The rally proven design, wide area of coverage, and premium choice of materials allow Rally Armor flaps to provide superb protection for your vehicle. The mud flaps of the company help prevent snow, rocks, water, gravel, mud, dirt, grease, road paint, and asphalt as well as vehicles/objects behind you from hitting the sides and underbody of your vehicle.
For a point of reference for the coverage, here is an example of the rally mud flap rear coverage on an Impreza, during daily driving/wet road conditions. Note the concentration of debris/dirt towards the center of the flap, towards the sides of the flap you will see how the grit/mud begins to taper off:
On the front end we see the same type of debris/dirt concentration (the splash on the undercoated wheel well area is a result of the wheel turning).
In a harsher snow/mud spray condition, Rally Armor mud flaps help protect and offer the kind of protection owners of the vehicles with a rally look need.

Rally Armor strives to provide as many options as possible depending on the specific needs of each owner.
Each application has its practical appeal as well as unique characteristics specific to its working environment or to what each individual is looking for in their mud flap application of choice. Seasonal use, budgetary/generic alternatives, daily driving, extreme environment use, material choices, and lowered applications are all addressed with each application type.
For lowered vehicles, harsher conditions, and extreme wintry environments, Rally Armor UR mud flaps are the premium choice. They are suitable for both daily street driven and competition vehicles.
The durable urethane construction of these mud flaps remains flexible in a variety of temperatures, providing flexibility without extreme curling/cracking as seen in other standard plastic or vinyl based flaps, which certainly do not perform in the same manner.
The UR mud flaps stay rigid during driving conditions, yet flex when needed to conform to any environment.
These characteristics contribute to the widely adopted use of urethane in motorsports applications. UR setups are similar to what Rally Armor provides to its motorsports users:
In a "street" ready design:
With the launch of the UR series, the main goal of providing a premium, flexible, urethane application that protects and looks great at fraction of the cost of any true bolt-on urethane solution is achieved. Flexible (not "floppy"), superb strength, long term durability and protection are the characteristics the UR series provides for your vehicle. The flaps have a gloss finish when new and become matte after use.
For some of Rally Armor vehicle applications, the offerings of the company include a more rigid, street version model known as the "Classic" series. The Classic lineup is the original rally style mud flap application that is in production for over half a decade.
The current V4 Classic application serves as a wider rally style mud flap alternative, but something not excessively huge beyond its intended functionality. Like Rally Armor UR series, it complements the aggressive rally stance of the vehicle and is a nice choice for a factory height/daily driven application.
The finish on Rally Armor Classic flaps is automotive trim style matte black, with an embedded logo in a variety of logo color combinations. As an added bonus, the width and rigidity of the flaps allow them to perform as curb guards for pricey wheels.
Originally created as generic auto parts/budget-friendly alternative for owners, the R/A version was intended to fall into a similar price category, with a higher quality. Functioning as the thinner gauged, cost-competitive alternative to other products of Rally Armor, the Basic flaps sport an aggressive UV treated black plastic auto trim grain finish helping mask everyday abrasions. For owners interested in light, cost-efficient mud flap protection, the company’s "basic" application is a practical, affordable choice that is also great for seasonal or temporary use.
Yes, the majority of OEM spats/skirts utilize the same mounting holes that rally mud flaps of the company use.
Lancer Evolution/WRX Example below:
Outstanding coverage and protection, direct fitment for your vehicle with detailed vehicle specific installation instructions and videos. Rally Armor employs experienced industry fabricators and utilizes superior industrial class machinery for a consistent quality product every time. Other rubber, plastic, and fiberglass reinforced flaps on the market simply can not compare.
Yes, current Rally Armor WRX/RS flaps will fit the wagon equivalents/counterparts without modification except for 2006-2007 Impreza Wagons. 06-07 wagon owners have successfully modified the application by performing a tapping of an existing hole marker in the side skirt and flap in the front as shown (rear is bolt on):
Traditional splash guard setups can’t offer the same type of coverage as a true rally mud flap application. It is also important to note the cavernous inner regions make an area that can gather grit/debris that can damage your vehicle’s sides underneath:
Rally Armor applications not only provide the additional coverage, but help prevent this type of scenario from occurring.
While running an extended mud flap, it is always recommended to be especially cautious when reversing and parking. The washers provided with Rally Armor applications work with your mud flap set to help function as a point of release thereby helping to avoid most potential mishaps wherever possible.
Users will find that in most cases, replacing a washer or a single mud flap is much easier and cost-effective than replacing vehicle body parts. As with any extended mud flap application, parts can be damaged or dislodged if they get caught in between the tire and curb/snow bank, etc, in a reversal/parking scenario for example.
The entire weight of a motor vehicle weighing thousands upon thousands of lbs is leveraged against the flap. Additional caution during these maneuvers is advised as Rally Armor is not responsible for lost or damaged flaps.
