Can you take a picture of the front of the mud flaps? I have seen all the pictures of the back side I am just wondering what they look like from the front. Thanks.

Do the mud flaps do their job without compromising the look of the car? My black Sky is on order, and I'm concerned about keeping it clean.

Thanks for posting pictures of the mud flaps I've yet to see them (but may have missed the thread). Can you post a picture of them from a little further away? Not to be picky but I'm considering whether or not I want these.

Thank you, I have seen these pictures. None of the pictures show the front side of the mud flap (side facing the tire) which is the picture I requested Futureskyowner take. Is it contoured? Is it flat? Is it hollowed out? I am just curious to see it before I spend that much on a set of mud flaps.

The mud flaps work really well on my black sky. After seeing how much water gets up on the sides of the car, I quickly had them installed and it made a real difference I can take a picture if you still are interested in seeing it.

You answered my question. Thanks. I was just curious if they really worked or not.

Also remember that some of us are gonna put on Solstice mud flaps on our Skys. They are a little larger and look more proportionate to the car. You do have to drill new holes for them, but they are the same price.

Turk,

the Solstice mud flaps for the rear wheels are much larger, those for the front wheels seems similar in size to me, see pics.

...large flap front......large flap rear......small flap rear...

If the smaller work really well as jrssky told us, there is no necessity to take the bigger ones. IMO the Sky type are better looking flaps.

And the larger rear flaps from the Sol could make a problem if you drive off a higher curb stone. They are so deep on the floor you could damage the flaps an the rear bumper. That plastic is very fragile.

The front sky flap is definitely very small compared to the solstice. All most too small. I have to agree the rear solstice flap looks a little large.

I guess I will compare the two when my sky comes in. The owner also owns a Pontiac dealership next door.

Turk,

if you like you can order the front ones from Pontiac and the rear flaps from Saturn, they are sold seperate. For example I have mounted only the front flaps at my wife's Ford Fusion (Europe), because the rears are too deep on the floor.
Maybe the real dimension in the pics are not recognizable exact enough with the different angles of view, but I only can use the pics.
And not to forget there is a long distance across the atlantic. :D
