    I have used many adhesive blind spot mirrors in the past, no problems. Now I can't find any place with good mirrors. The adhesive is too small resulting in mirrors that fall off. I've been to O'Reilly's, Walmart, Target, Autozone. This is ridiculous. It's just a friggin stick on mirror!

    I'm looking for a 3" round with good adhesive

    OR

    aftermarket mirror replacement with a built-in blind spot mirror and anti-glare surface/coating.

    Anyone?

    I used some from the dollar store. Alcohol preclean is key. I only had problems with them falling off when I hit them with the snow brush, but only when it's near or below 0F.

    I agree about the 2". I have one on drivers side. Been on 2 years now and I don't think I even cleaned the mirror first.

    Might try removing the original adhesive and using some 3m double sided tape. Wrap some of that sh-tuff around your tires and you'll be able to climb a tree :)
