Mud guards will keep your automobile clean for a long period of time and do the same to the vehicles around you. Another thing it will save you time and money by not having to get a car wash all the time.
Splash guards are usually made of sheet metal, sheet metal and rubber, or rubber-composite. Both materials are durable but serve a different purpose. Rubber/ rubber-composite mud flaps are rigid to protect your car from hard debris. Some manufacturers employ bottom weights or specialized frames to the more flexible rubber splash guards. On the other hand stainless steel and aluminum mud guards are usually used for decorative purposes. If you want the best looks on the road, than choose metal flaps.
