    Same as above, I don't mind the look enough to have a blind spot or pay an outragous price for curved glass.

    I just recently got taught to set the mirrors to eliminate blind spots. Start by setting in driver seat, set the left mirror by putting head against the window and setting the mirror till you can just see the rear of vehicle, then lean into the center and set the right mirror till you can just see the right read of vehicle, kinda freaky at first but no blind spots.

    Get the inexpensive round ones. Blind spot is a term that people use when they don't know how to drive. Master your mirrors, before you can master the road IMO. Buy that ridiculous hurcules-gurkiewicz mirror for a tacoma and you're not only a retard, you're a queer.

    it's a tiny mirror - hardly noticable. the 'cheap ugly' round ones look as good as any (see first comment) and work well.

    Thanks for all the input. I have the round stick on ones but have seen some that fit the mirror better such as a rectangular one that was placed on the bottom outermost corner. I agree the walmart one works great but I have seen one that looked like it belonged on the mirror.

    you don't need blind spot mirrors, learn how to adjust mirrors correctly. If you can see the side of your vehicle in your side view mirrors then they aren't properly adjusted.

    If you adjusted all of your mirrors right, you will see cars move from your rear view mirror to your side view mirrors aimed at your blind spot.

    Not actually using the mirrors for blind spots. Just thought that was what they were called. They help aid when I parallel park daily making it easier to see my wheels next to the curb. I'll keep searching. Thanks for all the input.

    I guess you have not updated your sensitivity certificate yet queer is no longer used the new term is that is so Emma and Julia. Really if you have nothing helpful to post then don’t post IMO.
