I think it looks like cheap crap on a stock car. But, with flares, fat tires and front air dam, it looks good.

Part of the reasoning is that the rear spoiler "lengthens" the line of the car. In other words, when you look at it on a 3/4 view, the spoiler makes the car appear longer by pulling your eyes off center.

But, when combined with other design elements, like flares and front air dam, a rear spoiler helps re-establish the visual balance.
