    Who makes them for the RS?

    I bought these.
    09 10 11 CHEVY CRUZE TIRE MUD GUARD SPLASH FLAP NEW SET | eBay


    They come with cheap screws that are painted black. The screws started rusting away pretty quick so I had to go buy some stainless steel screws.

    I had to drill a hole into the body of the car to install the front end, the back ends match up with a screw that holds the molding in the back. They feel a little floppy but they are actually on there pretty good, I've kicked off big chunks of frozen solid snow/slush without them getting any damage.

    Oh and I dont think these are any bigger than the factory model. I have pics in my profile of my Cruze with them installed but they kinda hard to see.

    Figured I'd update this thread.

    The above mud guards arrived 2 weeks after purchase. However, despite being black in the listing, they had the Chevy logos on them. No matter, I was able to rub it off with some mineral spirits. I forgot what I used exactly, but paint or lacquer thinner should work and the logos came right off.

    They fit perfectly, and much better than I'd expect a set of ~$20 ebay mud guards to fit. They sit flush against the car and look like they came that way out of the factory.

    Install was easy and with a small screwdriver bit ratchet, I was able to install them without even lifting the car off the ground or removing a wheel. I did need to add an additional screw to hold them in place so they would sit perfectly flush with the car.

    I can get pictures if anyone wants them.

    Hey Xtreme did you order yours through Ali Express? I bought the same ones but haven't tried to put them on yet. Did you use the supplied screws or did you use some stainless ones? Did you put the 'extra' screw somewhere in the middle of the 2 holes on each guard?

    I ordered them from the ebay link I posted earlier. I didn't feel like waiting 30 days to get them, and they were cheaper on ebay. I ended up not using all of the screws that they come with. On mine, I was able to re-use one of the fasteners that was already on the bumper for each of the front, and the screw that was already on the rears. I then added an additional screw or two that goes right through the fenderwell plastic sheet to hold them in securely.

    I'll get some pictures soon.

    Hey Exteme,

    Are you referring to Jaycruzes ebay post, or one you made in another thread. All three i see in this post refer to Ali's website.

    Also you have the 2012 RS package correct.

    Actually, his does have the correct ones. I thought I had posted it. Here are the exact ones I bought:

    eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

    They appear to be identical. I do not have an RS package, I have an Eco.

    Fitment isn't perfect, I'll admit. They take a bit of pressure and screwing them in with an extra screw or two to keep them in place, but once they're on there, they aren't moving and they look factory.
