Default Mud Flaps?

I'm looking at getting some mud flaps for my 2012 FX4 but have some questions after reading a bunch of threads. I have the grey wheel flares and also the stock running boards so does anyone know if the oem ford mud flaps will work? I'm looking at these from Tasca,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/04-12-F-150-...ht_2676wt_1219

If these won't work can anyone give me a link of a set that will?

Thanks! Happy football sunday, go Packers!

These won't work. The description says "without (w o) wheel lips (molding). Give Tasca a call, I'm sure they have them that will fit yours.

I have the stock Ford flaps on ours and would NEVER go with them again. The holes for fastening them are not drilled accurately and they are crooked (not even CLOSE to vertical on the outside edge), and don't fit consistently the same from side to side. One side covers the outside edge of the rear tires, the other one is almost an inch short of doing so........they really are just crap! They don't even fit closely to the side of the body on the outside of the truck, which is going to be a problem with dirt and rocks going in there between the flap and the body!!!
Go with Weathertech or someone else who CARES how they are molded and how they end up fitting....I hate mine so much that I am even thinking of throwing them away and going with another brand!

I just orderd a set of flaps from Weather Tech. The main reason for getting them is that no drilling is required for installation. Also a nice thing about them is they are not made in China!! It is a U.S. company but they do have Canadian retailers. I have their floor mats which fit beautifully, so hopefully their flaps are of equal quality.

I should have them in a few more days.
