I used the plastic landscaping edging stuff on my truck years ago and they didn't look to bad.  I did have to use a heat gun to form the radius's of the wheel well.  If I didn't do it with the heat gun it would have a kink in the center of the radius.

If I decide to l put flares on one of my tractors im going to look into the ones they offer for golf carts and see if I can make any of them fit.

Could also widen your rear fenders by cutting your fenders off and welding a strip of metal in there then weld the fenders back on.
It would be a great lesson on body work.

hmm, they look bald but a skinny tire up front stops it from plowing mud and more cutting through it.

Haven't updated in a long time. But I've done some stuff and some stuff has broke. I locked the tranny and it does good, the pulley alignment went out and cut two belts I've been working on that, and then the welded pulleys on the tranny finly broke so I will be doing a coupler and extensions shaft with bearing like I should have down from the start. Stay tuned
