    New Car Mud Flaps / Guards in Hamilton

    Why are car mudflaps important?

    The mudflaps (commonly referred to as mudguards, splash guards or tyre guards) are used to protect the car, pedestrians and other vehicles from mud, stones or other debris sent upwards due to the car’s moving tyres. The mudflap catches the debris as they are flying up, causing them to drop back to the ground rather than fly upwards and into the windscreen of following cars. 

    Additionally, mudflaps help to prevent dirt and grime reaching and chipping away paint on important parts of your car, especially underneath the car which is prone to rust and corrosion. This makes them important to your car’s health and cleanliness, especially if your vehicle is subject to constant off-road use. Debris such as gravel can also scrape your car’s paint job if the mud flap is missing/not working properly.

    Mudflaps are usually made from rubber or a similar flexible material. They wrap around the bottom of your car’s wheel arches and vary in size and shape. This means that buying the right mudflaps for your car can be tricky.

    Symptoms of mudflap in need of replacement:

    Incorrect installation can lead to a mudflap becoming loose or ineffective. A loose mudflap may also rub against the tyre, increasing wear and resulting in you needing a tyre replacement or new mud flap / mud guards sooner. Common symptoms of mudflap problems include:

    • Burning smell of mud guard / mud flap rubbing on tyre.
    • Scraping noise of mud guard / mud flap rubbing on the ground or car tyre
    • An increased amount of dirt/debris flying up from under your car.
    • Your car is becoming dirty more quickly, especially on the side.
    • Visible cracks in your car’s mudflaps.
    • Mudflaps swaying/shaking more than normal.
    • Possible rattle and knocks from loose mud flaps / mud guards
    • Anger drivers behind you from stones flying up onto their cars
