Driving through thick mud can be a lot of fun when you are out adventuring with friends and family, but only until when you have to wash your car. With a good set of mudflaps, you can drive over mud-ridden roads without spraying that nasty sludge all over your car’s sides.
By preventing mud and road grime from being slung onto your car’s paint, mudflaps help to protect car paint. When car paint is continuously sprayed with that combination of road salt, tar, dirt, debris, and other contaminants on the road, it slowly erodes. As a result, rust can set in and progressively weaken your car’s frame. Mudflaps also go a long way in keeping at bay all the tiny rock chips or small hard objects that your car’s tires kick up; such projectiles chip at car paint, causing unsightly damage. By extension, you also ensure the safety of the motorists or bikers who may come up behind you on the road when you install mudflaps; those bits of stone or debris can easily crack a windshield when flung at high speeds.

Frequently Asked Questions
From what materials are mudflaps made?
Rubber mudflaps are made from proprietary urethane blends. Metal mudflaps are mostly made from aluminum or stainless steel.
Do mudflaps increase fuel consumption?
That depends on whether the mudflaps you install are solid or flexible. Traditional hard-plastic or metallic mudflaps create drag as they catch the wind, causing your car’s engine to work harder to propel the vehicle forward. Flexible mudflaps like the mudflaps Australia we have here do not hinder airflow much because they twist or flex as air blows past.
