#6 of 11 Front tires throw big mess on vehicle sides
Feb 23, 2009 (10:26 am)
2006 XLT Escape.
Does everyone have this problem - and has has anyone found a solution for this: My front tires throw so much road slush/salt and water on the sides (and around the front fender) of the vehicle that it even gets up on the side windows. After a trip yesterday I had THICK ice/slush/salt build up on the sides. This can't be good for the paint, especially if it throws some pebbles and debri against it.
Has anyone found a fix or product for this problem - some kind of guard or extension that can be placed around the tire opening on the fender that catches this stuff, maybe a piece of plastic that fits around it and sticks out 3" or so? Mud guards do nothing (except look cool...)
I noticed even at the car wash when I drive away slowly, any water I cross gets flung up on the side doors.
I did look on the internet but maybe I'm not searching the right
