I bought a front set of mud flaps for my Tesla from Tesla, but they only sell front ones. So, I had to order a second set (of 4) from a third party vendor on Amazon to secure rear flaps. After installing the rear flaps on the Tesla I got thinking it would be a good idea to order some mud flaps for the Bolt since my wife often comes home with mud splattered across the sides of the car. When I went online to order a set I discovered nobody makes mud flaps for Bolts. I guess so few Bolts have been sold there just isn't enough of a market for them. Since I had the unused Tesla front mud flaps I decided to see how they might work on the Bolt. Fortunately, they were a close fit and with just a half inch cut at the radius in an area that can't be seen they fit like they were made for the car. The entire set of front and rear were only $28, so it was a bargain

Those look pretty good! I was afraid that their wouldn't be enough clearance, especially in the winter with snow and ice build-up in the wheel well. But the clearance there looks adequate and would help keep the lower parts of the door cleaner on dirty weather.

We don't get much snow where we live in the NC foothills. And when it does snow we just stay home till the roads are cleared since my wife and I are both retired. Even in some snow I think there would be sufficient clearance.

The composite material of the wheel well liners seemed to hold the four small screws I used to attach each mud flap. They seem quite sturdy.

Are they helping ?

Hi. I have a 2020 Bolt LT. Which model Tesla were these made for? There is a set on Amazon for Model 3
A-Premium Splash Guards Mud Flaps
Do you know if these can be adapted to the Bolt?

Thanks
Wes

The flaps I ordered were for a 2022 Tesla Model 3. I already had Tesla made mud flaps for my front wheels, but Tesla doesn't sell mud flaps for the rear wheels, so I had to order a full set of all four mud flaps from a third party vendor in order to obtain a set of rear flaps. With the extra set of front flaps that I didn't need I decided to see how they fit on our Bolt. I was happily surprised that it was a very close fit on the front and only needed me to make a half inch cut at the radius of the flap to fit nearly perfectly. The composite wheel liners on the Bolt hold a small diameter screw well, so I used four small screws on each flap, but could probably gotten by with just three.

I bought a set of flat universal mud flaps for my 2017 I used the factory mounting clips that were on the car to mount them.
They worked OK but they didn't catch everything, these look like they would work much better, I put a few sets of these soft rubber flaps on my few cadllacs that belong to my friends.

These look great on your car, thanks for posting a solution to my problem
