The bushwacker flares go over your fenders to extend the fenders for wider tires by about 4".
I never heard of cut outs

Hass, the ones you and I use are also known as the cut out type, in that you are able to cut away portions of the fender and have a new sized opening (as I have done). BW also makes a model called extend a flares that do not differ from the original wheel well contour.

If you use the extandas the contour will be all wrong. If you just want some 2~3in. flare, JC whitney has some rubber flares that are well made and are flexable enough to contour to anything.
