    Default 19" snowflakes kicking up ****

    hi , anyone with 19" snowflakes on getting the bottom of the wing and the door sandblasted with crap , with my face close up i can see tiny white speckles like some one drove through paint on the road , but on real close inspection its damage to the paint , nothing touches it , tried scratch remover , t-cut , clay bar , i have got it looking ok and you cant notice it when stood , the car is black by the way so i know they show everything , just wondering if i should get mub flaps is this a problem for anyone else ?

    I would say flaps are must with big wheels. Even the standered moulded ones.

    Just wondering, how can bigger wheels make a difference? The rolling diameter is the same size on a 17,18 or 19 on a vec with correct tyre size? I've checked mine, just the usual chips low down on body kit... But then I don't like mud flaps!

    ive got no issues, no marks at all to the rear end , just the front bumper usual stone chips .
    mines not lower thought so not sure if that has any impact. its sat low enough on the rear with I.C.E in the boot.
