Deciding Between Poly Truck Fenders vs. MetalBoth metal and poly trailer fenders provide a long-lasting solution for protecting your truck and other vehicles from the spray of debris that comes off tires. Metal truck fenders are strong and resist corrosion if regularly cleaned, but poly fenders provide you with a lower maintenance solution that gives the style you want without sacrificing the durability you need. They are less heavy than metal, won’t rust, and are easy to install.
Poly truck fenders provide a range of benefits including:
- UV resistant
- No corrosion
- Easy to clean
- High resistance to dents and scratches
- Cleans easily with soap and water
- No stress cracking
- Impact resistant

Installing Your Poly Truck FendersBetts HD is the only manufacturer in the marketplace that offers Total Installation Kits (TIK) providing you with everything you need to install your poly trailer fenders. Our kits include the fenders, mounting brackets and hardware and are available in eight setup options with custom kits available upon request. We also have a How to Measure Fenders guide that helps you determine the correct fender size for your truck.
When installing your fenders, always make sure you allow for proper clearance above your tires and underneath your fifth wheel and trailer to prevent rubbing and damage. You will also need to determine your frame bracket location and drill holes in the appropriate area for your paddle bracket, and for your center bracket. Adjust your fender height as necessary to complete installation and take measurements to comply with state regulations.
