    I realize I'm gonna get some hate from the purist crowd, but has anyone put on any kind of rally flaps on their SHO? I went to 275's, and I love the stance, but I cringe driving on Pennsylvania roads knowing that with the extra width of the tires, I'm getting all kinds of gravel and such thrown into the side of my doors. Not only is it impossible to maintain a clean car, I'm just waiting for a stone or something to get kicked up and scratch my paint. I'm aware that (to my knowledge) no pre made flaps for the SHO exist, but I just wondered if anyone has done it to see how it'd look before I take the plunge and buy materials to make a set.

    I'd cringe FAR more driving an SHO with mud flaps.

    Kinda like my Italian friend's moms wrapping their beautiful furniture in vinyl/plastic.

    Ford makes a Taurus specific set. They made a noticeable difference on mine and I am running 275s as well.

    Running oem as well and look factory as mentioned above. They do seem to keep the dirt down in the winter.
