Review of the Buyers Products Mud Flaps


Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the line of Buyer's Products Rubber Mud Flaps. Now, mud flaps are often one of those overlooked components that no one really gives much thought to. And that's understandable, it's something you can easily forget about, but in all honesty, it's a really important component to have on your trailer.We've all been there and been behind that guy pulling his trailer down the road, and he's got dirt, debris, rocks, and everything else shooting out from under the trailer, hitting your car. And you definitely don't want to be that person doing that. Today's day and age, you want to do your best to avoid any potential liability issues, and that's what the mud flaps are going to do.

They're going to completely cover up your back tires and stop all those rocks, dirt, mud, whatever it may be, from shooting out of the back of your trailer.What's nice about the Buyers Products Mud Flaps is they're virtually going to be able to work with just about any application, and that's because there is tons of different sizes available. Now, I do want to mention one thing that will help you determine what size mud flap you should get. One of them is going to be how high your trailer's going to sit off the ground, so you definitely want your mud flaps to come maybe within a few inches. Today, we have a good example of about how high it should sit off the ground, and also how wide your tires are going to be.So, today we have a dual rear wheel, and so you want the mud flap to completely cover both sides of that wheel if that makes sense. So both ends of the mud flap are coming out past our outer wheel, and our inner wheel.

That way we have complete coverage and the mud flap will stop any of that dirt or debris that our tire sling off.So these mud flaps are made from recycled rubber, right here in the USA, which is always nice. And from my experience, these rubber ones are a little more forgiving than the polymer type mud flaps. Those polymer ones, they're almost like a hard plastic, and so they don't have as much flex or give. So whenever you happen to back over a curb, or maybe run something over, which does happen when you're pulling these big trailers from time to time, the mud flaps is going to give a lot easier and kind of flex. And, it's going to be less likely to tear or stretch up here at the attachment point.So up here, we just have four bolts and washers tying it into the mud flap bracket.

I want to mention, the hardware does not come included, so you'll either have to reuse your current hardware or pick some up separately. There's also bolting plates, or mounting plates available too, that kind of go the extra mile where it's a piece of metal that runs all the way across, and you put your bolts through that. So that keeps it very secure or there's nothing wrong with doing it this way either. We just use some larger washers and that'll really help keep our mud flap in place.And for those of you that are in cold temperatures all the time, rubber definitely has an advantage over that polymer type. Again, more forgiving, the rubber isn't going to get brittle, really hard, and so it's going to be one less thing we have to worry about.

And I kind of speak to that from personal experience. For years, I worked at a tractor trailer shop, and I'll tell you right now, I replaced a lot more of those polymer plastic style ones over the rubber ones. Those ones seem to get damaged and worn out much more often or frequently than the rubber style that we had.I will say too, pretty impressed with how thick and heavy duty this feels, it's not cheap or flimsy in my opinion. That rubber is going to be a quarter inch thick. So, it should last for a long time, the mud flap isn't going to wear out just from regular use by any means.So, whenever you do get to the point where you need to install your mud flaps, they're going to be super easy and straightforward. What's nice is there's already four kind of pre drilled holes in here for you that way you just have to run your bolts right through there into your mud flap bracket and put a nut on the backside.Now, if the holes don't line up with the holes that are in your existing bracket, really not a huge deal. You have two choices. You can either drill new holes in your brackets, line up with the ones in the mud flap, or I don't see why you couldn't even just drill new holes into the mud flap to line up with the ones in your bracket. So truly universal. And you're going to be able to make these work, pretty much regardless of how your trailer is set up.So at the end of the day, a mud flap is a mud flap, but some have advantages over other types of mud flaps. So definitely something you want to keep in mind. In my opinion, and from my experience, the rubber mud flaps are kind of that good, all the round one, that you really can't go wrong with. But, with that being said, that'll finish up our look at the Buyer's Products Rubber Mud Flaps..
