Anyone running their car without wheel liners. I have worn holes in all 4 of my liners and would prefer to just remove them all together? Any concerns?
Yes. Road debris will start hitting the stuff that used to be protected by the wheel liners.Anyone running their car without wheel liners. I have worn holes in all 4 of my liners and would prefer to just remove them all together? Any concerns?
I did that, actually. I made my own wheel liner out of gorilla tape while the replacement was being shipped over from the UK.black duct tape
One thing to watch for. I was running without a liner on the left-rear and the wires to the tail lights worked their way down and got completely workn through by the tire (I had installed a BOE surge tank.) So if you do some non factory solution, make sure your wires are secured and out of the way.What do you think it would hit if you didn't have the liner?
Creating your own is a good option, or look on the wrecked forum, see if you can nab a set from a FUBAR'ed car.
Any chance you can post a few more pictures?2-Elevens don't have wheel liners, and if anything... their clams are even thinner. On my 2008 2-Eleven, I "tiled" the inside of the wheel well with rectangular dense foam rubber pads, about 1/4" thick. So far I haven't had any cracks in the clam.
The tiled foam seems like gold. Looks like that'll probably be the route I go since the last horrible, awful shop that worked on my car didn't reattach the bracket for one of the liners, so it always rubs.Holy Thread Resurrection Batman!
Also thinking about doing this as I'm SICK and TIRED of replacing the damn FRONT liners.
