Fender Extension: Doing More Than Just Making a Vehicle Attractive

Every vehicle has a fender. It is the panel that is located just above the front wheel. Although it is not that significant to a vehicle, it must not be taken for granted because it is as important as all the other parts. It constrains the road splash when the vehicle is running at speed.

What It Does

Attached to the fender are the fender extensions. Many people think that these are simply attached to beautify a vehicle. In reality they are also useful in brushing aside road debris and dirt from getting into the vehicle's exterior body. The fender extension is placed in the part of the vehicle that guards it from mud or splashing water. It can also serve to get rid of any obstruction that gets in the path of the vehicle. Sometimes they also act as a cushion, which reduces the shock in times of collision. The fender extension panel is used to cover about half of the tire, but they are removable so that whenever a tire needs to be replaced, the wheels can be easily accessed.

More Than Just Appeal

The fender extensions are of several types depending on the type of vehicle model. For every car type, a specified fender extension is needed in order that it fits perfectly and for it to be able to attain how it is expected to deliver. Ideally, the fender is made in such a way that it would extend around the vehicle's wheel going all the way to the ground until maximum coverage is attained. But with this type, it can be hard to get the wheel out in case that you get a flat tire. This is why fender extensions used are those that hang straight down. It allows easy removal of the wheel. Usually the fender extension should be extending straight down giving a few inches of pavement for the wheel. This extra length provides greater protection from the front wheel spray. Sometimes, the fender extensions would just be attached with a duct tape or small nylon bolts.
