    To mud flap or not yo mud flap

    I'm pretty set on throwing mud flaps on my WRX. Are Rally Armors the best and only option? $165 seems high for some mud flaps.

    Rally armors are definitely worth it. I have had them for two years now and they look brand new still.

    What makes them better than the competition other than a higher price?

    Are those the regular sized ones or the shorter ones?

    +1 almost 2 years here and no problems, look great, keep the car great, flap in the wind great. Minus a bit of wax residue.

    Residue?

    You also brought up something I was wondering when you mentioned that they flap in the wind great. I've been checking out some videos on YouTube and reviews and whatnot, but some people mention how rigid the RokBlokz are in comparison to the less-rigid Rally Armors. I was thinking you'd want your mud flaps to be more rigid. Am I wrong on this?

    I would thing you need some give to the mud flaps so when a rock hits it and drops down rather then too rigid and bouncing back forward if that makes any sense. The only thing I like about RokBlokz is they are larger.

    I have had some stiffer plasticy flaps like Rockblockz and they eventually cracked and fell apart during the winter.

    Rally Armour is no better or worse than any other Urethane flap of the same durometer. Also unless they pay me I don't feel like showing off their logo all the time. I bought uncut flaps for $20 a piece from rallylights.com and the hardware cost all of 3 or 4 dollars and they are the shape and size that I want and I put the shinny side in (urethane comes with a smooth shiny side and a more satin looking side) for a more subdued look. They have been on the car for 3 years and been abused hard from rallycross, snow and ice build up during Colorado winters, and constant sand blasting from our Colorado roads. No signs of wear and I payed around half what I would have for Rally Armour.

    I got wax on them, too lazy to wipe it off.
    They're soft like trailers on the highway. I personally like it. Rallyarmor also makes a stiffer set for cheaper. At least they do on older models
