Splash guards

Planning on getting wider tires for my 2SS, so hoping to protect against rock chips. What do you all recommend? Front and rear, or just rear? Will have 285/30/20 front, 305/30/20 rear. Thanks.

Car will look goofy with only front ones. Also, even these don't protect your rockers from chips tossed from the front tires (ask me how I know... or rather don't ), you'll want side skirts for full protection and/or wrap the entire rocker area in very thick PPF.

I have "premium" mudflap style guards from RPI Designs (virtually the same the ZL1 Addons part), but the crème de la crème is ACS Composite's beautiful set, that is, if you're willing to spend $400.

Agree with above, (add the side rockers for more protection), with exception of the ACS composite rock guards. I think the RPI Designs are probably the best in terms of protection. They hang down lower than the ACS composite, which is key to preventing the rocks from flying up. And although they aren't the best looking, they are aren't bad and are still quite stealthy. Ask yourself why you're buying rock guards in the first place, and then buy the ones that work the best.

I would do front and rear. You could probably get away with just the rears as a styling choice - although that might also lead to some "rock chip styling" on the sides of the car. I used the deluxe ZL1 Addons versions on my '16 and now have the same type on my '21. I regularly drive on gravel roads at a horse ranch, so some sort of extra protection was a must for me. These appear to have done the job for a combined total of about 40k miles between the two cars. Over time these rock guards became "invisible" to me (except for when I am washing/drying around the wheels and wheel wells).

On my 2017 2SS, I did front and rear splash guards and ZL1 style rockers. Both from ACS Composites. Not cheap but everything fit perfect.

Wow, car looks really good, especially with having to drive over gravel roads.

Another vote for Rock guards and side skirts from ACS! They work great and look great.

I have the GM color matched (Hyper Blue) ones on both front and back. They were 230 bucks (discount from my bud that worked at O'Reillys got me a discount), I wouldn't buy them again due to the price. The ZL1 add ons are pretty sleek and cheaper. Ill probably get those for my future SS.
