Mud Flaps – They Are Not Just for Aesthetic Purposes Work trucks entering the highway are many times the culprits responsible for leaving for gravel, mud and dirt caked onto the road. Not only can hitting these road debris fields affect your car, but it can have damaging effects to other cars around you. Whether you have a truck, van or SUV, adding Mud Flaps can help save you from irritating dings and dents to your vehicle. How Mud Flaps Benefit Your Vehicle Mud Flaps protect your vehicle by safely deflecting road debris away from the fender wells. Your tires are in constant contact with a long list of obstacles ranging from muddy water to thick tar on a daily basis. Fender wells are made to contain these elements, but need some additional help. Since your fender wells do not extend down behind the tires, debris can still be thrown to damage cars behind you and directly affect your vehicle with damage. When you install Mud Flaps, an additional barrier is created between the wheel well and the tire. Once the paint around your fender is penetrated, the potential of rust forming on the bare steel is quite real. The various road chemicals, oil, and dirt now have a place to adhere. The unsightly dents from rocks and paint chips could leave your car at the local body shop with costly repairs. In their simplest form, Splash Guards also keep the exterior of your vehicle looking cleaner by limiting water splatter. Dee Zee offers several styles of cost effective Mud Flaps to keep you safely on track to your next destination. You can make sure the design fits your lifestyle for worry free driving.
