are like the OEM fender flares which are relatively flat and go up the fender 4 - 5 inches - which would cover the bleed/rust throughs. Does anyone have any experience purchasing these fender flares and have any personal preferences?? Thanks

My 2004 Chevy came with them. I think it was standard on the Z71 package. Its under my doors that's rusting. I cleaned the drain holes every oil change. Should have sprayed all the used oil in there.

dan's got the right idea, these thin metal newer trucks are designed to be pampered and driven to the office,the designers lighten the truck bodies up to help improve gas milage and make them cheaper to produce, they just cant figure out that some of us actually still use a truck as a truck, not a neighborhood status symbol in the suburbs, when a farmer or rancher buys one and intends to actually use it for a truck, a flatbed is the only way to go, can even save money and order a chassis cab and go flatbed from new, that way you dont have the agravation of watching the nice buggy your still making payments on rust thru right in front of you , my ford with a utility body is now starting to need some rust thru attention, it was 1970

There is a guy here locally with a relatively new Dodge 3500 dually. He got tired of new trucks getting all scratched up by mesquite thorns, so he took it to the body shop from the dealer, and got full coverage bed liner spray. 10 years later, it still looks fresh.

Some guys have a layer of bedliner sprayed on that look real good and they won't let moisture get behind them to make more rust.

When the rear fenders on my '02 SuperDuty got so bad I couldn't take it any more, here's what I did.
