Wales 2012 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Lux Sumatra Black

Purchased genuine RRS ones and had dealer fit them, expensive but they do the job well and look good, and unlike many snide OEM ones don't get caught on speed humps. Mud flaps 151 inc Vat for front and rear fitting extra.
Rimmers have genuine ones in stock for above price currently. Genuine do come with comprehensive fitting instructions for you DIY people. Very Happy John

I bought both front and back genuine ones on ebay for 120 (for all 4) and fitting is easy, front ones are very easy as you fix the flap to lower moulding, rear is bit harder then that.

I have yet to do mine but from the photos they look like a exact copy, perhaps even from the factory that made them for RR. Love to see factory fitting instructions if someone will post . M16 SVD 4,4 HSE with a few extras, Sold R50 , Wife SQ5 , BMW R1200GSW.

If you have side steps fitted to your RRS the mud flaps will require cutting, slight alteration to make them fit, just a heads up.
Same obviously if already fitted and you purchase any after fit side steps, mud flaps require altering. John

Agreed. This is by far the worst car I've owned for getting a mucky backside and I've got flaps fitted. I may be wrong but I wonder whether it has anything to do with that spoiler thing above the back window

+1 on this. I have mudflaps on mine, but I have never seen a vehicle that collects dirt on its rear end like this one does. Quirk of the aerodynamics I guess - watch for exhaust steam on a cold morning - you can see it running upwards over the rear screen at lowish speeds. MY2016 HSE D SDV6 - gone due to fuel dilution problems.

Can anyone confirm if you have to take the wheels off to fit the front and rear mudflaps, or is it possible without doing so ?

Thanks

According to the LR accessories website they are style 5007 (although I am not sure if it was the same style number when I bought the car). It says 21" 5 Split-Spoke Style 5007.

Tyre size is 275/45/21.

The alloys are diamond cut. Current: VW Golf banger until my delayed XC90 arrives

Absolutely I noticed it last month in the super cold here in aberfeldy in the still breathless mornings the exhaust steam following the car behind it as it drive's along the driveway, proving why the car is so dirty, I also have mudflaps and car is no cleaner than the sport I had without flaps - go figure! My64 Supercharged Autobiography loads of issues had to bail into a:

I can confirm that the from mudflaps can be fitted easily without removing the wheels or jacking the car up 😁. It got too rainy to try the rear ones today !

... and the same for the rears too - no need to jack the car or remove the wheels. Though a dumpy Philips and a short 10mm ratchet will help. And a dremel too ! Play: '59 VW Kabrio & '90 964
