Question tow mirrors -mopar or dorman??

so ive learned the hard way that buying cheap tow mirrors isnt the way to go - glass rattles inside plastic and cheaply made on most. ive heard mopar obviously is the way to go but is alittle pricey for just buying mirrors (280 is cheapest ive seen)!!! ive got several websites. . genos (105each) - 1aauto (170pair) - or dodgeparts.com (mopar $280pair) to choose from ... genos and 1aauto is dorman .. both the same part numbers. anybody run these? good quality no vibration in glass?? any help is appreciated

Do you need both of them sides?

280 seems like a decent deal on OEM
