Mud flap questions
So I bought two replacement mud flaps to mount on my bus. One side is smooth and one side has a slight texture to it. Which side should be facing the wheel, the smooth side or the textured side? I would guess the smooth side to keep mud from sticking to it, but I dunno.
What should the clearance distance be between the flap and the wheel? I think it's 5" but I'm not sure. The replacement beam that I'm mounting the flaps to is (I think) an inch or two forward of where the original flaps were so I might have problems with them smacking the tires. If need be I can mount them farther back, but it would have to be on the undersides of my below-floor boxes so I'd have to trim them considerably.
Also, the bottoms of the flaps should be 6" above the ground?
