Has anyone mounted fender flares on their Ridgeline?

I have a 2007 Ridgeline with approx. 118,000 and the driver side rear wheel well is rusting on the edge. In a matter of one year it started to bubble.

I am sure Pittsburgh weather and salted roads don't help.

I looked on the internet and found a place that will sell painted ones to match your oem Honda paint for around $500.

Any advice about brand or pictures of results would be helpful.

Spend the $500 and fix the Rust, the flares will hide it and honestly make it worse. But Rust is like an Iceburg the 10% you see isn't the concern it's the 90% you don't see.

There are several threads on Fender Flares, use the vB search in the upper right side, there are also some used ones available on the trading post

I am surprised that your intentions for the fender flare was to just hide the rust issue. You can coin it up to 'cancer' of metal, when it comes to rust as unaddressed, it will eat its way through everything (as Carsmack mentioned). It maybe cheaper for you to just fix the rust, than invest in flares, which would have to be color matched to your oxidized body paint anyway.
