Wheel wells
 
What does the material in your wheel wells look like? Can you snap a pic and share?

I'll get a pic later but it's a flexible fibrous material, not hard plastic like I'm used to. Searching around it appears Toyota has been using this material for years and helps with sound insulation.

Thanks!!! Looks like they would absorb water?

I don't care for that material. I use to like to wipe down and shine the wheel wells on previous vehicles.
But if it lessens road noise I guess thats a plus and now I have less to clean.

We noticed the unusual material also. Didn't know it would help with road noise, but that is a plus. We gave ours EVERY opportunity to absorb water those first two days, but the fabric didn't appear to change at all.

they are the same liners used in the 11+ wk2 Jeep and Rango. They cut down on road noise and are very easy to clean IMHO. They will retain a little water after washing or rain...but just let them drain a bit an dthye are good.
