Default mud flaps

I have a 2004 Camry XLE and a 2004 Avalon XLS that I want some mud
flaps for. There are some aftermarket universal sized brands that are
a decent price but I am concerned that the rear flaps aren't the same
size as the front ones.

Does anyone have experience with installing mud flaps on these cars?
OEM flaps are over $50 - $75

I like these:

I'm not sure if they have them for a Camry though, worth checking. You
will be the envy of the neighbors and they are very cool looking.

You really need the model that goes clear across the rear bumper and
slightly drags on the road with some fuzzy fiber hair. BACK OFF should
be in big letters. Then a coons tail for your antenna (you want a big
long CB antenna) and a bobbing smiley face in the rear deck with a pink
flamingo next to it.

Very cool.

Default Re: mud flaps

Personally, I think you should go to your local dealership and pay the price
for good mud flaps. Nothing looks worse than crappy flaps put on crooked.
The factory flaps will fit right and look good, and the cost should not
break the bank. I bought a set of mud flaps for an Accord I once owned. I
liked the way they fit, and they were designed to actually fit the car. I
would avoid aftermarket parts here UNLESS you happened to see a set of Acme
Mud Flaps installed on a car like yours, and they looked exactly right, then
you could consider buying a set.

Default Re: mud flaps

I ended up getting the OEM mud flaps for the Avalon from the dealer.
They honored a competitor's coupon for 20% off accessories so the total
cost was $61 and some change. It took about an hour and half to put
them on because I had to remove the rear wheels to get a screwdriver in
there and lift the front wheels so I could drill a hole in the bottom
of the foam material of the quarter panel. Squeezing the car into the
garage to get out of the freezing weather was the hardest part.

I honestly think your money was well spent. Yes, you could get Acme Mud
Flaps that one size fits all for less than $20, but when one size fits all
it seldom fits any very well. Yosemite Sam with his guns drawn is not a very
good look for an Avalon anyhow.

I got some really nice ones for the Mazda for about $20 for all four, but
I can't remember where I got them... they were (are) as good as OEM. I
installed them 7 years ago and they still look as good as the day I put
them on.

Wish I could remember WTF I got them.
