With that said, I can certainly understand where you are coming from with this. It is just as idiotic as someone from SoCal buying an AWD street car to go AutoX or Time Attack. Those people would be much better served with a light weight RWD or mid-engine vehicle should they have the need to live out their infantile fantasy of being a "racer".

To add, 90+% of the people in SoCal with AWD vehicles will never find themselves in any sort of situation that will need AWD.



Bottom line, live and let live.
Mud flaps are for ricers and nothing will change that, period.

The beautiful thing about SoCal is we’re only a couple hours away from the snow (Big Bear) and we’ve also got the beach to enjoy as well.

Mud flaps, flapping in traffic, is again - hilarious and cringeworthy at the same time.

For those who have them, enjoy them. For those thinking about getting them, make better choices.
