Mud flaps can be as decorative and fun as they are protective. After all, it's hard not to think of the cartoon character Yosemite Sam's famous flaps, telling other vehicles to back off. That's as much as statement of keeping your distance from a vehicle than the primary reason for flaps: to keep flying debris from hitting your truck or others. It is very important for you to use this type of accessory if you want your vehicle to avoid doing this.
Made of rubber, mud flaps do more than just keep mud from being a nuisance. The faster a vehicle goes, the more traction a tire needs on the road. If the road is not squeaky clean — and those road are hard to find — then flaps are a viable option to knock down whatever comes up from a rotating tire. Since so much can come up from your tires, it makes your truck that much more susceptible to paint chipping, body damage or mud stains that will take a number of washes to get out. If you have a running board, these flaps can also keep them protected. You also have to consider any items you're hauling. With these flaps, they will knock down the elements and keep them from damaging your boat or trailer.
