fiber wheel well liners

Any suggestions for making these smoother?
Last winter I had a heck of a time knocking
off the frozen slush. With the smooth liners
you could just tap it a couple times and it would
fall off, with these fiber things you actually
have to pull it off, PIA
What do you think about plasti dip'n them?

Re: fiber wheel well liners

Same issue getting them clean in the fall, leaves and graas is a pia to get off. In October I went to a outdoor wedding and had to drive through a grass field in order to park and it had been raining all day. Wet grass, hay and mud all stuck to the underside of my wheel wells took months to get out.

I agree pressure wash, but when I'm gettin' home from work, and before I
put it in the garage, so the slush doesn't hog up the floor
as bad.

Re: fiber wheel well liners

You can always use some flex seal and spray the liners, LOL

Re: fiber wheel well liners

We had a couple inches of wet snow here today, and driving home from work I accumulated some ice boulders in the wheel wells, by the splash guards.

After a bit of melting in the garage, I backed out of the garage and used a small ice scraper to dislodge any remaining chunks of ice so I could repark without the garage becoming a wet mess. It worked pretty well, and came off easily.

Re: fiber wheel well liners

I'm not a big fan of these at all, and I haven't even gone through winter/snow/slush yet. Just the wet leaves and debris from the Fall were a royal PITA!! Don't know what they were thinking. I've got "smooth" liners on all my other vehicles and like to keep them pristine, and also put a spray coat of tire dressing on them to keep them looking perfect. These fiber ones seem like they're gonna be a problem.

Re: fiber wheel well liners

Does anyone know why the heck Chrysler decided to use these things.

I am the kind of person that cleans my wheel wells everytime I wash my car and these ugly grays things don't rinse out the dirt if you don't scrub them with a wheel well brush and then they pick up more dirt if you don't let them dry properly before you drive the car again.

I have contemplated removing them and spraying them with bediner or some there paint the will smooth out those grabby fibers.

Re: fiber wheel well liners

I have a Lexus with the same liners and they are wonderful compared to the ones on my 06 WK. They are super easy to clean and always look black and nice. The plastic ones get stained and need too much care.

Supposedly they cut down on the road noise.
The smooth plastic is definitely easier to maintain and keep looking good.
I think I'm going to spray them with plasti dip.
