    I recently changed my tire to a 265/70/17 Falken and I have some slight rubbing on the mud flaps. I like the look of the flap and the practicality of it. Was wondering if anyone here has any experience with after market mud flaps with the same size tire and no rubbing.

    I kept my stock flaps. Just figured out where it was slightly scraping when making a right or left into driveways, and i just trimmed out that small spot with a dremmel. Problem solved.

    I have Weathertech's and they rub a little. I live with it. I have a "No Flares" SR-5 and Toyota doesn't make mud guards for it.
    Running the same size tire in KO2's. WT did their testing with the largest stock tire which is the 265/65/17.

    Rokblokz makes a thinner aftermarket flap that's more flexible.

    I bought some aftermarket mudflaps for my SR5 shortly after buying it 5 months ago.

    I never did install them for some reason.

    Two weeks ago I had some 265/75r16 MT's put on it. The factory wheels don't protrude out of the wheel wells at all so there is minimal debris being slung on the truck.

    I may add them and see if they fit without rubbing. Gonna have to get a special small profile 90 degree ratchet driver to fit in between the new tires and the mounting screws.

    Genius pro-tip.


    My mind is dulled due to 10 straight days of 12+ hours shifts.

    First day off today....need more coffee.


    Thanks. That'll work.

    I feel the pain. I work 12 hour shifts too, and after a night shift my mind is especially fried.

    Absolutely understand that feel.

    Got off at 8:00pm last night....woke up to 3:45am alarm today on my day off because I forgot to cut it off. I was a dumbass. :boom:

    Start night shift tomorrow night to make it 13 twelve hour+ shifts worked in 14 days. No complaints here, though.....as I volunteered for some of the OT shifts in between regular schedule.

    Zero complaints.

    Funds will find their way to my grills, smoker & Taco Truck mods. :smokertransformer:




    Now it's time to get my lazy arse moving and go wash the three Yotas in the driveway. :bucket:




    Maybe I'll first run up the road real quick to mud hole that the rains made yesterday and go plowing around in it. :mudding: Gonna call a buddy and see if he's free to go along....or at least available if I get stuck and need recovery help.





    EDIT: I only got around to half-assed washing one of the Yotas. Got my giddyup when the wife said she wanted us to go hit our local Tex-Mex cantina this afternoon. Sounds good to me !


    I'll give those mudflaps a test drive next weekend, I suppose.

    Came out just fine. No more little rubs. I actually cut too much off now that i look at it. I over cut a square piece where i saw some scrapes on the flap. Turns out that it was just about a quarter size where the inner tire barely touches that part of the flap.

    I went with the universal fit Rally Armor ones, they are flat so you can somewhat form them to your wheel well and I have 285s with Around an inch of lift in the front

    I run the exact same tires with SCS Ray10’s which have a more aggressive offset than stock. I added Plasticolor mud flaps which come in two different sizes and can be easily trimmed further to fit to your liking. I had to crop mine a little to make them not rub but they have definitely been a huge help keeping rocks, pebbles and other stuff from flinging up against the sides. Plus they are flexible.
