I just had to replace mine but the rust was pretty severe. I would have preferred to try to repair the original ones if they werent so bad. Aftermarket fenders (aftermarket anything) arent as good as OEM.

Whether you repair or replace, highly recommend using seam sealer on every seam on the underside of the fender. I've done it on both of my replaced fenders and not a speck of rust in sight after 5+ years.

Any particular brand?

I had it repaired last year and then when replacing the flares found the paint in the same spot bubbling again.

Decided to replace the fender.
