I have an 07 Rincon with after market Mud lites. The tires protrude 7" past the fenders. I'm slinging mud everywhere.
Are aftermarket fender flares available? Or anything else?
Someone suggested attaching plastic landscape edging to the fenders for extensions, but it is only 4" wide.
Thanks in advance

My issue is- I'm a duck and goose guide, so I haul as many as 6 people,dogs, decoys..... on the trailer, through some pretty nasty stuff. I hate coating my clients with mud.

Get you some big truck flaps and let them hang down from the rear fenders.

If you cant find a set of finder flairs big enough you could see about using mud flaps off a big truck cut them down to size and fix up some kind of support to hold them up.

You know? A couple of the guys do have an idea there. Quadracer and Mudd suggested truck flaps? Find yourself some old black rubber floor mats. This way it cost you nothing, and you can hold it up to the wheel well and mark where you want to cut them. Make one a template you can live with, and then take the second one and lay your template on it so you can cut both of them the same dimensions (just be sure to mark it one for the left, and one for the right side so you don't cut both of them for the same side.)

If you decided to try it this way? I would look for some hidden bracket or a way to mount the rubber so you don't ruin any plastic or drill into the metal. All of this may sound like it can from the R.N.E.? (RED NECK ENGINEERING). But you never know what you can accomplish until you try. Plus if you find used mats? This cost you nothing but time.

Let us know how this turns out if you try it. I've been looking for some wider flares myself. I guess no-one seems to thing these Honda ATV's need any wider flares?

I would think he would need to stay with a good mud tire because he pulls a loaded trailer in mud and so on. That would make for a bad trip if you get stuck with clients aboard.

If your tires are sticking out that far it sounds like you are running straight axle wheels or running wheel spacers. I have 26" mudlites on my Rincon and they only stick out 2" on each side. Hope this helps. Not sure of any finder ext. for the Rincon.

Recently while in a local Hardware Store I saw some roller rubber in different thicknesses that was four feet wide and sold by the running foot. So a one foot by four foor piece was $8.00 but you could buy as much as you needed. It also came in two different colors, red and black.

I noticed this when I was looking for fender extensions for my Foreman. I did find them made for my ATV, but they don't sell them for a Rincon. But my point is this can be attached to the inside of the wheel wells on your Rincon with some effort and design. And it can be added to keep the mud at bay, and without cutting your plastic up and making the install look nasty.

If you know someone who is good at bending 1/2 EMT? You can ask them to bend the EMT to the inside of each fender well. You can then mount the rubber to the EMT and install it inside of the wheel wells. When you are done this will not only cover the tires, but can make the plastic fenders more solid if done correctly. And EMT is real cheap.

I'd go to one of the larger places like Lowe's or Home Depot and see if they sell this same type of rubber material? You can come up with some design, and do it fairly cheap if the mud is as bad as you say it is? Although a 7" wide area is quite an area to fill, this can do it for you.

Just an idea....Good Luck

Well I after numerous attemps of mud flaps(too flimsy) and sheet rubber (wouldnt withstand the weight of the mud) I found 6" plastic wire duct cover, cut them to shape, painted them black and mounted them. They work.
Tell me what you all think.
