Question Mudflap opinions

Hey everyone i'm looking for some opinions on what brand/model mudflaps to get for my 2002 WRX sedan. I would like some that stick out a little for more protection, I live in Michigan so winters get pretty cold and from what i understand some mudflaps do better than others in the colder weather. My car is silver and my rims/hood scoop/windows are all blacked out. In the near future i plan to paint my calipers red and buy some other red parts. And my WRX is also lowered 1-2 inches on coilovers.

My brother and I both have rally armor flaps, I love them and so does he. He's had his for the past two winters and has had only one problem (he ripped one off on a curb, which rally armor replaced for a discounted price!!) But, rally armor seems like an all around good choice!

I have a 11 DGM WRX hatch and i kinda went the same route, In my opinion I believe getting red is too much so if you get the black with red logo, I think it would be a really nice set up.

I went Rally Armor UR to deal with the cold weather

I got the Urethane. They are more expensive to begin with but they are more forgiving. They don't curl up like the basics do over time.

Look into flapatax. Not saying they're any better than rally armor but I don't think they're any worse and they're a lot cheaper. I believe a nasioc member is actually the owner and manufacturer of flapatax so you'll be supporting your local community.

I have rokblokz/gorilla on my '11 and while the RA's look a hell of a lot better these are bigger and seem like they would block more stuff. I wont say they will because I haven't had rally armors to conpare. Also the way you mount the rokblokz, I don't see them coming off anytime soon. Be aware that they do turn heads... When they scrap

Original, stock height and they scrap very often. I think it's because the suspension is too soft so when you pull into a drive way or parking lot they scrape

Does anyone else wonder why Rally Armor feels they need to charge $30+ more for UR's for our cars compared to UR's for other cars? There is no way there is $30 more material or manufacturing costs that's for sure!

I have no problem paying Rally Armor for their mudflap kits.
They do make a great mounting system, which overcomes the lack of good attach points on these cars. When you install their flaps, you know the quality is there. Much more goes into them than just stamping out the plastic.

I'm not saying they aren't top quality but there is no reason the ones for the WRX are $30+ dollars more than ones for some of the other cars
