Product Description

Mud flaps are rubber mats attached directly behind the wheels of cars and trucks.  Their main function is to shield other cars from mud and other debris flung out by tires.  Quite often in off-road or rainy conditions, car and truck tires are partially submerged and centrifugal force will send mud and debris towards the back of the vehicle.  Although they are officially called mud flaps, these rubber mats also deflect loose gravel and excessive rainwater.

Passenger vehicles do not always include mud flaps as standard accessories, but almost all commercial trucks use them as safety features on the road.  Trucks hauling loose materials such as gravel must take precautions against accidents caused by flying debris.  The use of these protective flaps on commercial vehicles may even be mandated in some areas.
As with many other after-market vehicle accessories, mud flaps have become popular means of self-expression.  Automotive supply stores carry a wide variety that feature cartoon characters, familiar logos and short sentiments similar to bumper decals.  Some companies actually commission custom ones that feature their name and contact information. Their installation is usually not difficult, but it can be very messy and awkward.  A few bolts or screws hold the top of the mud flap to the frame and the bottom edge remains unattached.
