Mud Flaps / Splash Guards / Rock Guards / Etc?

Mud Flaps / Splash Guards / Rock Guards / etcetera?

What's the difference between all of those in terms of efficiency or are they all the same shit, just designed differently for everyones wants?

Also, what color combination would you think looks best on a Summit White Camaro with Black & Red accents?

- Black Rock Guards on Summit White Camaro
- White Rock Guards on Summit White Camaro
- Red Rock Guards on Summit White Camaro

Black rock guards or none. They are barely visible, blend in with the wheel wells and dark tires and wheels.

That said, they really don't do much (at least the ZL1Addons ones). Still plenty of crud flung by the front tires, plenty of rock chips. Part of the fun of having crazy sticky tires.

Bought the Addons guards. They work fine for me. Should have done it day #1. Still hear rocks and gravel flinging but they don't hit paint on sides like they used to.

I went with the ACS Composites rock guards, front and rear. The fronts require a rivet gun (and you should buy some more good quality rivets), but I know that unlike the ZL1 addons rockguards there is more than tape holding them on. The rear rockguards use factory screws to hold them in place.

4 supplied clips for each front...tape is a good way to line them up. Type aside, do yourself a favor and get some, OP

Get some rock guards, it's are better than nothing, but you will get chips no matter what.

I'm not going to say the vendor but the guards I bought after reviewing this board were sh?t. Complete Sh!t. Mierda. They are likely the ones you're considering. They don't work. They will fall off. You'll wonder why you paid what you did after you realize you've been screwed. So much $ and then the answer is more screws.

I did the ACS guards and the ACS skirts. I'm pretty convinced that the skirts actually did more to keep rocks off the fenders than the guards did, but they definitely both help.
