Whether you call them mud guards, mud flaps or a splash guard one thing is certain: they will save you a lot of time and heartache when it comes to cleaning and maintaining your vehicle. These great accessories ensure that your vehicle stays cleaner and protect its delicate finish from road debris, dirt and, of course, mud. And, not only will you love the results but your fellow drivers will appreciate it as well as they will not be sprayed with a slew of muddy water as you drive on by and you will save their windshields from being cracked and chipped by rock hits. At Rvinyl.com, we want you to enjoy all of these benefits and more which is why we stock guards and flaps from some of the best companies in the industry such as Putco and Husky to name a few.
Aside from the choice of manufacturer you should also know that mud flaps can be sold as pairs for the front or rear or as complete sets for all four wheels. Front splash guards ensure that your body panels and underbody are protected from snow, rain, gravel and road debris that can damage your vehicle and pave the way for rust and corrosion.
Stainless steel is the only way to go when you need heavy duty durability and protection. Think of steel mud flaps as virtually impenetrable shields that will protect your vehicle and your fellow driversï¿½ windshields from rock hits and debris. And, if you need a little more flexibility or simply donï¿½t feel the need for heavy-duty protection then you should consider traditional rubber flaps.
Another consideration to make when purchasing a mud flap set is whether you want a straight or slightly curved design. The advantage of straight designs is that they are universal (they can be used with any vehicle) which means they will usually be less in price but they may not perform as well as those made for a particular year, make and model. In addition, universal guards may need to be modified if they are too long by cutting as opposed to rubber, contoured flaps which are vehicle specific. Perhaps the best choice (without considering steel versions) is molded ABS plastic guards which are also vehicle specific and can be painted to match any design theme.
At Rvinyl.com we do all we can to bring you the best in quality and selection. Whether you choose a universal kit for the front wheels only or a stainless steel mud guard set for all four tires you can buy with confidence knowing you will get the most for your money.
