When it comes to choosing accessories for any vehicle, mud guards are often one of the first things that spring to mind. Protective and practical, these can stop dirt, gravel and debris from hitting the underside of your Tesla Model 3, and splashing along the lower part of the door. And this in turn helps to keep your vehicle in great condition, retaining resale value. But what should you consider when choosing mud guards for the Tesla Model 3? Well, here at EV Pimp, we are leading experts when it comes to EV accessories. And this is our guide to everything you should know about mud guards for the Tesla Model 3.
What are the important considerations when choosing mud guards for the Tesla Model 3?
To get the best results from your new Tesla Model 3 mud guards, you should consider:
- The material choice
- The colour
- The shape and sizing
Mud guard material choice
When choosing mud guards for your Tesla Model 3 you will need to consider which type of material to go for. Plastic is one of the most common materials available, but this can become cracked and damaged over time, especially from impact when driving over loose gravel or uneven road surfaces, or from extreme temperature changes. As a result, you should consider a composite rubber and plastic material which allows for flexibility and a full range of use in all temperatures, as well as the strength that plastic can offer. This can offer protection for a longer period of time, and help keep your Tesla Model 3 free from damage and chips. This is also resistant to freezing, offering a greater level of climate and weather protection.
The colour of the mud guards
Typically only a superficial choice, the colour of the mud guards generally wont make too much difference to your vehicle. Black is the most common option, and this is suitable for most vehicle colours, with the black mud guards matching with any black standard trims and the tyres themselves. However, if you want to choose a colour that matches with the rest of your vehicle, white, blue and red mud guards designed for the Tesla Model 3 are available. This can allow the mud guards to appear more like a factory or standard feature, than an aftermarket addition.
The shape and sizing of the mud guards
Mud guards for your Tesla Model 3 should not just be general, one size mudguards. This is because they will not fit flush to the vehicle, and are likely to have gaps. This will allow dirt and debris to still hit the vehicle, causing damage and lowering the resale value of your car. These mud guards may also be too large, and sit too far below the car too. Instead, you should opt for mud guards designed specifically for the Tesla Model 3.
