Talking mud flap opinions?

i def need them, my tires spray mud all over my rear. do yall thing they look good on stangs? are they the same for v6s and gts? (i think so)

also i have 2 10" subs in the back and heavy rims... should i consider a back seat delete? i dont think it would make huge difference but just lmk

Re: mud flap opinions?

it would be nice to have the mud not sprayed all over the back of my mustang, but it would look horrible. its not worth the money to put flaps on your car especially if you're a big clean freak and clean your car everyday. you're still gonna get dirt or mud on the back anyway, especially if you have wheel spacers, or wide rear rims.

Re: mud flap opinions?

I think a lot of people will hate me for this but I say go for them. If you live in an area where you sling a lot of mud and road grime, or you just like spinning tires they can't hurt right? If you ever want to have more of a sporty look then just take them off.

I think those back seats weigh around 70lbs, it would definitely help offset the weight.

Re: mud flap opinions?

70lbs?? yeah that would make a HUGE difference..from what i saw in the picture of the deletes..people could still sit in the back? just without comfort? or does delete mean DELETE haha

oh also could you still fold down the cover or whatever to get into the trunk fro inside the car? would make dealin with my subs easy

Re: mud flap opinions?

Don't quote me on the weight though, but those seats weigh more than you think. I also assume the back rests are still attached to a metal frame. Just remember that some weight will be added back in with the rear seat deletes, which is usually made of MDF.

As for people sitting back there, the deletes just offer a cover for the exposed frame, so for safety reasons I will say that is an ACTUAL DELETE, remember you will not have seat belts back there anymore as well. Otherwise you could think of them as really uncomfortable seats (like a bench seat or a pew).

Re: mud flap opinions?

if you have a convertible youll loose about 20lbs., and if you have a coupe youll loose around 50. are you planning on doing a lot of drag racing, or just street racing. the delete would be nice, im wanting to do the same thing, but for safety reasons, i wouldnt let anyone ride in the back. its personal preference i guess.

Re: mud flap opinions?

Mud flaps are nice to help keep dirt, grime, mud and rocks off your rear bumper...if you have stock 7.5" wide rims...anything beyond 10", forget it. I still have mine (black with the stamped pony), and I put them on with my 10.5" rims, just as much **** on the bumper. It was like they weren't there, lol.

I'd still consider a cheap set though. They will help prevent rocks from scratching the bumper and that's the biggest thing. Plus it takes 5 min to unscrew the 2 screws that hold them on. I put mine on when I take long trips to car shows and then take them off when I get there.

Re: mud flap opinions?

Here's a set similar to the ones I have. A bit pricey, but they don't look horrible like some out there:

i have a delete kit and it says it does a weight reduction by 40lb, i have a 04 model v6 though so we might be different in weight, and thats a bug NO on being able to use the back seat lol, the board is real light weight and can easly crack. its more or less a new cubby hole to hide amps in or all your cleaning supply for the vechile, i love mine though! has a great sporty look!

Re: mud flap opinions?

they dont look good at all so you will have to decide if you are willing to give up looks for function~
