I use the weathertech myself. easy install. whether you use flaps or not, regardless of brand, you will find that a lot of snow, ice builds up in the wheel well. I'm certain there is a science to it. I have never had a vehicle with such buildup (cars or trucks). The flaps will minimize the splash on the side of the vehicle and reduce the need to clean as often.I own a 2021 Subaru Ascent. Only recently did I realize most SUVs have the mud flaps/splash guard as an option. I live in Chicago where I do get a decent amount of rain and snow. The OEM splash guard seemed expensive at around $160+.
1. Are mud flaps a must-have in the long term ?
2. Has anyone tried 2021 Subaru Ascent | Mud Flaps - Laser Measured Splash Guards for Trucks and SUV's | WeatherTech ? This looked better than the Rally Armor model.
