Would these mirrors interfere with the side airbags?

    They won’t stop the air bags from deploying but they may turn into projectiles when they do.

    I would send it back and save the 12/24 bucks you spent. Not trying to sound like a manhood extremity, but they seem like a waste of money.

    I don't know about airbags, but I like the idea of these. I have the fisheye stick ons on my outside mirror, but I like that these don't take up any original mirror space.

    I'm with the others...those will likely launch towards you if the airbag deploys. At the very minimum they will hit your window and shatter it.

    If you need blind spot mirrors these are what I have had in my vehicles. Super quality and lo profile.

    I have blind spot, as I've adjusted the mirrors to eliminate it. It CAN be done if you stop looking at the side of your truck and move the mirrors outward. You should NOT be able to see your truck in the side mirrors.

    Try it...:thumbsup:
