Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Exterior including Body and Wheels Discussion, Mud flaps for STS - anybody use them? in Item Specific Cadillac Discussion; It's difficult to clean the the lower body behind each of the wheels, so I was considering installing mud flaps ...
C'mon guys, mudflaps are cool, as long as they have the outline of the naked lady they'll look great :banghead2
I actually did have mudflaps on an 89 pontiac formula i had(came that way when i bought it). They were hard plastic and i shaved them down to where they were maybe 1.5 inches long. You could hardly see them, but it did stop most of the caked on debris from messing up the finish right around the wheel well. That being said, i would never buy them.
My 2000 STS came with mudflaps behind all four wheels, I am keeping them on because I have to drive on a gravel road on a daily basis and they help reduce the amount of dust and gravel kicked up. To be honest, they don't really seem like an eyesore, you really don't even notice them unless you're looking closely, I didn't even notice them the first time I saw the car on the lot.
If you're going to get mudflaps, be sure to get a set that are plain flat black, they just sort of dissapear. I've seen some really ugly flaps with "Cadillac" spelled out in chrome or even worse, with a huge colored Cadillac emblem! Now THAT is an eyesore!
