Mud flaps - fit for purpose?

Ha ha ā€“ thought the purchase of some genuine mud flaps (cheers TTF) would stop the wife nagging about the state of the side steps and therefore our young children.

Its better than it was, however means I have half a ton of Sussex finest hanging in my wheel arches rather than on my side steps. Cool

I'm not excusing the mudflaps as they are a bit small/flimsy, but just a thought (and might sound daft), but you are running RRS 20" alloys (with wider than standard 255/50x20 tyres??), which sit slighlty further out in the arch than any of the D4 standard alloys, so that might be why you are still getting a fair amount of crap up the sides

Good spot with 275/45 grabber AT3s. Wink

Cant tell you how many reasonable sized stones ive prized out of the tread. Hopefully will keep the tail gaiters at bay. Thumbs Up

Fair amount of twisties on the estate that might also have contributed to it

Watch this space...

I fitted some genuine LR flaps to our d4 and it helped with mud splatter, but did not eliminate it. I thought the quality of them was good.

I fitted non OEM ones in the same style. They keep the mud splatters off the door which in turn must keep the stone chips at bay. I'm happy with that.

Not sure if still available but there were available Australian spec ones which were longer & wider than UK ones . I had some on mine in 2005. Stupidly sold it with them still on.

Fitted some Series II flaps to previous D4, cannot really say they reduced the amount of mud anymore than the standard D4 ones. My theory was when traveling along, the wind was lifting them up higher than the smaller but more rigid D4 ones.
 D4 HSE MY12 Marmais Teal: Gone. Missed a lot!
Freelander 2 SD HSE MY11 Silver:Thankfully gone.
D4 HSE MY11 Silver: Gone missed !
Range Rover Sport MY06 HSE Buck Blue: Gone missed!
Discovery D2 TD5 Facelift MY Red Gone Missed!
Discovery D2 TD5 Cobalt Blue: Gone Missed!
Discovery D1 Auto Oxford Blue Not missed at all!
Discovery D1 Avalon Blue First LR! missed!

Now driving a rather nice Black Van (joined Club Landmark)
