I have to wonder if the mudflaps interfere with the aerodynamics of the car and reduce gas mileage?

It is possible, but frontal area of mudflaps is very small compared to total area of car. Also, they are behind wheels and the most of air resistance is on the tyre. I think that interfering of mudflaps is minor.

Thanks Dare4x4

So they're not that noticeable when looking at the car from a distance?

It's even easier and faster with a #2phillips bit and 1/4" drive ratchet!

I may get a set of those. Should keep the water spray down on the side of the car.

Garage
@WallyjY: Affect fuel mileage? You wouldn't notice it if it did. Too many other variables in day-to-day driving. Besides, they beat getting stone/rock chips thrown up from the tires. Or crap from rain/snow on the highway. Good fuel economy begins at the steering wheel, not the drive wheels.

Besides, I think those mud/stone guards look sexy on wife's Tucson. At least in the morning, that is.
