Thought I'd chime in...the fronts are standard TB deflectors...so no trouble there. If you do find a part that fits the rear...let me know please!
thanks, I was talking about the fronts not the rears...only need them on the front wheelwells..cause the front wheels turn I hate to put them on at all

The ones I ordered are plain black front and rear Chevrolet mudflaps for TB w/o flares. I was quoted ~$26/pair. Hope they come in soon cause I'm tired of seeing the SS sit in the garage.

I really only want the front ones but if the rear ones fit...great. If not, I'll just be handing them back to the parts guy.

Was the fit of the rear ones kinda off or way off? I'm not above using my Dremel

The rears were WAY off! Our bumper is evidently quite a bit longer (top to bottom) at the wheel well than our non-SS bretheren.

I'll have to say that the flaps (when they fit) aren't very sexy on our trucks...but if it keeps my ride looking good...I'll do it.

Everyone thought me and my dad were crazy for putting mudflaps on his black Solstice...until they started seeing roadrash on their own cars! I figure the SS will be a keeper...hopefully it can take up a space as a permanent fixture...like my MSE has!

At least your truck is silver...us poor souls that bought black (swore I'd never own another black car!) have to worry about EVERY little knick or scratch showing...even drying the SS off is an adventure!

But when clean...

I remembered real quick why black was bad...and my wife is about to kill me for all the washing I do ...our vette doesn't get near the attention for washing...its yellow. That's a beautiful car you had...we had an '02 GTP anniversary edition for 3 years...loved it. You have a gorgeous truck now...congrats!

"black is better...but not for long" That's my new, Car/Truck motto!!! I love having the silver, still sharp w/o all the hassles..I actually enjot it, whereas my GXP was under a cover and never driven...Thnx..
